This will be a fairly short review since the lounge is a bit on the small side. Catania airport is actually a pretty decent sized airport. It’s something of a modern airport, with floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s been fairly crowded the handful of times I’ve flown through it. Unless you have elite status with the airline you’re traveling on, you should definitely get to the airport early to deal with the lines. The airport itself is only about 20 gates or so, and is served by a host of airlines on a seasonal basis.
The SAC VIP Airport lounge is located a the far left end of the airport once you pass through security. A short flight of stairs or an elevator will get you to the lounge.
Once inside, there’s only seating for about 25 people as well as a small business area. The lounge has passable Wifi.
The food and drink options are fairly limited. There’s a coffee machine and a refrigerator lightly stocked bottled waters, juice and Coke. The food options are pretty minimal as well, pre-packaged muffins and pastry.
Probably the best thing the lounge has going for it is a view of the runway to watch planes land and take-off.
The Final Two Pennies
Given that the airport has been pretty full each time we’ve flown through it, a lounge isn’t the worst thing in the world to have access to. That being said, I’d be hard pressed to pay for access to the SAC VIP Lounge if your Priority Pass membership didn’t cover it for free.
