Dilmun Airport Bahrain wins Lounge of the Year award
|May 6, 2012|
The Dilmun Lounge at Bahrain International Airport is celebrating winning the Best Refreshments award in the prestigious Priority Pass Lounge of the Year awards, 2012. The honour was decided by the members of Priority Pass, the world’s largest independent airport lounge access programme.
Jonathan French, head of brand, Priority Pass, says: “Business and leisure travellers often have specific meal-time requirements, such as the type of food they prefer and limited time to enjoy a meal or snack. Airport lounges around the world work hard to meet these requirements, which makes the Dilmun Lounge’s achievement so significant.”
The Dilmun Lounge was singled out for honour amongst 600 other airport lounges globally, with the award based on more than 40,000 ratings made by Priority Pass members from around the world.
