OR Tambo International
Airport Premium Lounges

Premium Lounges offer a haven for travellers during their journey. Peace and quiet, comfortable furnishings and personal service are provided away from the often crowded areas in the standard terminal lounge areas.

In addition to several airline only premium lounges, Johannesburg - OR Tambo International Airport hosts 6 other Premium Lounges that can be accessed regardless of airline or ticket class. They can be booked in advance or you can pay on entry.

There are now 6 Premium Lounges available, 2 in the Domestic Terminal and 4 in the International Terminal. All offer complimentary food and beverages and, along with other facilities, some of the lounges offer a smoking area for guests.

The new Ses'Fikile Premium Lounge is the first, and only lounge in South Africa, to be opened in International Arrivals. This should prove to be a welcome choice for passengers in transit through the airport.
All the Premium Lounges that are available to all passengers are listed below along with lounge facilities, opening times, locations in the terminal, conditions of entry and images of each Premium Lounge:
