Air India’s domestic business class lounge is located up one level from the main departures level inside of the domestic terminal. Initially it was hard to get to considering the only elevator that could lead us there was temporarily not working and the escalator on the other end of the concourse was open but blocked off above.
In either case, I eventually made my way up.
The agent scanned my boarding pass in the lounge, checked my gold status, and let me in. Here are the access requirements to use this lounge:
- Business Class Passenger on Air India
- Star Alliance Gold members traveling on Air India (+ 1 guest)
- United Club Members/Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Worldwide Members traveling on Air India (+1 guest)
Star Alliance rules dictate that this lounge can be used by any airline, but since this is the domestic terminal, and Air India is the only Star Alliance domestic carrier, I only mention Air India.
The lounge is not especially large, but I would say its sufficiently large enough for the number of departures the airline handles at a given time.
There were seats in many different number combos throughout the lounge, however, the seating was definitely dated and aged.
The ports were standard India ports, so if you are not from India, do be sure to have an adapter. And as is the case with India and many other countries, you’ll need to potentially flip a switch to get the power flowing.
There was a selection of news papers as well.
Considering I had views of an extremely crowded Plaza Premium lounge maybe 50 or so feet from this lounge, I was definitely thankful to have this empty lounge.
There were a decent amount of food options.
I definitely missed being in India and eating airport food with actual spice in it, and everything I ate was quite enjoyable.
There were also drinks in a fridge.
Showers and Bathroom
The domestic lounge actually had shower services but I didn’t use them.
There was also a bathroom which was quite well kept.
Overall, the lounge was quaint, yet plenty sufficient for anything someone could need before a flight. Considering most domestic flights would fall within 3 hours or so, I think this lounge is definitely solid for all things considered.
