Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf is one of many of these areas on German airports. These areas may exclusively entered by Air Berlin customers buying tickets in higher booking classes or being a frequent traveler. The Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf offers views of the tarmac, comfortable seating and complimentary newspapers and drinks.
Düsseldorf Airport is one of the hubs of Air Berlin. While frequent flyers may also use the Hugo Junkers Lounge Düsseldorf, the Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf is a very good addition.
Located right at the gates, passengers may hop out of the Exclusive Waiting Area into the plane in just one minute.
There are comfortable leather chairs and tables which are in a good position for either reading, working or eating a snack.
At the same time, there is no choice of different seating arrangements and space is limited. Due to that, seating in the Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf is not comparable to what most lounges offer. Yet, there’s a nice view of the tarmac.
There are many reasons why the Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf is not comparable with a normal lounge. One reason is the absence of any food. Only cold drinks (soft drinks and water) as well as hot drinks (coffee, tea, chocolate) are available.
All drinks are complimentary and usually good for takeaway, too. Sadly, there are not even snacks like nuts available. If you want to eat something, you either have to bring it with you into the area or get out and buy something in the public areas.
The entertainment options in the Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf are comparable to what most lounges offer. There’s a choice of several newspapers (limited to German ones), a television showing news and complimentary Wi-Fi which is fast and reliable. We never had problems to get the newspaper of our choice, but the selection will definitely be disappointing for international travelers.
It would be wrong to compare the Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf with lounges like the Hugo Junkers Lounge Düsseldorf. At first, the Waiting Area is way smaller and so offers only limited space for some passengers. Second, there’s neither service nor food.
Nevertheless, we’d recommend to use the Exclusive Waiting Area Düsseldorf if you got access as you can leave the area and board your plane literally in seconds. A real plus in comfort compared to most airport lounges!
