The Lufthansa Business Lounge in the non-Schengen area serves Lufthansa and Star Alliance Business class passengers traveling beyond Europe’s Schengen zone. Star Alliance Gold members enjoy access to the adjacent and slightly better appointed Senator Lounge.
Lufthansa Business Lounge MUC design
The Lufthansa Business Lounge at Munich airport’s Terminal 2 Satellite in the non-Schengen zone bears a striking resemblance with the airline’s latest lounges worldwide, but with a number of notable enhancements, and a welcome focus on privacy.
The floor layout aims at maximizing natural light in the seating areas. The business center and the TV room are located immediately behind the reception desk, with the seating and dining zones in the rear, against a large floor to ceiling window. The lounge boasts grand views of the tarmac.
The décor emphasizes neutral and Earth tones, with elegant hardwood floors, wood panels, and LED lighting throughout.
The main seating area emphasizes privacy, with—ugly, but functional—dividers between rows of seats, as well as side tables at every seat. The dining area features booths as well as traditional dining table. The layout hits the right balance between space efficiency and privacy. Power outlets are located at every seat in the seating area—mostly of the western-European type, but some universal plus can be found too—although they’re sorely lacking in the dining room.
There are also two intimate booths embedded inside the wall across the TV room, providing a few patrons with an even more private environment.
The focal point of the design is the gorgeous bar flanking the window. Somewhat unconventional for a Lufthansa lounge, it boasts a back lit electric blue counter, swanky light fixtures, and a swanky display of bottles with the tarmac as the backdrop.
Overall, the new Lufthansa Business Lounge in non-Schengen zone of the new satellite terminal is a major upgrade over the Business Lounge in the main terminal by gate H24 which is dark, cavernous, and perpetually crowded.
