Helpful tips

●  The space of the transit lounges is limited. Advance reservation is required.

●  Advance booking is not needed for first class and business class passengers transiting through Shanghai Pudong International Airport and they can directly enter the transit lounge. The Air China first class lounge is provided for first class passengers and the Air China business class lounge is provided for business class passengers. All other passengers must book the service through a manual or self-service channel before the flight to the transit city departs. The service is only available to passengers who have booked successfully. Passengers without a successful booking may not enter the paid airport transit lounges.

●   If the relevant transit segment is changed, you need to re-book the hourly charged lounge. You can use it after successful reservation.

●   When arriving at the lounge, passengers must provide the ID document used to purchase their ticket and the boarding pass for the relevant flight segment so that staff can verify the passenger's identity. The transit lounge service is only available after successful verification. Staff will make and retain copies of the passenger's ID and boarding pass. If the passenger does not agree to the staff making such copies, the passenger shall be deemed to have voluntarily waived the use of this product.

●  The number of guestrooms, shower rooms and sleeping rooms in a lounge is limited, which makes it impossible to guarantee that a passenger’s need is always been met. The passenger who needs one should make the request at the time of lounge visit.

●  In principle, the paid airport transit lounge at Shanghai Pudong International Airport is provided for transiting passengers on the condition that there is enough room for business class passengers. In the event of mass delays and fully occupied lounges, first/business class passengers and Gold Card passengers and above will be given priority.
