My last stop in Korea after Seoul and Jeju was Busan. I only had a couple of hours of transfer time there, though, and so I headed to check in for my flight back to Tokyo right after my arrival from Jeju.
Once airside, I had a chance to visit the three Priority Pass lounges the airport’s international terminal offers. Here’s a look at the first one of them – Asiana Lounge.
The lounge is located airside, one floor above the main departures level of Busan’s international terminal.
Just like the other two (domestic) Asiana lounges I visited on this trip – at Seoul Gimpo and Jeju airports – this one consisted of a single room with about 40 or 50 sofa chairs. Unlike the other two lounges which had some nice decorations, this one was totally uninteresting.
While the sofa seating took by far the majority of the lounge, there was also a business center with three laptops in one of the corners.
And, there was a drink and snacks corner as well.
Food and Drinks Selection
Just like the lounge itself, the refreshments selection was quite similar to the two domestic lounges as well.
As for food, there were some packaged snacks, sandwiches, and nuts.
As for drinks, there was a selection of canned (and bottled) soft drinks. There was also the usual coffee machine and a selection of teas.
Finally, there were some alcoholic beverages – red and white wine, and two kinds of whisky. That was virtually the only difference from the lounge’s domestic version.
Asiana Lounge Busan International Terminal Summary
The lounge is nothing to rave about, and it is only marginally better than what the airline offers for domestic passengers at Seoul Gimpo and Jeju. That is understandable, however, given that Asiana Airlines operates only fairly short flights out of Busan.
If you only have access to this lounge, you should plan to spend as little time in the lounge as possible. On the other hand, if you have Priority Pass, there are better options at the airport than the Asiana Lounge.
