Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air has officially opened its premium ‘Falcon Gold’ lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 4.
The expansive, 6500 sq.ft Falcon Gold lounge combines contemporary design and architecture with Arabic influences, creating an environment that combines peace and tranquillity with extensive modern-day business facilities. Catering to all travellers, features include; a self-service buffet with a wide section of a Halal menu, a prayer room, wash rooms and showers, baby change facilities and secure lockers.
The open plan design of the lounge’s architecture gives a sense of space and freedom with the central area featuring a bar surrounded by well laid out business, dining, lounging, TV areas and private rooms.
Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer Mr. Samer Majali said, “Air travel these days has become savvier and passengers, particularly premium travelers, have become more discerning. With airports increasingly becoming busier, lounges are no longer just a place to wait for flights or transit spots between connections; premium passengers look for an oasis of peace and comfort, expect higher levels of facilities, and personalized service. I am sure it will be a refreshingly different experience for our premium passengers.”
“One of the key components of Gulf Air’s new business strategy is to focus on improving our products and services we offer our customers. The lounge is an example of this. As we keep improving ourselves in our customer service on the ground, we will continue to add more features and facilities in the air as well, so that our premium customers enjoy a consistently enhanced experience throughout their journey” Mr. Majali concluded.
Open from 0600 hours to 2230 hours daily, the lounge can accommodate up to 110 persons and all Platinum, Gold and Silver card holding FFP members of Gulf Air, and premium class ticket holders of Gulf Air’s code-share partner airlines.
