It's about to get a lot easier to lounge in comfort if you've booked an upcoming flight with Bangkok Airways. Asia's favorite boutique airline already offers organic cuisine, comfortable seats and other perks during flights. However, it's what happens while you're down on the ground that might make you really fall in love with this airline.

The big reason why so many people love to fly with Bangkok Airways is that the popular airline offers universal lounge access for all passengers. That means that you'll be free to simply walk into a lounge and take advantage of some nice perks without ever whipping out your wallet. The lounge policy at Bangkok Airways just might be the most generous one in the airline industry.

How To Enjoy Free Lounge Access When You Fly With Bangkok Airways

Any passenger with a boarding pass from Bangkok Airways is free to visit one of the airline's Boutique Lounges on the same day as their flight. What can you look forward to once you pass through the doors to enter a Bangkok Airways lounge? Here's a quick rundown of the perks offered inside:

  • Free snacks
  • Free hot and cold beverages
  • Televisions
  • Newspapers and magazines
  • Free Internet access
  • Comfortable seating
  • Special areas for kids
  • Computer terminals

Boutique Lounges from Bangkok Airways are pretty basic and simple. They offer a nice break from simply hanging out inside the airport while waiting for connecting flights. You're likely to appreciate the chance to stop and enjoy a snack or drink in a place that's away from the crowds at the airport for a little while. The atmosphere inside these lounges mirrors the same customer-oriented commitment that the entire Bangkok Airways experience offers to travelers.

Upgrading To A Better Lounge Experience When You Fly With Bangkok Airways

The only downside to the universal lounge access offered by Bangkok Airways is that there is the possibility for lounges to get pretty crowded if you're visiting during peak travel times.

There is the option to join the airline's FlyerBonus loyalty program to enjoy complimentary access to its Blue Ribbon Club locations if you'd prefer to stay in a separate lounge area with restricted access. Though, you will have to first be a Premier member to enjoy this amazing perk. Premier members can also bring along one guest for free when visiting Blue Ribbon Club lounges.

Of course, Blue Ribbon Club Lounges offer more extravagant settings and more perks than Boutique Lounges. Here are some of the things you can look forward to when you enter one:

  • Personalized service
  • Hot meals
  • Personal shower rooms
  • Library rooms and meeting rooms

The fact that you get free access to some pretty impressive lounges every time you fly with Bangkok Airways, no matter which class you fly in, should be a good enough reason to sign up for FlyerBonus membership if you routinely fly to or from Southeast Asia for business or personal reasons.
