Marhaba lounge opens at Terminal 3
Dubai, March 1, 2009
The new Marhaba lounge which opened today (March 1) at Dubai's Terminal 3, offers travellers traditional Arabic hospitality.
'18 years ago, Dnata set up the Marhaba service to give travellers to Dubai a taste of the traditional Arabic hospitality which is such an important part of our culture,' said Ismail Ali Albanna, executive vice president of Dnata.
'The service was named Marhaba - Arabic for welcome – to reflect the unique warmth and hospitality which lies at the heart of our customer promise.'
'To book a Marhaba service is to book peace of mind. Whether at the start or end of their journey, our customers can relax; knowing they’ll be greeted by warm and friendly staff - and that all the hassle we associate with travel, like baggage, check-in and immigration, will be taken care of for them.'
The service is available to all passengers departing from the terminal regardless of class of travel. Bookings can be made online or phone or in person at the airport.
The lounge, which costs from $42 per person, offers all the comforts of an airline business class lounge, including PCs with internet access, Wi-fi connectivity, telephone/fax facilities and data port access for laptop users, as well as a selection of Arabic and continental cuisine and a variety of hot and cold beverages.-TradeArabia News Service
