Well, it’s been a hot minute since I last visited an airline lounge! So when Steve and I had the opportunity to use the new Turkish Airlines lounge in Miami International Airport, we jumped at the chance! Our status within the Star Alliance via United Airlines gave us access, and now I’m passing it along to you! Here’s what to expect if you plan to visit the Turkish Lounge flying from or through Miami!
The lounge is located between the H and J concourses. You’ll see the signs as soon as you pass through the TSA security checkpoint. You’ll follow the signs up in an elevator, then down a hallway, and then you’re there!

The lounge is large and spacious, which is wonderful all the time, not just during the pandemic! There’s a variety of seating, all of it comfortable. The color scheme is calming earth tones and neutrals, with gold accents and black or white marble surfaces.
A unique feature of this lounge is the selfie corner! You can take a photo with the backdrop provided, including surfboards depicting both Miami and Istanbul!

Showers and Restroom
One of the things I appreciate about lounges is the ability to know I’m using a spacious, clean restroom. It’s the little things! The ladies’ room in this lounge is one of the nicest I’ve visited!
There is a shower area in the lounge, but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, it is not available at this time. It is also not available for photos. I asked!
The other thing I love about airline lounges? The food! Airport food is expensive, y’all. I’m sure when the pandemic is over, there will be more variety and more availability, but all things considered, they had a wonderful selection!
Instead of having buffet-style access to the food and beverages, we simply asked the attendant for the food or drinks we wanted, and she passed them to us in socially-distanced fashion.
