Lounge Review: Sky Court Lounge at Budapest F. Liszt

Lounge Review: Sky Court Lounge at Budapest F. Liszt

The second lounge I visited at Budapest airport after the Menzies Lounge was Sky Court Lounge.

The Sky Court Lounge is located in the food court area one floor above the main departures level as well. In fact, it is located right next to the Menzies Lounge.

Entrance to the lounge is on the floor above the main departures level.

Besides being a Priority Pass lounge, it is also the lounge used by Finnair and other airlines, as well as some credit card companies.

Then, there are two seating areas on each side of the first area.

The one on the left features sofa chairs – both individually and in groups. There are also some dining tables with a bench along the wall and some chairs. Finally, in one corner there is a counter with two computers.

Sky Court Lounge Budapest Summary

The Sky Court Lounge at Budapest airport is quite spacey. However, during my visit around 10AM on a Friday, it was crowded and I had a hard time finding a space to sit.

As for the drinks and food selection, it was decent. While there are no hot meals, there was plenty of cold snacks – more than enough for having a quick bite before a short intra-European flight.

Before you go... Here are 3 quick tips for travel:

For your convenience: Price comparison sites

When searching for flights and accommodation, use comparison sites that will summarize prices from a variety of sources including the airline sites and online travel agencies for you. I recommend HotelsCombined for comparing hotel prices and Momondo for comparing flight prices.

For your comfort: Unlimited airport lounge access

If you generally fly in economy class and don’t have an airline status, I recommend considering a Priority Pass Prestige membership which will give you unlimited access to over 1,200 lounges at more than 500 airports all over the world.

For your peace of mind: Travel insurance

Make sure you have adequate insurance coverage - whether through your credit card or through insurance policy purchased separately. This will help save your trip when you get sick or things stolen on the road, in other words, when things go wrong. In case you didn't get your travel insurance yet, I recommend getting a free quote from World Nomads. To save some time, you can also use the form below.
