Where is it?

The Cathay Pacific Lounge is located airside in the non-Schengen area in terminal 2. The entrance is opposite gate E7, which means a left turn after passport control.

As security control takes place at the gate for non-Schengen passengers in terminal 2, passengers should allow plenty of time to reach the gate after the lounge visit.

How do I get in?

The lounge is available for Cathay Pacific first class and business class passengers as well as OneWorld Sapphire and Emerald passengers travelling on Cathay Pacific.

The lounge can also be used when travelling on other OneWorld carriers when holding a Sapphire or Emerald card or when travelling in business class and first class, but the lounge is currently only open in the morning and the early afternoon in connection with the Cathay Pacific departures to Hong Kong and not available for afternoon and evening departures from terminal 2.
