Regardless of what class you fly, there are two lounges at the airport that you can enter by paying at the door, or via a lounge pass or Priority Pass.

1. International Priority Pass Lounge

The International Lounge is the best airline lounge at Minsk airport and is located in the International Terminal, Airside. It is open 24 hours a day with showers and sleep boxes and is a Priority Pass lounge. The design is very “Minsk” with black marble floors, slightly dated white leather seating, patches of grass green carpet, and a green “vegetation” wall. There are white massage chairs and loungers laid out on fake grass along with the other white leather seating areas.

The lounge lacks any particular style and seems to contain unusual furnishings placed fairly randomly, but it has plenty of space odd and is a pleasant place to spend time. There is not much of a view from this lounge if you like plane spotting.

The buffet showcases local dishes and breakfast included sausages, meats, and veggies, soup, and cereals. Much like the rest of this lounge, the food is pleasant but not fabulous. There is also free coffee, soft drinks and water, and a limited number of alcoholic drinks (beer, etc). While this lounge is worth taking advantage of if you have a Priority Pass as it is better than no lounge, I would not pay a fee to use this lounge, I would instead grab a bite at one of the airport restaurants or bars.

2. Domestic Lounge

The Domestic Lounge is located in the Domestic Terminal, Airside. It is open 24 hours. Showers and sleep boxes are available for an extra fee. We have not reviewed this lounge. This is also a Priority pass lounge with similar decor, black marble floors, and white leather seating with a bar at one end.
