Accessing BLR Plaza Premium Lounge as SkyTeam Elite+

As a SkyTeam Elite Plus, I am wondering if I get access to the Plaza Premium Lounge in BLR. The lounge access policy on the SkyTeam Lounge Finder site seems to indicate that I might have access but the Saudia site states I will need to be flying Saudia metal. I am flying KL metal.

KLM will issue you a lounge voucher. The BLR lounges have been taken over by TfS from PP, but they are refurbishing the old lounges, so things are rather dire till April: Plaza Premium lounges at BLR airport closed

Good to know thanks! Will the KLM voucher be for the other lounge or is it for future use?

Got it thanks! Should I ask for the access pass at check-in or just walk up to the lounge like I usually would? Thanks! I am finding out new things about Indian airports that make them hard to navigate. Just want to be extra sure to make my experience smooth.

Since you have to collect a printed boarding pass for all international departures ex India, you will get the lounge pass at the same time.

Make sure you collect it at the check-in counter when you're checking in.

make sure you hold on to the lounge pass & present it to the lounge attendant....one time i misplaced the pass on my way to the lounge....i probably left it at security....i had to wait 15 minutes while they verified if i could access the lounge....
