After an interiors upgrade, Gulf Air officially inaugurated its Falcon Gold Lounge at Bahrain International Airport.
The fully renovated lounge combines contemporary design and architecture with Arabian influences.
Premium passengers can use seven private sleeping rooms, a cigar lounge and shower rooms with hotel-style towels and luxury brand toiletries and amenities.
Passengers can stay connected with free Wi-Fi throughout the lounge, power sockets at every seat and a business centre that includes PCs, fax machines and printers. For families, the lounge offers a large family room with professional SkyNannies, as well as a gaming room equipped with Xbox and PlayStation units.
The lounge upgrade is in line with the airline’s service and product enhancement strategy.
The architectural design of the 1720 sq ft lounge gives a sense of space and freedom featuring business, dining, lounging facilities and TV areas in addition to views of the runway through a high glass wall.
The private sleeping rooms have comfortable beds with dimming light and the ‘do not disturb’ option. The rooms are also equipped with hi-definition TVs with wireless headphones.
The lounge can accommodate up to 200 people.
Gulf Air chief executive officer Samer Majali said the upgraded lounge was an example of the airline’s commitment to investing in its hub. It was inaugurated under the patronage of Her Excellency Shaikha Mai bint Mohammed Al-Khalifa, Minister of Culture.
“The revamp of the Bahrain Falcon Gold Lounge is part of an extensive lounge-renovation program across our network, which saw the inauguration last year of our new premium lounge in Terminal 4 at Heathrow International Airport in London, and will be preceded next year by the upgrading of our premium lounge in Dubai International Airport,” added Gulf Air chief services officer, Marcus Bernhardt.
