The British Airways lounge in Geneva airport will close for refurbishment on Tuesday 28 May 2019.
A new lounge will open later this year. In the interim, eligible passengers namely those travelling in Club Europe or Silver and Gold members of the Executive Club, will be able to use the Skyview Lounge. This is a third party lounge operated by dnata.
This lounge is located near to the existing BA lounge on the mezzanine level in the departures area. Passengers should turn right at the top of the escalator, and the Skyview Lounge is on the left hand side. Pictures of this lounge are on the Oneworld website.
The existing lounge in Geneva is largely based on the “Terraces” format which dates to the 1990s with shades of the “Galleries” format introduced ten years ago.
In terms of other BA lounge refurbishments this year, the new Club lounge at New York JFK Terminal 7 is due to open this year. The BA lounge in San Francisco is currently closed for refurbishment and will reopen in the summer. BA is also due to refurbish its lounges in Johannesburg this year. In the medium to longer term, other lounges earmarked for refurbishment include Chicago, Heathrow, Manchester and Miami.

Update Sunday 9 June 2019: The lounge will close for refurbishment on Monday 10 June 2019 and will reopen in late 2019.
