Where is it?

The Rendezvous Executive Lounge is located airside on the upper floor of the terminal building. The entrance is straight after the security control, in fact the entrance is even in the same room as the security control, to the left before entering the corridor leading to the transit hall and departure lounge. The lounge entrance is impossible to miss.

How do I get in?

This is the only lounge at the airport is used by all full-service airlines for business class/full flex passengers and top-tier status passengers. Among the airlines using the lounge are British Airways, Aer Lingus and Flybe.

It is also possible to enter using various lounge cards such as Priority Pass and to pay to enter.

What’s it like?

The lounge is small with seating for no more than about 30 guests. The entrance and the reception desk are in one corner of the lounge, next to the buffet area, while there is a separate exit on the opposite side of the lounge leading to the transit hall.

The reception desk

For a small airport the interior is quite nice in brown, black and dark wood and with design details in metal and pink. The seating is a mix of sofas, armchairs and barstools.

Food and drinks

The self-service area is quite spacious offering various snacks and drinks. The snacks selection includes bread rolls, yoghurt, croissants, pastries, cookies, crisps and nuts but not much in terms of proper food.

Final impression

It may not be the most spectacular of lounges but for a small lounge at a small regional airport the lounge is not bad at all. Reasonable selection of snacks and drinks, modern interior, friendly staff and a nice apron view.
