“There are six units of family rooms that can easily accommodate six to seven people travelling together and requires privacy. Whereas, meeting rooms are highly equipped to host formal gatherings and can house up to 25 people.
“Also, there is a silent cinema for the members to enjoy the movies that are played throughout the day without causing disturbance to others. People will be handed wireless headphones where the sound will be transmitted through it rather than playing over a speaker system,” İşbulan added.
The Primeclass lounge is accessible free of cost to passengers flying business class of any airline and to the members of other loyalty cards.
