Located in International Terminal A (Inside Security). Towards Gates A7-A18, past the Air France Lounge, take the escalators down to the entrance on the left side.
    Travel times are estimates and are not guaranteed. Airports may require you to re-clear security and immigration control to reach the lounge. Clearing security might require a boarding pass departing from the terminal. For lounges inside security or immigration, you must first check your baggage and obtain your boarding pass.
    SatisfactoryWobbly tables and not enough power sockets. Would be useful with USB sticks too. Food OK. Toilets terrible. Only two small toilets and one sink. No room to freshen up. Much better in Domestic Bidvest.

    Worth a DetourClean, quiet and comfortable. Good selection of drinks (no hunters dry 😔) Food looks good if you eat beef and chicken on the bone, toast or sandwiches, veggie options are very limited. Explore airport!

    Worth a DetourLovely lounge, love the staff, food was pretty good. Coffee wasn’t great. The lounge could use more power points.

    SatisfactoryVery VERY basic lounge. Left the food alone. OK coffee, at least much better than the Bidvest lounge.
