INDIA. Airport lounge operator Plaza Premium Lounge today launched its latest facility at Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.

Developed in response to what the airport authority highlighted as ‘its customers’ growing need for a convenient place to unwind and freshen up in comfortable environment’, the Arrivals Lounge offers services such as:

• 28 spa rooms complete with napping and shower facilities.
• A business centre equipped with conference and meeting facilities, secretarial services, photocopying, faxing, printing services and e-mail and wi-fi access.
• Self-service buffet counter and drinks bar offering food, juices and a bar.
• Guest services for children and elderly passengers, in addition to medical facilities and first aid.
• Shower rooms with attached dress areas and private napping suites.
• Head and shoulder massage and foot reflexology therapy.

Plaza Premium Lounge CEO Song Hoi See said: “We are confident that the synergies brought by us would be second to none and contribute to the enhancement of the user-friendliness and reputation of Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, and most importantly, render the greatest convenience and enjoyment to our valued passengers during their stay in the airport.”

GMR Hyderabad International Airport Chief Commercial Officer Viswanath Attaluri added: “Lounges uplift the elegant environment in an airport, as they provide a comfortable place for a passenger to relax before or after a flight. Plaza Premium has the experience and concepts to develop lounges that are in tune with passenger expectations.

“The lounge will be helpful for business executives and women passengers who fly into Hyderabad in the morning for their official meetings and return by the evening flight. It introduces, for the first time in India, the concept of attracting the walk-in passenger to use facilities during transit or while arriving or departing.”
