The Air France-KLM Lounge at Frankfurt Airport Terminal 2 is located in Concourse D, in the Schengen zone, after passport control and security, a stone’s throw away from Air France and KLM’s departure gates. The club serves primarily premium passengers flying to Paris, Amsterdam, and Gran Canaria on Air France and KLM, though holders of various credit and membership cards such as Priority Pass, DragonPass, Diners Club are also welcome.
At Frankfurt airport, all passengers with a same-day boarding pass have access to all terminals, though travelers departing from Terminal 1 will not be able to go through the automatic gates at Terminal 2. Should you wish to visit the Air France Lounge when flying from Terminal 1, simply inquire with a security agent.
Air France Lounge FRA design
Spacious and luminous, the Air France-KLM Lounge at Frankfurt Airport is a treat ahead of a short flight, especially in comparison with Lufthansa’s subterranean digs at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.
Design-wise, however, the club is overdue for an upgrade. The space still sports the airline’s vintage décor from the early 2000s. The soulless ensemble, lit by neon bulbs and dominated by fading yellow and beige hues, lacks color and vibrancy despite large floor-to-ceiling windows. The carpet and furniture are both in dire need of a refresh.
Glamorous Air France posters add a slight touch of color, though it’s unfortunate that the airline didn’t preserve vintage prints from its storied legacy.
Designed before the era of open-space concepts, the Air France lounge is somewhat heavily partitioned. Near the lobby is a seating area with individual seats, side consoles, and large coffee tables. Walking further inside, guests will find couch-style seats, a few secluded nooks, and a business center and quiet work zone with tabletop seating. Near the windows are the dining and buffet area, as well as communal work tables. A few seats have dividers that add a touch of privacy.
The distribution of power outlets is inconsistent. Power can be found primarily in the seating area near the reception desk, and in the business zone. The larger seating and dining area has virtually no plugs, and oddly, the communal tables and counter-style seats also lack outlets despite being otherwise ideally suited for laptops.
Speaking of oddities, the seats near the window face inwards, though perhaps that’s because the lounge overlooks a vehicle security checkpoint: sadly, there is not a plane in sight.
Air France Lounge FRA amenities
It’s difficult to expect much ahead of a quick flight to France or the Netherlands, and the Air France-KLM Lounge at Frankfurt airport offers just the essentials.
Patrons will find a selection of snacks, breakfast pastries, fruit salad, fresh fruit, and various treats (with red, white, and blue napkins for a French touch) along with an array of self-serve beverages: espresso, wine, Champagne, as well as liquor and spirits.
The selection is basic (Priority Pass members who want a hot meal may prefer to visit the Priority Lounge or primeclass Lounge in Concourse E) though the Champagne and choice of syrups for a morning pick-me-up latte are nice touches.
Air France does not provide access to a private Wi-Fi access point, though the airport’s network is free, fast, and reliable. For offline entertainment, guests will find a selection of French and international newspapers and magazines.
There is one notable miss: despite occupying a prime piece of real estate, the Air France-KLM Lounge lacks a bathroom, and public facilities in the terminal are located too far away for comfort.
Air France Lounge FRA bottom line
The Air France-KLM Lounge at Frankfurt airport is spacious, luminous, relatively comfortable, and features a simple but enjoyable wine and snack selection.
The club is overdue for a remodel—at the very least, the airline could replace the carpet and refresh the furniture—and it lacks essentials such as a bathroom and a dedicated Wi-Fi access point. But what luxuries can one reasonably expect ahead of a one-hour hop to Paris or Amsterdam? The Air France-KLM Lounge does the job, and unlike other clubs, it has survived the pandemic despite a year-long closure of Terminal 2.
Passengers departing from Terminal 1 should allow at least 45 minutes to reach their gate. There is no direct airside connection between Terminal 2 and Terminal 1, so all passengers are required to go through passport control, take the train, and then re-clear security.
