Muscat: Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate, recently debuted its new and exclusive premium lounge at the award-winning Muscat International Airport. The new stylish premium lounge offers Oman Air guests a further unrivalled service as they travel.
Oman Air passengers travelling in First Class and Business Class can now take advantage of the airline’s new premium class lounge offering a pre-flight oasis of calm.
The beautiful interiors of the lounge have been influenced by the truly unique terrain found in Oman and designed to reflect the un-spoilt, natural beauty of the desert and the rugged landscape of the mountains. “Mashrabiya”, a traditional element of traditional Arabic architecture, has been used to provide privacy in communal areas and add to the fluidity of the spacing.
Spread over a two-storey, the lounge offers guests a wide array of food and beverage services including dining areas and bars, a luggage room, an entertainment area, a smoking room, prayer rooms, business centre, kids’ room, nap area, shower facilities, baby changing facilities and a wellness area.
Covering 429.35 square metres, with an overall capacity to accommodate 100 people, the area designated for First Class guests offers exceptional services including a personal chef, a limousine service from the lounge to the aircraft and relaxation rooms. The Business Class area is 2,313.92 square metres with an overall capacity of 516 people.
Further to this premium lounge, all First Class and Business Class international guests travelling with Oman Air to Muscat International Airport are invited to enjoy the impressive arrival lounge. Nature has been the inspiration behind this lounge and the elegant and tranquil surroundings offer semi-public spaces with plenty of light. The service area is located at the upper corner, in order to leave a large common space for guests to enjoy.
The area of the arrival lounge located on the mezzanine floor in the arrival side of the airport is 237 square metres and has 90 seats. The service is especially valuable for premium passengers travelling on short flights worldwide, as it allows them to freshen up after their flight, get some food or catch up on some sleep.
The opening of the new Muscat International Airport passenger terminal has been an exciting and positive addition to Oman Air services for its guests, and the inauguration of the new premium lounge is just another initiative Oman Air is taking to ensure delivery of the highest level of service to its valued guests.
