10 Airline Lounges in Naia and How You Can Access Them

There are just a handful of airline lounges in NAIA. Each with a different way for people to access them. Some of them are exclusive to specific airlines and mileage members, while others can be accessed by anyone with a fee.

We have compiled a list of 10 airline lounges that we are familiar with and how people can access them! Continue on the article to learn more! Bear in mind that this list is in no particular order.

Club Manila Lounge

One of the more popular lounges in Terminal 1, the Club Manila Lounge is a decent lounge to stay in. They barely have any amenities. Apart from the subpar shower room, there’s not a lot of things that will make people come back for more. However, because of its accessibility, this is where a lot of people go to when they have time in Terminal 1.

We’ve reviewed this lounge twice before.

Closing Thoughts

Resting in an airline lounge is much more relaxing than waiting at a boarding area. With free food, comfortable chairs, and even alcohol at the ready, the experience is more than enough to justify the cost (if any) and that’s assuming you don’t have complimentary access because of your credit card!
