Airport Lounge Opening Alert: The Club Comes to CVG

Posted in At the Terminal, Domestic US

The Age of the Democratized Lounge is upon us. While the legacy carriers and major airline alliances still dominate the airport lounge world, newer open-to-all lounges are spreading everywhere. Instead of buying a business/first class ticket or holding status that allows for lounge entry, this new class of lounges is available to anyone who wants to use them for a fixed price (and yes, most lounges operated by the big guys offer day passes, too, but they’re more expensive than these non-affiliated lounges). You may have read my previous story on the The Club at PHX, but now you can enjoy The Club at CVG, a new lounge from Airport Lounge Development, Inc.

Located in Concourse A between gates A8 and A10, travelers to CVG (serving Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky) can relax a little easier with the new 1,900 sq.ft. club offering wifi, snacks, and beverages (liquor’s included, too) for $35 a person. The club also welcomes members of Priority Pass, Priority Pass Select and Lounge Club, so if you’ve got a Chase Ink card, you can probably get in for free (assuming you haven’t already used your two free lounge entries for the year).

As far as the menu goes, expect:

·         Light snacks (granola bars, fresh fruit, yogurt, assorted cookies, cheese and crackers, assorted chips, hummus)

·         Assorted soft drinks and bottled waters

·         Coffee/Tea

·         Assorted Juices

·         Assorted selection of local and international bottled beers

·         Wines

·         Premium spirits
