Hey guys,

Anyone already tried the new TAP Premium Lounge in Lisbon that was scheduled to open today (7th July)?

Im not sure, but previously it was situated on the 6th floor, close to ANA Lounge.

From what I read they only refurbished the lounge, so it should be on the same place as before.

A new lounge? Nice!

Is this the TAP Premium Lounge or the Blue Lounge?

The place where it existed a few years ago is now a security screening area, so the only place where it could exist is next to the new ANA lounge.

However, I don't see any announcements anywhere. Where are you getting the info from?

I'm also flying on TP on Tuesday and would be interested in checking it out if it's open.

TP's site doesn't say anything about the re-opening.

Edit: here's the story in PT with some pics

I'll get there an hour early to check it out Tuesday and will post back. I hope they bring back my favorite smoked salmon sandwiches. If the lounge is good, this will definitely be a downgrade for me as I'll have a reason to get to the airport earlier and literally lose sleep over this :P

Wow, those photos look great, considering that TAP was much derided in the past for having a poor lounge. The new lounge looks super stylish.

Please take photos (esp. of the food selections) when you visit Tuesday!

Agreed! I have my first ever flight with TP next Saturday, and I'm super-excited to try out this new lounge. Can't wait to read more first-hand reports.

My source was Jornal de Negocios, I've tried to find it on TAP website but couldnt, so if the lounge is really already open as the news state, they did an amazing marketing effort to keep customers away...

TP had an awesome lounge, though the space was a bit small, before they closed it and moved into the ANA lunge.

Earlier this week I didn't see any signs of it when going to/from the ANA lounge, which is currently operating at reduced capacity, with about half of the square footage it had a couple years ago. Perhaps that space, which would be on the far right as you enter the ANA lounge, is being converted into a new TAP lounge.

​​​​​​ Who derided it??? 😱
it was a stylish space, well supplied with food and drink. They even gave you bags to haul away magazines and papers (and, shamefully, in my case: the odd couple of pasteis de nata )
The very definite drawbacks were size - it could get very crowded; it was an internal space - no windows; and the showers, were I think, in the singular.

The current ANA facility also suffers from space, and those f*Ing mirrors I keep walking into.

Good to know that I'm not the only one who does a double take to check if it's a mirror or a space you can walk through
