ANA Lounge is the only Priority Pass lounge in Porto Airport. To avoid confusion, ANA Aeroportos de Portugal is the airport authority of Portugal and has nothing to do with Japan’s All Nippon Airways (also ANA).

This lounge accepts walk-ins but you can also purchase your pass directly on their website for EUR 24.83 ($37). Not sure why you would want to that, considering how little it has to offer.

There is sufficient seating throughout my time here. There is a partitioned area at the corner of the lounge that offers a little more privacy.

The food being offered are mainly sandwiches and a variety of fried croquettes that have turned cold. If you have eaten fried food that have turned cold before, you will know that they do not taste good. The coffee machine is not easy to use. I see a lot of guests trying to figure it out. For coffee, you will need to insert a capsule that can be found in one of the small drawers below before dispensing. There were no staff around to help out the struggling guests while I was there. If it matters, I only see paper cups here.

To go to the toilet, you will need to walk out of lounge, past the front desk and line of guests checking in.

Conclusion

I like the long “outdoor” seating area but the croquettes were almost disgusting. I also disliked walking out of the lounge to go to the toilet.

  1. I’m being pedantic but I think you mean aviation authority, not airport authority. CAAS is our aviation authority, CAG is the closest to an airport authority we have.
