Amex Lounge Entry 2

The American Express Lounge at Sydney International Airport is on the left hand side after going through customs. It takes approx. 5-10 minutes to walk there. I've always wanted to try this lounge and I had complimentary access as I hold the American Express Platinum Charge card.

You are allowed to guest one more person (above the ages of 17). Also kids are free as well when travelling with you.

I would say this lounge is perfect for a person travelling economy when going overseas. It's quite a basic lounge – but has pretty much what you want.

It is very new being open only a few months ago in 2014. It has a view of the airplanes jetting off and landing. As it was not busy – there were maybe a handful of people – it felt very relaxing as I sat and glanced at some complimentary travel magazines.

I was surprised there was quite a bit of variety for the food on offer. It offered sausage rolls, potato salad and 4 hot dishes. There were also toasted sandwiches, cheese spread, profiteroles, panna cotta, nuts, soft drink, alcohol and barista styled coffee.

I only ate a couple of small sausage rolls and potato salad as I was saving my stomach for the Qantas lounge, which I wanted to visit again.

Complimentary wifi was given to all guests in the lounge that is pretty much your standard these days for all lounges. That would be a bare minimum I would say.

Couple of Notes

Remember that by entering this lounge – they do not call out your flight – so make sure you are promptly at your gate before departure time.


Nice lounge – better that most of the US domestic and even international lounges I've been to. I'll be sure to take my family here next on our next flight overseas.
