The lounge comes in the typical Avianca colors of red and grey. There are actually two similar-looking lounges – one just for Avianca's Business Class ticket holders and one for partners (incl. United and Copa) and Star Alliance Gold holders.

English is not a language that's used at all at airports in Colombia. It's odd since it's a modern, well-designed airport but English isn't considered an 'aviation language' here. You could also speak Japanese and would get as many stares from the locals.

Also at all lounges in Colombia you are checked twice – first by security personnel who evaluate the boarding pass and Star Alliance Gold membership and then by the lounge personnel who scan the boarding pass.

The lounge itself is very big and offers a nice view (though set back) towards the apron. Lots of soft drinks and surprisingly good coffee is on offer. Beer can also be had.

There are rather large quantities of snacks – though I found the quality to be lacking.

The internet was VERY fast.

The lounge also offers showers and squeaky-clean bathrooms.

It comes equipped with a TV (watching) zone and a productive zone with pre-installed tablets and computers.

This is a good lounge and comparable to the best United clubs back home.
