New A3 lounge - ATH, extra-Schengen

Aegean just showed a sneak peak of a new A3 lounge:

Doesn't look like ATH to me, but I could be wrong. Maybe HER?

I think I can see a glimpse of sea through the windows in the background, that's why I thought it may not be ATH. But it could also be my eyes doing tricks
The largest airport with a sea-view is HER I think.

Looks great, if I'm not mistaken it's modeled on the one at SKG.

The old lounge was great when it opened but now far too small for the numbers using it even on A3 services, let alone *A partners.

Yes all A3 lounges getting the SKG look . The ATH one was delayed due to C-19 but great to see it finally opened . Having used the SKG lounge its a great refresh reflecting the new brand .

It is indeed a very nice lounge! Looking forward to (hopefully!) visiting it again for a few minutes in June on my 45-minute connection.

It wishes to have hot food, instead of only pastry and bread.

Turns out it is Athens Extra-Schengen, a bigger lounge as the old one was way too small.
