Expanded and Refurbished Marhaba Lounge Reopens at Dubai Airport

Travel News Asia 7 December 2004

The Marhaba Lounge at Dubai International Airport has officially reopened, following upgrading works to expand the premises and introduce new facilities.

Unlike most airport lounges, the Marhaba Lounge is available to all passengers regardless of airline or class of travel. For a small fee of AED60 (US$17), transit or departure travellers at Dubai airport can have unlimited use of all the lounges facilities while waiting for their flight in luxurious comfort.

Ismail Ali Albanna, Dnatas Executive Vice President, said: We are pleased to provide all travellers to Dubai with an enhanced facility where they can rest and refresh themselves before their flights. The Marhaba Lounge has been a hit with travellers since its inauguration in 2000, and the expanded facility will allow us to better serve the increasing number of passengers travelling through Dubai airport.

With a plush yet modern Arabic interior, the newly refurbished Marhaba Lounge can now cater to some 80 passengers at any one time. It also offers a bigger Business Centre with free internet access through six computer terminals, outlets for personal laptops, telephones and fax; and enhanced menus at the Food Court with a wide buffet choice of hot and cold meals.

Other amenities include comfortable settees and rest areas, bar service, an unlimited supply of hot and cold beverages, TV and reading materials. Marhaba hostesses alert customers when their flights are called and a buggy service is available to whisk customers to their departure gate.

Open 24 hours, 365 days a year, the Marhaba Lounge is manned by friendly, highly trained staff who can provide additional services such as reconfirmation of onward flights and check-in for transfers.
