First for Oman Air as Business Class Customers Enjoy Brand-New No1 Traveller Lounge at Heathrow
Date: 06 Sep 2011
Oman Air’s Business Class customers can now enjoy exclusive complimentary access to No1 Traveller’s brand-new ‘flagship’ lounge at London Heathrow’s Terminal Three. Gold and Silver members of Oman Air’s Sindbad frequent fliers programme will also have full access to the lounge’s superb amenities.
The national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman’s partnership with No1 Traveller will ensure that customers can make the most of the lounge’s outstanding hospitality, including a complimentary bistro-style menu, fully-tended bar, snug (quiet room), games rooms, showers, cinema, family room and a library which features complimentary Skype facilities.
Oman Air’s Chief Commercial Officer, Abdulrazaq Alraisi, announced the new services, saying:
“Oman Air is renowned for its highest standards of hospitality and comfort in the air and we are delighted that our Business Class customers and Gold and Silver Sindbad members will now receive those same standards of service in the new No1 Traveller lounge at Heathrow’s Terminal Three.
“Oman Air is the first airline to offer its customers access to the No1 Traveller lounge. Business Class passengers on our daily, non-stop and direct London to Muscat flights already enjoy our door-to-door limousine service, online check-in, fast baggage drop and fast-track security clearance and they can now relax in stylish and elegant surroundings while their aircraft is prepared for boarding.”
Paul Starrs, General Manager, Oman Air, Worldwide Sales said:
“The No1 Traveller lounge is set to play a key part in delivering a seamless passenger experience for Oman Air’s Business Class passengers and Gold and Silver Sindbad members, and it is an ideal complement to Oman Air’s recently-unveiled lounges at Muscat International Airport. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with No1 Traveller and to continuing to deliver exceptional hospitality and value for all our customers.”
The No1 Traveller lounge at Heathrow Terminal Three was opened on 11th August and can be accessed upon payment of a fee by any passenger departing from, or transiting through, the terminal. However, Oman Air’s Business Class customers will be able to access the lounge free of charge, with payment only being required for spa services – such as manicure, pedicure, massage, facials, hairdressing and wet shaves - and short-stay, pod-style bedrooms.
Oman Air’s First Class passengers will continue using the exclusive well-appointed Emirates Lounge.
Phil Cameron, founder and CEO of No1 Traveller, concluded:
“We are extremely pleased to be offering Oman Air’s Business Class customers the warmest of welcomes to our new No1 Traveller ‘super-lounge’ at Heathrow. Oman Air is our first airline customer and we have worked hard to create a unique, calming environment in which passengers can relax and await their flights. From the bustle of our bar, through to the tranquillity of our snug and spa, there really is something for everyone."
