To Hong Kong and Back: Business Lounge Schengen – Krakow Airport

After spending a few days in Krakow, I left my travel buddy to begin my solo trip to Hong Kong. To get there, I needed to fly from Krakow to Poland, and I found cheap flights on Aegean Air, a Star Alliance airline and one of my favorite carriers (even in economy). In Krakow’s airport, there are two Priority Pass lounges to choose from, depending on your destination. Since my next destination was in the Schengen Zone (Athens), I spent my time at the appropriately named “Business Lounge Schengen- Krakow“.

I had to wait until two hours before departure to check into my flight, since I couldn’t check in online for some reason. That went fast, and security was really quick (it is Europe, after all). A short walk through a duty-free area brought me to the Business Lounge- Schengen.

Inside, it’s basically one small-ish room. The airport isn’t that big to begin with, so that limits crowding, but I can imagine this lounge hits capacity quickly. As a result, I didn’t take too many photos of the common areas, to respect the other travelers.

There was a food area though, with some light snacks. One table featured dessert.

Another featured some (delicious) cold cuts and cheeses. On the back wall were some coffee machines, and of course, beer, cider, and wine.

I spent about an hour and a half here working before I got bored. That’s when I decided to take a look around the terminal and wait at the gate for my Aegean flight.

Overall, can’t complain about lounge access in an airport as small as Krakow!
