CIP First & Business Class Lounge - Imam Khomeini Airport (IKA)
The CIP Lounge at Tehran International Airport is a standalone terminal building, located approximately 600 yards from Imam Khomeini Airport’s main terminal and dedicated to VIPs and premium passengers.The buffet offers a modest selection of cold items and snacks, including fruit, olives, pastries, hard broiled eggs, and mini-sandwiches. In addition, cooked to order omelets are available at breakfast time from a station nearby. The drink selection is a mixed bag. Soft drinks are available, however this being Iran, the lounge does not serve any alcohol. And when it comes to coffee, we suggest that you stay away – the overly sweet liquid that comes out of the machines is just vile.Overall, the CIP Lounge at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini international Airport offers a smooth, relaxing, and exclusive experience to VIPs and premium passengers, with a few high end touches such as the private bedrooms for First Class passengers. Unfortunately, the remote location makes boarding the aircraft a rather time consuming process, and if you arrived from the main terminal, you may find the amount of shuttling a bit excessive. That being said, it is well worth using the CIP terminal, if only to bypass all lines.
