Lounge Review: Asiana Lounge (Domestic Terminal) at Seoul Gimpo

Lounge Review: Asiana Lounge at Seoul Gimpo

Before taking my Korean Air 747 flight from Seoul Gimpo to Jeju back in October, I had a chance to visit the Asiana Lounge inside Gimpo’s domestic terminal.

The lounge is located landside – and as such, you should allow yourself enough time to clear security if you visit. It is accessible to Asiana business class passengers as well as Star Alliance Gold members. Separately, it can also be accessed using Priority Pass which is how I got in.

The entrance to the Asiana Lounge is located on the departures level, to the left of the security checkpoint. When I visited, the airport was undergoing some reconstruction, and as such, the entrance to the lounge wasn’t exactly appealing.

Lounge Overview

The lounge’s reception area was nicely decorated – in a style similar to Asiana’s business class lounge at Incheon. Although, at a much smaller scale…

Food and Drinks Selection

As one would expect from a domestic lounge, the refreshments offered in the lounge were nothing to get excited about.

There were canned and bottled soft drinks in a refrigerator, and there was also a coffee machine as well as a small selection of teas.

Asiana Lounge Seoul Gimpo Domestic Terminal Summary

The Asiana Lounge at Seoul Gimpo’s domestic terminal is exactly what one could expect from a domestic lounge.

The downside of this one, though, is the fact that it is located landside.

As such, rather than spending time in the lounge, I would suggest you enjoy the city of Seoul for a bit longer. Especially given the fact that boarding on Korean domestic flights starts 10 minutes before departure and the gate closes just 5 minutes before departure.
