The Al Ghazal Lounge at Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH) Terminal 2, is one of the oldest and highly ranked premium airport lounges in the world. Sadly, the Al Ghazal Lounge closed its doors for operations permanently.
Al Ghazal Lounge closed at AUH T2
From the Priority Pass Lounge updates, this lounge was listed as closed permanently on 12th April 2019.
It is no longer visible on Priority Pass or Lounge Buddy. It is also not available on Abu Dhabi Airport’s official website. The official page of Al Ghazal Lounge on AUH used to be this, but my guess is that it will soon be taken down.
This lounge was managed by the Plaza Premium Lounges. Note, if you visit a lot of Plaza Premium Lounges, don’t forget to sign up for Arrture, a loyalty program that gives you free lounge visits on your (already free) lounge visits. Read more on Arrture from from Lucky at OMAAT.
Other Lounges on Abu Dhabi Airport
There are other airport lounges at Abu Dhabi Airport on Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, VIP Terminal and at the Arrivals Hall.
- Al Reem Lounge (Review by The Points Habibi)
- Al Dhabi Lounge (Review by The Points Habibi)
- Etihad Premium Lounge
But only 3 of these lounges – Al Reem Lounge and Al Dhabi Lounge, and the Diamond Lounge are accessible using Priority Pass and other lounge access programs. I wrote a detailed review of 2 of these lounges during my lounge hopping trip a few months ago.
It’s sad to see a an airport lounge bite the dust on any airport in general. It reduces the lounge options for frequent flyers. And now, as of April 2019, there are no airport lounges on AUH Terminal 2. I hope that this area of the lounge in T2 gets a facelift and comes back as a new lounge in the future.
