dnata’s airport hospitality brand, marhaba, has expanded its international network with new lounges at international locations.
The airport services provider will increase the global capacity of its airport lounges by expanding one of its flagship lounges in Dubai, and opening an additional facility in Geneva, Switzerland.
The expansion of the UAE lounge will be completed next summer, while the new Swiss lounge is expected to open by the end of 2020.
marhaba will also refurbish and rebrand existing dnata lounges at the airports of Geneva, Zurich and Singapore, bringing all facilities in the company’s network under the same brand in the next two years.
Shahab Al Awadhi, head of marhaba Global, said: “Air travel experience has become more than just the in-flight journey. From the moment they enter the terminal, passengers are looking for quality services to improve their travel experience at the airports.
“Taking advantage of our global network and extensive experience in airport and catering services, we pride ourselves in offering a premium lounge product that has been designed to fully meet the needs of passengers of all travel classes.”
marhaba started to expand its global footprint in 2017 by opening new airport lounges in Karachi (Pakistan) and Melbourne (Australia). Since then, it has opened a new facility in Singapore and substantially increased the capacity of its airport lounges in Dubai.
Including its new and rebranded lounges, marhaba will operate 13 departure airport lounges in five countries providing service excellence to over 2.6 million passengers annually with a team of over 800 customer-oriented employees.
