The lounge is open daily between 7AM and 8:45PM. And, while it can, of course, be accessed by departing passengers, it is also available for use by arriving passengers. It is located landside, on the 3rd floor of the central part of the terminal, and can be reached easily by following “Card Member’s Lounge” signs.
Right after the lounge’s entrance, there is a reception and a luggage storage area.
Then, on the reception side, there is also the restroom entrance, as well as a rack with Japanese newspapers and magazines. Across from it, there is a “priority seating” area.
Turning to the left at the end of the “priority seating” area, there is a room with rows of counters with bar-height chairs.
On the other hand, going straight leads into the main part of the lounge consisting of the drink and snack station on the very left, as well as two fairly large seating areas.
The first seating area features interestingly designed large chairs in pairs of two with coffee tables.
The second seating area is a more traditional arrangement with rows of sofa chairs.
As should be the norm, every single seat had access to a power outlet.
Food and Drinks Selection
Like most of other Japanese credit card lounges, the selection of drinks and snacks was nothing to write home about. However, unlike the others I’ve been to, this lounge offered free alcoholic drinks.
There were dispensers for four types of drinks including two brands of beer.
At the time of my visit, there were also some prepackaged snacks. Given that they were located under a “Halloween Party” sign, I am not sure whether or not they are there year round.
Other than that, there was the usual selection of hot and cold soft drinks.
The hot drinks included coffee provided by UCC, as well as a limited selection of tea bags.
As for soft drinks, there was a soda and juice dispenser, as well as tomato juice in a pitcher.
Premium Lounge Nagoya Centrair Summary
Unless you live in Japan and have a Japanese credit card, the chances that you will be able to visit this lounge are slim. That is not a big deal though, given that it is about as simple as a lounge can get.
However, compared with some of the other credit card lounges at airports around Japan, this one offered a slightly more extensive selection of refreshments.
But then again, overall, it is not a lounge that one would want to arrive at the airport early for.
