Before flying a short 35-minute flight to Pune, I visited the GVK domestic lounge in Mumbai. This lounge is accessible to those flying business class within India, or those with elite status on an airline. I think you can pay to access as well but not too sure about that one. Anyways, Once you enter, There are two ways you can go, right or left. To the left, there’s just seating and nothing more.

Oh and there is a spa room entrance to the left side.

There are some newspapers lined up along the wall as well.

Each of these seats has power ports and international standard too which is nice.

Now looking right is where the main rest of the lounge is.

There are some high top seats along the windows for 4 at each table and they all have two sets of power ports on the table.

The views throughout the lounge were good too.

There was also a couple departure boards throughout the terminal. This one was by the entrance. Keep in mind that the GVK domestic lounge is a silent lounge so there won’t be any announcements of any flights boarding but rather something you’ll have to keep track of.

So anyways there was more seating on the right side.

That pretty much is all the features and aspects of the lounge. There is wifi available, but you have to have a phone that can receive SMS at the time in order to make the wifi work for you.

Overall, this lounge never fails to impress me. This lounge is available for use on domestic flights within India. When you look at what the offerings are in this lounge and seeing what US airlines offer in comparison, I don’t think one has to say much. A well-done effort by GVK and TFS.
