Oneworld debuts dedicated lounge in Seoul

The lounge features the alliance’s bold Travel Bright branding

The oneworld alliance opened its first-ever fully branded dedicated airport lounge in Seoul, built in collaboration with global aviation ground services provider Swissport, and the team behind its ASPIRE Airport Lounges.

Featuring the alliance’s bold Travel Bright branding presented in a sophisticated and welcoming way, the lounge’s design incorporates subtle nods to South Korean culture, capturing the colourful Lantern Festival in mesmerising glass art and the ‘Gat’ hat in a welcoming bar, mixing traditional and contemporary aesthetics.

The 555m2 lounge features a wide choice of distinct zones and spacious comfortable seating areas with relaxing, private or more sociable spaces in which customers can unwind, work or dine. There is seating available for up to 148 customers.

Situated in Terminal 1 of Incheon International Airport, the lounge is no more than a 10-minute walk from the furthest oneworld airlines’ departure gates. Incheon International Airport is served by seven oneworld member airlines: American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways and SriLankan Airlines. Between them, these oneworld member airlines operate more than 60 weekly flights to Seoul, connecting the Korean capital with more than 900 destinations worldwide through the oneworld member network.

Gerhard Girkinger, oneworld vice president, customer experience, delivery and membership, said: “With oneworld celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2024, we are incredibly proud to be opening the very first oneworld branded lounge experience for our member airlines’ customers.

“The new oneworld lounge is an exciting next step in our vision to making travel bright. Together with ASPIRE, we have combined refined fixtures and finishes, digital technologies, and warm and ergonomic settings to create smart and memorable travel experiences.

“Our new Incheon lounge resets the benchmark for contemporary travel and will serve as the blueprint for future oneworld lounges in select airports around the world.”

The new lounge is open daily between 07.30 and 23.45 (apart from Monday and Saturday when it opens earlier at 04.30), for eligible oneworld Emerald and Sapphire customers departing from Seoul on oneworld flights, as well as First and Business Class customers travelling with oneworld member airlines.
