How to access Asiana Business Lounge (Central)?

I visited this lounge prior to my Cathay Pacific Economy Class flight from Seoul to Singapore (via Hong Kong), during my Jeju-Seoul 2023 trip.

Passengers departing in Business or First Class with a oneworld or Star Alliance airline can access this lounge.

Oneworld Sapphire/Emerald and Star Alliance Gold members can also gain complimentary access (+1 guest) to the lounge, regardless of class of travel.

Additional note: There are 3 Asiana Business lounges in Terminal 1, East, Central and West.

General areas

The lounge is bright and airy with a tall ceiling and large windows overlooking the apron.

There’s a fair mix of high-privacy booths, dining tables and sofas for guests to hang out in.

Food & Drinks

Guests can help themselves to a very small selection of hot dishes and snacks from the buffet.

Unfortunately, food selection was small and quality wasn’t good. That’s a shame, as this is the default lounge for most airlines departing Incheon.

Bottom line

Asiana Lounge (Central) can be accessed by selected passengers flying with oneworld or Star Alliance airlines and is a great place to relax in, with some drinks, before the flight.

However, considering the fact that this lounge is the only option for most premium passengers, the food options are disappointing.
