The Mumbai Airport Terminal 1 has been in a flux for a while now. They have seen GoAir move to Terminal 1B from 1A. With the move of Air India to Terminal 2 followed by the move of Jet Airways as well, all the full-service airlines had gone away from Terminal 1. So there was no case for a good Mumbai Airport Lounge at this terminal.
Hence, the Jet Airways lounge in 1 reverted to being a generic Loyalty Lounge accessible via Priority Pass and then there is the Good Times Bar which is only accessible for some Visa and Amex Card holders. However, the only lounge available in Terminal 1C, the aerobridge section, the only lounge that existed, Carnation Lounge, shut down earlier this year. Last week, we reported that the new lounge was going to open sometime soon.
The good news is, it is already open now. I arrived at Terminal 1 yesterday on my way back from Mangalore, and I noticed this.
This lounge would be accessible for those who are travelling from Terminal 1C, which is the aerobridges at Terminal 1 Mumbai Airport. Which credit cards will allow access is yet to be known since I haven’t visited the lounge yet, but they are running an opening offer just now where the lounge and buffet are only going to cost INR 660! It is a good deal I say for a fine meal at Mumbai Airport given the food and presentation is very good!
Safe travels everyone. And I look forward to hearing more about this lounge from anyone who is travelling with them in the next few days!
