The British Airways Lounge at Johannesburg airport was remodeled late 2019. The former separate Club and First lounges were combined into a single 86,00 square foot (880 square meter) space, which can accommodate close to 250 guests.
The design bears the DNA of British Airways’ latest lineage of lounges, with a striking resemblance to the airline’s San Francisco club. The space boasts hardwood floors, Earth tones, dim lighting, and smooth curves—a resolutely conservative but elegant ensemble.
Seating options include traditional lounge chairs with side consoles, booths, and tabletop seating. Power outlets are available at most seats.
The buffet spread includes seasonal salads, cold cuts, mezze, cheese, and hot dishes including Cape Malay curry. Wines, beer, and spirits are available, along with soft drinks and espresso.
First Class passengers benefit from an elegantly-furnished dedicated area with a-la-carte dining and wine pairings.
You may have access to British Airways Lounge as a premium customer of one of the following airlines, or as an elite member of their frequent flyer program. Check the Access rules tab for more details.
