After a fun few days in Greece (minus my backpacks being stolen), my son and I were set to depart Greece from Athens International Airport on Aegean Airlines.  Like all good travelers, we looked for the Priority Pass Athens airport lounge.  Since we have no status to speak of and we were flying economy class, we did not have access to the Aegean Airlines flagship lounge.  There are actually four different Priority Pass ATH lounges

  • Goldair Handling lounge – Hall A
  • Skyserv Aristotle Onassis Lounge – Hall A
  • Goldair Handling CIP lounge – Hall B
  • Skyserv Melina Markouri lounge – Hall B

Hall A is for international departures, and Hall B is for intra-Schengen departures, and you can not go between the two terminals without going through security (and probably not even then).  We were flying to Zurich, so had access to the two different Priority Pass Athens Terminal B lounges.  As it turns out, the Skyserv Aristotle Onassis Priority Pass Lounge was closed for renovation on the dates that I was traveling, so we were “stuck” in the Goldair Handling CIP lounge, which was just fine

Priority Pass Athens Goldair Lounge location

The Priority Pass Athens Goldair lounge is located next to the Aegean Airlines lounge, just outside of Gate B13

a storefront with glass doors

B13 is at just about the very end of the B Terminal, so leave some time to make it to your gate

Goldair CIP Lounge seating and amenities

The Goldair CIP lounge in Athens International Airport is a midsized lounge – there is comfortable seating for about 30-40 people, pictured below

We were there at about 7 a.m. local time and it was about half full

Priority Pass Athens Goldair Lounge food and drink

The food and drink at the Priority Pass Athens Goldair CIP lounge is pretty standard.  As mentioned, we were there at breakfast time, so they had yogurt, croissants, fruit as well as 3 hot options – mini omelets, a pumpkin soup and a spinach-y sandwich.

I had the omelets and the cold tomato / cheese sandwich, both of which were good.

I don’t drink, and if I did, I probably wouldn’t at 7 a.m. :-), but the Priority Pass Athens airport Goldair CIP lounge appeared to have a normal selection of alcohol

There are also a variety of soft drinks and other drinks

I wouldn’t plan a special visit to the Athens airport to visit the Goldair CIP lounge, but if you’re just transiting ATH, the Goldair CIP Terminal / Hall B Priority Pass lounge is more than adequate
