Turkish Airlines launches its renewed CIP Lounge

Turkish Airlines has launched an all new CIP Lounge at Istanbul Ataturk Airport.

Last year the carrier was recognised as offering Europe’s Leading Airline Business Class by the prestigious World Travel Awards.

The lounge can now be used by eligible Turkish Airlines’ business class passengers, Miles&Smiles Elite, Elite Plus card holders and Star Alliance Gold membership card holders.

The 3,000 sqm lounge is located in the International Departures and is capable of holding 2,000 passengers in a day and offers an extensive menu of hot and cold dishes.

Other amenities include private relaxation rooms, showers with special toiletry kits, a play room for children and a private infant room is available for passengers travelling with their children.

Passengers can also enjoy the television and music system, daily local and foreign newspapers and magazines.

The CIP Lounge features a billiard hall, library and a business centre complete with all necessary technical equipment including WLAN internet.

City.Mobi

Also in Europe today, City.Mobi is celebrating the success of its new guide to Istanbul.

City.Mobi offers the most comprehensive mobile travel guides available, with over 800 cities in 200 countries listed. Each is developed by the City.Mobi team to combine into a single global travel directory.

However, each city retains its own mobile identity via a dedicated domain. Already on offer are Brussels.Mobi, Paris.Mobi, Sanfrancisco.Mobi and Sydney.Mobi.

Istanbul.Mobi is the latest in this illustrious line up, offering click to call functionality – which means no scribbling down telephone numbers.

Most entries are also linked to websites where users can quickly access more detailed information if needed.

Other key features include information on accommodation, restaurants, attractions, entertainment, nightlife, shopping, and transport.

City.Mobi guides include user reviews and traveller utilities such as a translation guide, currency converter, news and local weather guide.
