The Turkish Airlines Lounge Bangkok is one of the many Priority Pass options available at the airport. Usually, airline branded lounges offer a better experience, so I was looking forward to seeing whether or not the Turkish Airlines Lounge would offer a similar standard to the Cathay Pacific or Oman Air Lounges.

Location and Access of the Turkish Airlines Lounge Bangkok

The Turkish Airlines lounge Bangkok is located in Concourse D. As with any lounge in Bangkok airport, it can be a little challenging to find. Head to level 3, and the lounge is close to gate D8.

You can access the lounge if you’re travelling on a Star Alliance flight in Business or First, or if you have a Star Alliance Gold card. Alternatively, access is also granted through Priority Pass.

The lounge is open 24 hours per day, so you can use it for any international flight.

Turkish Airlines Lounge Bangkok Space and Interior

The Turkish Airlines lounge Bangkok is essentially a large rectangle. There is a bar area in the middle of the lounge, a small buffet, and different types of seating. Although the space is fairly modern, I wasn’t a huge fan of the design. When compared to other options in Bangkok, it feels slightly sterile.

Perhaps my experience was influenced by the time of day I was visiting. Although the lounge does have windows, and I imagine it feels much brighter during daylight hours, at 5am in the morning it felt a little dark and miserable. Ultimately, it feels like the space doesn’t really reach its potential.

This said, during our visit the lounge was around 20% full. This meant there were a range of different seating options available. There’s also a small business area if you need to get work done.

Food and Drinks at the Turkish Airlines Lounge Bangkok

I thought that the food and drinks options at the Turkish Airliens lounge Bangkok were fairly disappointing. There is a staffed bar, however, it largely offers lower tier options. There was a prosecco available, but don’t expect to find anything like a real champagne. Considering Turkish has a fairly good reputation, I was expecting a slightly higher quality. I do wonder whether the selection is much more basic because entry is possible with Priority Pass. But this is also the case for the Oman Air lounge, where the general quality is much higher.

Food was similarly disappointing. Everything was of a fairly poor quality, and in the end, I didn’t find anything I wanted to try. If you’re flying with Turkish, I’d recommend wating until you’re onboard to eat. If you’re just accessing the lounge through Priority Pass, I’d recommend heading to the Oman Air lounge instead if you’re hungry.


Overall, I found the Turkish Airlines lounge Bangkok to be disappointing. Despite being an airline lounge, this felt much more like a generic contract lounge. Considering the number of options available at Bangkok Airport, I wouldn’t rush back to try out this lounge again. Both the food and drinks could be improved, and while the space certainly didn’t feel crowded during our visit, there are much nicer places to wait for your flight. I’d certainly be disappointed if I was flying with Turkish having purchased a business class ticket.
