Lounge Review: Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG
The Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG is the only Priority Pass Lounge in Terminal 2D. While it’s far from being a great lounge, it’s an alright place to hang out before your departure. In this review, we’ll explain what you need to know about the lounge!
Terminal 2D is mainly a low-cost terminal as it’s mainly used by EasyJet. However, there are a few other airlines departing from this terminal, too. Included in those are Austrian Airlines, Czech Airlines and Ukraine International Airlines, for example.
The lounge can be found right by the passport control. Thus, you have to pass the country, walk by all Schengen gates and then right before getting into the passport control, you have to turn right.
Seating in the Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG
The Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG is surprisingly large and comes with various different seating areas. Most areas of the lounge feature traditional lounge seating with black leather armchairs.
However, the lounge has somewhat interesting room dividers, which double as seating. This concept is quite nice as there are various smaller and more private areas throughout the lounge with that layout.
Further seating can be found right by the buffet, where dining tables with two chairs each are dominating.
Then closer to the entrance of the lounge, there’s a selection of various different seating options, ranging from high-top seating to traditional lounge chairs.
All in all, the lounge is spacious, modern and feels relatively private. Thus, it’s actually a nice place to hang out and while it lacks views, it’s at least bright due to its atrium position in the terminal.
Buffet of the Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG
The buffet of the Sheltair Lounge Paris is one of its weakest spots. For breakfast, the selection consists of a few pastries, including croissants.
Then there’s a fride with one kind of cheese and cold cuts, plus some yogurt. That’s about it.
For lunch time and in the afternoon, a fruit salad is being added. Other than that, the offerings look completely similar.
The only real upside seems to be the alcohol selection, which consists of beers, wines and even several spirits.
Soft drinks, water, juices and a coffee machine are available, too.
Entertainment in the Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG
As it’s the norm for airport lounges in Europe, the entertainment offerings are good, but not outstanding. For example, the lounge has a few little TV areas.
Then there’s a good selection of magazines and newspapers in various languages. Furthermore, WiFi is available troughout the lounge and works quite well.
I couldn’t find a proper business area, but other than that I thought that the entertainment options are good enough.
Overall impressions of the Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG
The Sheltair Lounge Paris CDG ticks all the boxes when it comes to a Priority Pass. It’s located airside, it has plenty of seating, a modern design and nice entertainment options. This makes the lounge an alright choice to spend a few minutes or even an hour or two before departure. Just don’t expect real food offerings as the few snacks offered are really mediocre. Other than that, the lounge is definitely a better spot to hang out than the terminal.
