Austrian Airlines Senator Lounge Vienna Airport

Posted on June 22, 2014 by in Airline Reviews

Austrian Airlines hub Vienna Schwechat Airport has a Schengen zone and a non-Schengen zone. Both areas have a similar set up of lounges – a Business Lounge and a Senator Lounge. The Senator lounges are usually slightly nicer and have better food.

I'm always amazed that Lufthansa opened their better version of a lounge – the Senator – and not the Business Lounge to Star Alliance Gold elites. But it's good for all of us with an Aegean Airlines Gold card.

The lounges are rather small with just about 40-50 seats, so it can get very busy in there! I have been there multiple times and the dishes offered have always been excellent, like a good eatery-type food. There's often a well-done pasta and a vegetarian option such as salad. While there are fewer options, the quality of the food is on par with the coveted Turkish Airlines Gold Lounge in Istanbul.

There's usually also a tasty dessert on offer, as well as champagne, red and white wines and long list of soft drinks.

The WiFi is fast (as is all the free WiFi at the airport).

It's certainly one of the best lounges in Europe and I'm always happy to connect through Vienna if I can stop by one of these lounges.
