SAS Scandinavian Airlines Gold Lounge, Copenhagen Kastrup: Pleasant and slight catering upgrade

It was unhoped-for, given my short connection time in Copenhagen, but I was still able to spend some time in the SAS lounge!

As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:

Today’s itinerary

Connection process

Despite the initially short connection and the 25-minute delay, connections in Copenhagen are like a walk in the park!

After disembarking from my flight directly in the departure lounge (USA are considered a secure origin by the Schengen area), I proceeded through the ultra-fast immigration formalities and found myself in the Schengen zone, with the lounge directly in front of me.

Location and welcome

The lounge is located right in the heart of the Schengen boarding areas, opposite passport control and adjacent to the Fast Track dedicated to Star Alliance Gold passengers.

The welcome was courteous. Two lounges coexist in the same place, one for Business passengers, the other for Star Alliance Gold passengers.

I scanned my boarding pass for the Gold lounge and entered.

Lounge design

The design of the lounge hadn’t changed since my last visit.

Just past the gate is a very quiet lounging area, which I particularly like and in which I settled for my short stay.

The rest of the lounge is on the mezzanine, with a large dining area and a bright lounging area.

Catering

The catering offer had improved slightly since my last visit, with hot scrambled eggs complementing the traditional continental offering.

Real bottles of wine had replaced the ugly taffy machines, and a barista made hot drinks on demand.

Bottom line

A short but pleasant stay. We’ll be back!
