Travel Club Lounge at Kolkata Airport Review

Kolkata Airport currently uses a single terminal for both domestic and international passengers and has 2 airport lounges as of now – a regular lounge and then a premium lounge.

Here’s a quick review of the regular lounge that can be accessed by most travellers using credit/debit cards. 


TypeRegular Airport Lounge
Card accepted
Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club & many more
LocationFollow lounge signboard
Plug pointsYes
AmbianceGood interiors but mostly crowded
Food optionsDecent food spread

If you’re holding Priority Pass issued by super premium credit cards, its better to access the nearby Irish lounge instead of this one as it’s usually crowded most of the time.


I was able to get in after spending over ~15 mins in the queue. Here’s a quick look at the queues across 2 counters and it remains the same size for more than a hour.

Apart from regular reasons, I see that the delay was largely due to some people trying to access using in-eligible cards after which they change the card, which generally takes time.

Reg. card acceptance, most credit/debit cards are accepted. Here’s a quick look at various programs:

Seating and Interiors

The lounge is pretty decent in size but looking at the footfalls at the lounge I would say that the airport deserves a bigger lounge. When I was there it had almost ~90% occupancy and hence I didn’t click many pictures, but here is one.

Because of the high occupancy it’s noisy and feels lot crowded, just like the crowded Bangalore Airport lounge which is now called as BLR lounge that was previously called as Plaza Premium Lounge.


They had a decent food spread with fruits and desserts. They also had a live food station which probably makes only Omelette I guess. Here is a quick look at some pics:
