Lounge access at CGK Soekarno-Hatta Jakarta International Airport

Click here for the most recent PREMIER LOUNGE update, February 2016.

At Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta (CGK), there are a few lounge options. They are mostly operated third parties that accepts, normally, both airline loyalty programs and credit card membership of certain types. As a Star Alliance Gold status, I have access to the ‘Premier Lounge First and Business Class” operated by JAS Airport Services. Check out my short visit to this lounge.

With the list of accepted membership allowed here, the lounge seems quite small. Luckily, it was rather empty when I went in.

Yet, it still feels quite crowded because of its size.

Another thing I noticed was the smell of cigarette even outside of the smoking room, even though there’s a designated smoking room – separated only by a glass door. No surprise here but it might be a new experience for foreigners.

Decent-looking computer workstations, I did not try them out. Hopefully they all work.

Very big drink fridge… making it look empty. Drinks available include soda, local beer, juice, and hot beverages (coffee and tea).

More glimpse of food stations. Warm foods of all sorts. [Was in a hurry so I did not have time to take close up pictures, next time…]

Time to board my flight – NH 836/GA 9330/UA 9642 – but not before i stop by at the lounge and snap a few pictures. It also says on the bottom: We dare to report and reject bribery. Hmmm…
