An airport lounge is a facility operated at many airports around the world.
Airport lounges offer, for selected passengers, comforts beyond those afforded in the airport terminal itself, such as more comfortable seating, quieter environments, and often better access to customer service representatives.
For many airlines, a first class lounge will also be offered to international first class and top-tier passengers.
First class lounges are usually more exclusive and will feature extra amenities over business class that are more in line with the European/Asian concept of an airport lounge.
In the few cases where an amenity is offered only in the business class lounge, first class passengers are permitted to use the business lounge if they wish.
In any case, anyone with a request for VIP Lounge access booked via Airport VIP Services has access to the business class lounge—such as if a traveling companion is not in the VIP booking and cannot be brought into the VIP lounge as a guest.
VIP passengers can shower, rest, and eat before or after a long-haul international flight.
