Savannah / Hilton Head Airport
The airport is a regional facility with a pleasant terminal that was built in 1994 and expanded in 2007. The terminal features a Flip Flop Stop, a Sunglass Hut, a Burger King, Coffee Shop and a Dewar’s Clubhouse Bar and Grille. Wireless Internet is free. The terminal is a nice open and bright space with lots of glass letting in natural light.
The Passport Club is situated after security towards the end of the gate concourse. When you enter, a friendly attendant at a desk on the right checks your eligibility and then you’re in. The Passport Club is essentially a square room which you can see from the pictures below.
You can select a soft drink from the small fridge or you can make yourself a coffee. The airport is nicely designed so it’s a crying shame that the Passport Club is perhaps the most boring space in the history of boring spaces. A television played some news programming, there were newspapers and that was it. That was it!
The Passport Club reminded me of a school teachers staff room which did not appeal to me at all. For the first time in my life, I left the lounge and went to Burger King for a burger and a coke. That was more interesting than this lounge.
Savannah is a beautiful city and has a pretty little airport attached to it. Clearly they completely forgot to spend any money on the Passport Club. A few thousand dollars would transform the space. New furniture, some colourful art on the walls and perhaps some kind of food selection would really make a difference.
The attendant was nice and the room was certainly a quiet place to get away but Savannah Airport is quiet anyway. I would be quite disappointed if I paid to access this room. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below.
