Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 12 March 2009

Priority Pass members have rated the SUMAQ VIP Lounge at Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima as the Lounge of the Year 2009.

In the 5 years that Lounge of the Year has been running, this is the first occasion that the global award has been made to an airport lounge outside the USA.

It reflects the excellent facilities and service available at the lounge, and is the result of an annual poll of Priority Pass members throughout the world, who rate the lounges they have visited. Priority Pass members recorded over 16,000 lounge ratings for the 2009 awards.

The SUMAQ VIP lounge belongs to Inversiones Fisa S.A. a Peruvian corporation and was opened in its current format in 2005 after an initial investment of US$1.5m. It offers a wide range of services for travelers, including high-quality business facilities for those who want to work, as well as relaxation rooms with blankets and pillows, shower facilities, and outstanding personalized service.

Also prominent among the award-winners in 2009 are four airport lounges that won regional Lounge of the Year awards:

North America: Continental Presidents Club, Terminal E, Houston
Europe: Swiss Lounge, Basel-Mulhouse
Asia Pacific: HUB Lounge, East Wing, Seoul Incheon
Middle East / Africa: Dilmun Lounge, Bahrain

SUMAQ’s CEO, Sandra Bravo Goicochea, said, “ I’m pleased to learn that the hard and consistent work of SUMAQ’s team is recognized day in and day out by the passengers we assist. Our knowledge of travelers’ needs is what has helped us deliver the right quality of service and remain committed to maintaining and exceeding our standards. We also look forward to extending the SUMAQ quality of service worldwide.”
