Hamad International Airport in Doha has unveiled the new 10,000sqm Al Mourjan Business Lounge for Qatar Airways’ premium passengers, which it says will “set a new benchmark in airport luxury”.
Travellers who visit the new lounge, which is one of the biggest airport lounges in the world, will be able to make use of private quiet rooms, dedicated family spaces, a games room with PlayStation pods and an F1 racing simulator, prayer rooms, a nursery and shower rooms with complementary amenities.
Business travellers can also make use of a business centre with a conference area, personal workstations with Internet connectivity, printers and scanners. Executive seating with private flight information display screens, reading lights and power outlets is also available.
The most striking feature, however, is the 15-metre by four-metre infinity pool water feature, which is lit by a four-tiered chandelier.
Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways’ Group Chief Executive Officer, said: “Qatar Airways has been known for years for our award-winning Premium Terminal at DIA (Doha International Airport). We are now very pleased to be able to offer our premium passengers our new premium lounge, which sets new benchmarks in airport luxury and will far exceed our passengers’ expectations.
“Qatar Airways does not compromise on quality and the Al Mourjan lounge is the perfect example of this as it is the epitome of comfort, convenience and five-star service that our premium class passengers have come to expect from us. We look forward to welcoming them to this superior lounge experience.”
