Turkish Airlines Arrival Lounge Istanbul Reviews
Spectacular Preflight Experience Dec 31, 2013
The lounge at Ataturk International Airport has recently been reopened and has been make up with the new features that create a welcoming atmosphere. Access is very simple, if you travel with business class on Turkish Airlines or any of the member airlines of StarAlliance, or hold the gold card in one of StarAlliance Airlines, you can totally enjoy this benefit.
The access of the lounge also made it simple, there is no need for the lounge invitation anymore, just scan your barcode at the gate upon reaching the lounge. There are also some staff counter where agents are available to deal with special needs or request.
Once you enter, on the left hand side, you will see the luggage storage room where you can store hand carry luggage or excess belonging while you can have more freedom to enjoy the lounge. Next to the luggage storage, I thought the original idea is for the movie as there is a big screen, curtain and popcorn machine at the entrance but seem like now they turn it into classical music or orchestra vdo and people snooze inside. The seat are comfortable, foods & beverage are varieties with hot and cold especially drinks are stored in every corner to make sure the passengers not have to queue for a long time to get one. For those who traveling with children, a special play area called Curiosity is provided with high-tech equipment like ipad or computer generated game. For those wishing to freshen up will find shower facilities available.
Summary of Lounge facilities:
A wide range of food and beverage
A wide selection of leading papers and magazines
Charging station for electronic devices
I truely enjoy my waiting time at this lounge and to my experience it is the best lounge I've ever been to, even the Thai Airways Royal Silk Lounge in Bangkok still have to improve to reach this lounge of Turkish Airlines at Istanbul Ataturk International Airport.
