Where is it?
The Malmö Aviation Yellow Room lounge is located in the departure hall at Bromma airport, to the left after the entrance on the balcony right above the restaurant. The lounge is located landside which means that all passengers need to allow sufficient time to pass security control to get to the gate for boarding after the visit.
How do I get in?
The lounge is used by all airlines using Bromma airport. Malmö Aviation gold card holders and passengers with fully flex tickets get in. For Brussels Airlines business class passengers and Star Alliance Gold (and Miles & More equivalents) get in and for Finnair business class passengers, One World Sapphire and Emerald and Finnair Silver, Gold and Platinum members get in. It is also possible to access the lounge using for example Priority Pass.
The lounge is only open on weekdays. During weekends some airlines provide a voucher to eligible passengers to use in the restaurant.
What’s it like?
According to Malmö Aviation the lounge has been designed as a showroom with a modern and attractive interior. They have also decided to skip the traditional luxuries and focus on what they believe really matters to business travellers. The whole idea with Bromma airport is that due to its central location (just 10 km from the city centre) most passengers will try to arrive as close as possible to the departure time, not hours in advance to enjoy the lounge.
As the name suggests the interior goes in yellow and orange, and it really does. The main part of the lounge is a large room with small tables and armchairs where the entrance and reception desk are also located.
On the upper floor a long table provides space for those who prefers to work in the lounge.
The lounge has a decent view of the departure hall and the restaurant. As the lounge is before security passengers should leave the lounge no later than 20-25 minutes before departure (depending on time of the day) to have sufficient time to pass security control. However you can easily see the security control (and the lines for it) from the lounge and plan accordingly.
Food and drinks
The small self-service buffet is located to the left of the entrance in a small separate room. In the morning yoghurt, cereals and croissants are offered, later during the day snacks are served such as crackers and cheese, muffins, cinnamon buns and nuts. No hot food is offered and unfortunately very little substantial to eat.
Soft drinks, coffee and tea are offered but no alcoholic drinks.
Swedish newspapers and magazines are available from a bookshelf and there is also free wireless internet (the password can be found at the reception desk). Toilets are available in the lounge and there are several TVs.
Anything else not to miss?
There is a separate section of the lounge which has been named ‘The Plant House’ with panorama windows overlooking the runway. This section is a good choice for those looking for a quiet place to work or relax.
The lounge has a nice design with a modern interior and furniture. The staff are friendly and most facilities are there such as wireless internet, newspapers and restrooms. While the whole idea about Malmö Aviation (the Swedish airline running the lounge) is that you should spend as little time as possible at the airport by international standards (as the lounge is now also used by international airlines such as Brusssels Airlines and Finnair) especially the food and drinks offerings are a bit too limited. No alcoholic drinks are offered and very little substantial to eat. They should at least offer some sandwiches.
