Does anyone know what airline lounges are in Amman's Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) and Beirut's Rafic Hariri International Airport (RHIA)?

I know Amman has the Royal Jordanian Petra and Jerash lounges and Beirut has the large MEA Cedar Lounge.

Do these airports have any other lounges?

Regards

On a side note, does anyone know what CIP in CIP Lounge stands for?

CIP = Commercial Important Passenger (??, just a wild guess)

BA! I thought you knew EVERYTHING about BEY.

I have been to the MEA lounge at BEY many times. If you take the escalator up from passport control and turn LEFT the MEA lounge is there.

However, if you turn RIGHT there is one or two lounges on the other side. I'm sure one of them is SV's.

I can only remember one lounge at AMM.

BA,

There is a total of 4 lounges in BEY airport.

- The Cedar Lounge, (belongs to MEA) used by MEA's & AF's customers.
- The Al Fursan lounge, belongs (and used) by Saudia.
- a Business lounge, used by the customers of the airlines assisted in BEY by the Airport Assistance Company (LAT)

The 4th and last one is not used by airlines, and is reserved for Gov. Officials, Ministers, Head of States/Gov. etc...

You thought wrong. Big grin

I also visited the MEA lounge. I just was wondering about the others.  Smile

The South Terminal has the Petra Lounge and the North Terminal has the Jerash Lounge, both operated by Royal Jordanian and they are much smaller than MEA's huge Cedar Lounge.

I can't recall any other lounge space in QAIA, so I assume that's probably it.

Lufthansa and many other airlines use it as well.

Is it called Al Fursan lounge or is it called Golden Lounge? Because BEY is one of SV's Golden Service routes and Golden Service routes have an upgraded lounge called "Golden Lounge".

Ah yes, I think I remember this one. It is a pretty bad lounge, right?

Where is this one located? I assume it will be closed down or converted some how since the new General Aviation Terminal has been opened. It has room for 8 VIP lounges!

Actually, the airlines that have an agreement with MEA and/or are assisted by MEA in BEY (and not by LAT)

It is called "Al Fursan" lounge (according to my friends working at BEY Airport ...)

....mmm Right !  Wink

Thanks for the info FlySSC. Any idea why SV has its own lounge in BEY?

Also, where is the government VIP lounge located?

Regards

FlySSC,

Not to bring up the SV lounge issue again, but according to this trip report, it's called the Golden Lounge:
http://www.airlinequality.com/main/review_243.htm

Golden Service is offered from Saudi Arabian Airlines' hubs in Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dammam to the following destinations:

Europe:
London
Paris
Geneva
Frankfurt
Rome
Milan
Athens

United States:
New York
Washington

Middle East:
Dubai
Beirut

Golden Service routes supposidly have enhanced service and an upgraded lounge called the Golden Lounge. Regular SV destinations have the Al Fursan Lounge.

Maybe this has changed recently though. I have no idea.

Regards
