Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer Mr. Samer Majali told TravelPlus, “The opening of the lounge is further an example of our commitment to invest in the UK market and our focus on improving our products and services. Passengers these days, particularly premium passengers, have become more discerning. With time increasingly at a premium, lounges are no longer just a place to wait for flights or transit spots between connections; premium passengers look for functionality as well as comfort. The new lounge caters to this; the modern business center is equipped with superfast IMac computers and internet, fax and all other office support functions for those busy executives to continue with their business. For those wishing to relax in the comfort of the lounge chairs, the 4 meter high, floor-to-ceiling glass windows provide a vantage point to sit back and watch the aircraft taking off. I am sure it will be a refreshingly different experience for our premium passengers.”
