oneworld Lounge Unveiled In Seoul
The oneworld Alliance has unveiled its first ever fully branded dedicated airport lounge in Seoul, breaking new ground in premium benefits and luxury air travel. The new oneworld lounge comes as the airline alliance prepares to celebrate its landmark 25th anniversary later this year.
Located in Terminal 1 at Incheon International Airport, the spacious new oneworld lounge occupies 555 square metres. Featuring a contemporary new setting for up to 148 customers, the new lounge is no more than a 10 minute walk from the furthest oneworld airlines’ departure gates.
Gerhard Girkinger, oneworld Vice President, Customer Experience, Delivery and Membership, said that “with oneworld celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2024, we are incredibly proud to be opening the very first oneworld branded lounge experience for our member airlines’ customers.”
“The new oneworld lounge is an exciting next step in our vision to making travel bright. Together with ASPIRE, we have combined refined fixtures and finishes, digital technologies, and warm and ergonomic settings to create smart and memorable experiences.”
“Our new Incheon lounge resets the benchmark for contemporary travel and will serve as the blueprint for future oneworld lounges in select airports around the world.”
The lounge is open between 7:30am and 11:45pm daily, apart from Monday and Saturday when it opens earlier at 4:30am. To be eligible to enter the lounge you must be a oneworld Emerald or Sapphire customer departing from Seoul on oneworld flights, or a First or Business Class customer travelling with oneworld member airlines.

The lounge features a wide choice of zones and comfortable seating areas. These range from relaxing, private or more sociable spaces in which you can unwind, work or dine.
The features reflect its South Korea location in a modern and original lounge experience. Featuring the alliance’s bold Travel Bright branding, the design offers subtle nods to South Korean culture, capturing the colourful Lantern Festival with glass art and the ‘Gat’ hat in the welcoming bar. This shows a mix of traditional and contemporary aesthetics.
Alliance members can continue to access more than 600 airport lounges around the world via their oneworld Priority Tier Benefits. To learn more about the airline alliance, click here.
