Are you flying Virgin Australia from Perth domestically Business Class? Here is what to expect from the Virgin Australia Perth Business Lounge at Perth Airport.
Virgin’s Business Lounge is located in Terminal 1 Domestic. Turn left as soon as you have passed security. It’s in a great location as you don’t have to walk far at all.
The Lounge is open seven days a week from 60 minutes before their first flight departure until their last flight is called for boarding.
We dropped our checked-in luggage off using the self drop 3 hours prior to our flight’s departure then headed to the Virgin Australia Business Lounge. We were able to do this as there were other flights leaving before ours so the check-in desks were open. Normally they would open about 2 hours prior to departure for domestic routes.

Our Review of Virgin Australia Perth Business Lounge
Upon entering the lounge reception, we were greeted warmly by the staff who checked our boarding passes.
It was quite empty so there wasn’t a problem getting seats (there were quite a few). There were bar stalls with tables, communal long tables with USB and power but most were about 4 chairs around a small table. The seats were more business-like rather than lounge types so it was hard to get really comfy but still much nicer than the airport seats.
The lounge has a contemporary feel to it with neat lines and a crisp white look with mood lighting.
There was a selection of cold foods including quiche, wraps, chicken, salads, salad leaves, falafel balls, shredded vegetables, pasta and a variety of condiments as well as nibbles like nuts, popcorn, and chips. Around dinner, they also serve a hot dish. It was laid out all along one wall, leaving plenty of room for guests to get to what they want.
There are two coffee machines; one at the end of the food and drinks bar and another one in the middle of the lounge. The baristas take pride in their coffee as you can see from the photo.
There was quite a good choice of beer, a couple of reds, whites and a sparkling as well as soft drinks. A separate bar provided espresso coffees and teas. It’s not as well-stocked as some of the other lounges we have been to and do not offer spirits. The wines are also fairly cheap bottles.
The floor to ceiling windows are a great feature to sit and view the planes get loaded and unloaded.
The bathrooms are spotless and there are showers available if you want to freshen up. Towels are also provided.
The Virgin Australia lounge is kept spotlessly clean and the staff are attentive, with plates and glasses cleared up straight away.
We all made use of the complimentary WiFi in the lounge while eating, drinking and relaxing in comfort. Newspapers and magazines are provided if you are not on your device (which can be charged here too).
We used our free flights from ANZ Travel Adventures Reward credit card and the complimentary business class lounge passes. Our daughters’ flights were booked using velocity points.
I’m not sure I would pay the $65 per person fee to enter the lounge but it did make a nice and relaxing start to our holiday.
