Copa Air Lines operates its own lounge in Bogota, the Copa Club, offering both Priority Pass and Star Alliance Gold passengers an additional lounge option.
Copa Club Bogota Review (BOG)
I stopped by this lounge just prior to boarding my United Airlines flight to Houston.
Access + Hours + Location
This lounge is both a Star Alliance Gold lounge, meaning Star Alliance Gold passengers flying in any class of service on a Star Alliance carrier are welcome as are Star Alliance business class or first class flyers with or without status. Furthermore, this is a Priority Pass lounge, which offers access to Priority Pass guests (including those with access granted by credit cards from American Express, Capital One, Chase, and Citi).
The lounge is located in Terminal 1 near gate 45 (beyond passport control and security screening) and is open daily from 3:00 am to 9:30 pm.
In terms of design and layout, I found the lounge quite attractive. There is a faux skylight in the middle of the lounge that mimics natural light and plenty of seating. Most seats have power ports within reach.
Phone rooms are available to conduct calling:
Finally, there is a business center with fax and copy machine as well as several desks from which you can work.
Hearkening back to the old Continental President’s Club days (Continental used to own Copa), the lounge had a TV room with several large, plush chairs.
Food + Drink
Like in the Panama City Copa Club, the food and drink selection is quite disappointing (perhaps a bit less so here than at PTY, since this is an outstation and also a Priority Pass lounge). Food was limited to packaged snacks (biscuits, crackers, peanuts). Don’t come hungry: the Avianca Lounge had far better food options.
Drinks included coffee, water, and Coca-Cola, plus a bar with a selection of spirits, wine, and Tecate beer.
The restroom appeared very clean, but there were no shower facilities.
In terms of design and comfort, I quite like the Copa Club in Bogota. But the food and drink selection is abysmal. This is a lounge to sit and work or relax in, not one to eat or drink in.
A Copa Club at BOG makes about as much sense to me as an Admiral’s Club at LHR.
You couldn’t have been more precise!
It is quite basic and DO NOT get there to eat neither to drink… good luck if they can offer you more than pop (soft drink) or coffee (pretty bad by the way). Copa Airlines has a lot to learn about doing Business
