Lounge Review: Asiana Lounge at Jeju International

Lounge Review: Asiana Lounge at Jeju International

After spending a night at Jeju island during my quick trip to Korea back in October, it was time to take another domestic flight – to Busan. Before taking the Jeju Air flight, however, I had a chance to visit Asiana Lounge thanks to my Priority Pass membership.

Lounge Overview

The Asiana Lounge at Jeju airport is located land side with the hallway leading to its entrance being next to one of the terminal’s restrooms.

What is up with Korean domestic lounges and restrooms?!

As for the lounge itself, it consisted of one big room large part of which was taken up by sofa chairs in a variety of arrangements. Next to one of the groups of sofas, there was also a television with the news on (in Korean, of course).

One thing that I have to note here is that I thought the lounge was fairly nicely decorated. With large bookshelves on one of the walls, and some variety in the sofa chairs, it didn’t feel as “sterile” as some other similar lounges feel.

Besides the sofas, there was also a pair of counters offering great views of the apron along the far end of the lounge.

Food and Drinks Selection

The food and drinks selection was more or less identical with what was offered in the lounge’s counterpart at Seoul Gimpo airport.

There was a drink heater with canned tea and coffee, as well as a fridge with soft drinks including orange juice and sodas.

Asiana Lounge Jeju Summary

The Asiana Lounge in Jeju did not surprise nor disappoint. It was virtually identical to the one I visited the day before in Seoul.

The one thing that made the lounge worth visiting, though, were the great views of the apron and one of the runways it offered.
