Oman Air’s Business Class lounge at Muscat International Airport has once again garnered international acclaim. The lounge has been awarded a top-five position in Hipmunk’s list of ‘The Top 20 Airport Lounges in the World’. Furthermore, it is the highest-placed lounge in the Middle East region.
Founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, Hipmunk’s website and mobile apps offer its customers a fast, easy way to plan travel. The company also publishes a digital magazine, Tailwind, in which the ‘Top 20 Airport Lounges…’ listing was published. The list has since been published by a number of international titles, including Travel Daily News and travelpulse.com.
Hipmunk worked with online information specialists Priceonomics to analyse data from Skytrax, the independent airline and airport quality experts. Thousands of travellers have posted comments on the Skytrax website about airport lounges and have ranked them on a range of services, such as comfort, Wi-Fi, drinks, food, and staff friendliness.
Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Gregorowitsch, welcomed the accolade, saying:
“We are delighted that Oman Air’s Business Class lounge at Muscat has been recognised in this way. We first opened the lounge in January 2011 and it is clear that our premium guests have greatly appreciated its elegant design, relaxing atmosphere and exceptional services. And since we reopened the lounge earlier this year, following extensive refurbishment, it has attracted even greater acclaim.
“So whilst we are extremely pleased to have been awarded fifth place in ‘The Top 20 Airport Lounges in the World’ – and to be listed as the best airport lounge in the Middle East – it comes as no surprise that air travellers rate us so highly. I would like to thank all those guests whose views contributed to the final result.
“Demand for Oman Air’s Business Class passenger experience is always high. However, we look forward to welcoming even more guests to our Business Class lounge at Muscat as a result of this accolade.”
Oman Air’s Business Class lounge is located on the first floor of Muscat International Airport’s terminal. It combines the ultimate in modern and elegant interior design with state-of-the-art materials and technology. The lounge offers dedicated dining facilities, quiet rooms, men’s and women’s prayer rooms, wash and shower rooms, a business centre, and a spa with massage rooms, offering complimentary 15 minute treatments. It is an ideal environment in which to deliver the generous hospitality for which Oman Air and the Sultanate of Oman are renowned.
