When starting my journey at Incheon International Airport, I always make it a point to visit the airport lounge. Enjoying a hearty meal and a beer at the lounge sets the tone for a pleasant trip. There are several credit cards that grant access to domestic lounges, and I’ve found them to be quite handy. Today, I’ll introduce the Sky Hub Lounge, which I accessed using my complimentary credit card. If you don’t have a discount credit card or need an entry pass for other members traveling with you, I’ll also share how to purchase them at a lower price than the regular rate.

There are three Sky Hub Lounges in Incheon International Airport Terminal 1, with one located in the concourse. If your departure gate is in the concourse, you can use the nearby lounge for a relaxed wait. The West Wing lounge operates 24 hours, making it convenient for early morning flights. I visited the West Wing Sky Hub Lounge during the weekday.

Discounted Lounge Tickets

Here is a way to access the lounge I mentioned earlier at a more affordable price. This can be particularly useful if you have a long wait at the airport or if you are traveling with a group and some members do not have an eligible card for lounge access. Unfortunately, there are no discounts available for children’s admission tickets.

You can purchase the tickets for approximately $24 through the link below. However, please note that there is a usage limit of 3 hours.

Food Corner / Buffet

The most important part of the lounge experience is the food corner. Note that during the 24-hour operation, only light snacks and drinks are available during the night hours.

1) Alcoholic Beverages / Drinks

There is a machine for cold draft beer and a selection of red and white wines. Additionally, whiskey is available, allowing you to make a simple highball. There’s also a soda machine, coffee machine, and a variety of juices, including zero-calorie options.

2) Hot Dishes / Korean Cuisine

Hot dishes include pasta and fried foods. Korean options such as bulgogi and bibimbap are also available.

3) Cup Noodles

A variety of cup noodles like Shin Ramyun, Tempura Udon, and Chapagetti are provided. A cup of noodles is a must-have when visiting the lounge.

4) Salads, Fruits, Bread, and Desserts

A selection of salads, fruits, bread, cereals, nuts, and snacks is available. These go well with alcoholic beverages.

This has been an introduction to the Sky Hub Lounge at Incheon International Airport Terminal 1. Compared to the Matina Lounge in the same terminal, the food selection was a bit lacking. Therefore, if food is your priority, I recommend the Matina Lounge. However, the Sky Hub Lounge is less crowded, making it a suitable place for a quiet time or getting some work done.
