LOUNGE REVIEW: Ryurin Lounge, Naha International Airport, Okinawa

On my way home to Singapore from Okinawa with Cathay Pacific today, I had the chance to check out the Ryurin Lounge at the airport. One good perk of having Marco Polo Club status – even just with Silver – is that you will get access to a lounge as long as you are flying with Cathay Pacific or Cathay Dragon. Naha International Airport is largely a domestic airport with a small international terminal. The last time I was here, the international check-in area was a tiny two-row space, but it has since been moved to a larger hall on the third floor of the terminal to accommodate the growth in international air traffic. Despite the number of international flights coming into Okinawa, there is still only one lounge: the Ryurin Lounge which effectively serves all airlines and their premium customers. At the time of writing, the lounge serves customers of the following airlines: China Airlines Hong Kong Airlines Asiana Airlines Cathay Pacific / Cathay Dragon Air China Korean Air EVA Air China Eastern The …
