Passengers travelling from terminal A, the terminal used by Lufthansa and Star Alliance, can also visit the lounge by using the connecting corridor between terminal A and terminal B. There are plenty of signs to follow. However it can take up to ten minutes to reach the lounge and a similar amount of time to reach the gate after the visit.

How do I get in?

The lounge is used by most airlines operating at Düsseldorf airport with the exception of Lufthansa, Star Alliance and Lufthansa partners. Virtually all airlines part of Skyteam and OneWorld use the Hugo Junkers Lounge for their premium passengers and top frequent flyers, although there is also a lounge in terminal C used for some longhaul flights.

It is also possible to access the lounge using for example Priority Pass and to pay for entry.

What’s it like?

The lounge is fairly dark with the interior mostly in dark brown and black, however at the same time it is actually a rather stylish lounge. It has a unique mix of some modern design elements combined with the original terminal design from the 70’s.

Inside the lounge

It is not the largest of lounges and being the main third-party lounge at a fairly large airport like Düsseldorf and used by a fair number of airlines means it can be pretty crowded during rush hour.

There is a good apron view through the windows overlooking the aprons at terminal B and terminal C and parts of the runways.

The lounge is not bad for a third-party lounge. There is some hot food and a reasonable drinks selection, a stylish interior and a good apron view. But the lounge can be fairly crowded during peak hours.
