    Hi All,

    Has anyone been to nice recently? I am BA silver and wondering if we will get lounge access,

    The Canopy VIP Lounge seems like the BA one but it is showing as closed on the oneworld website
    Infinity Lounge is showing open but only for Finnair and S7, are BA customers allowed to go into this or will there be nothing as the canopy is closed?

    I travel through Nice quite often, but they have only just opened Terminal 1 again, so not sure now.

    However, the Canopy is shown as open on the Nice airport website. https://www.nice.aeroport.fr/en/booking/services/vip-lounge/canopy-lounge

    Canopy is after passport control whereas the other one is in the Schengen Zone, hence the difference with Finnair.

    If you want to be sure, I would go to the Schengen zone one first and ask before you go through passport control. When they had limited service in Terminal 2 there was a time when they just had the Schengen Zone lounge open, but it was open for everyone with lounge access, Schengen or not. Once you go through passport control you can’t go back.

    Good luck hope that helps. Nick

    Was just in Nice over the Easter weekend. Canopy lounge was open even though it said closed on the oneworld website. No issues getting in.

    Lounge is past customs, FYI.

    Thanks, Also managed to get in with guest. Was pleasant but food was a bit rough! They also had Champagne but by requesting it from the staff member otherwise you could help yourself to prossecco. Also experienced T5b lounge at LHR for first time and was great, dont think i will be going to Galleries south again if i can avoid it!
