Istanbul gets new SkyTeam lounge

SkyTeam has opened its new lounge at Istanbul’s Atatürk International Airport.  The lounge is available to Elite Plus, First and Business Class customers flying from the airport on any of the alliance’s 10 airlines that serve Istanbul.

The facility lounge is a key milestone in the alliance’s airport-focused initiative, ‘SkyPort’ developed to realize synergies for SkyTeam members by sharing facilities at airports worldwide.

As part of this initiative the Delta/Air France led alliance plans to open two more lounges: in Sydney by the end of 2013 and in Beijing in 2014.

The new 350sq m lounge seats up to 90 passengers and offers high-end hospitality with amenities including: a business centre, complete with printing facilities and complimentary wi-fi; a relaxation zone with oxygen bar and massage chairs; a bar and buffet offering a selection of different cuisines; more than 70 electric power sockets for customer use; and a reading area.

Regulars at SkyTeam’s flagship popular duplex operation venue at Heathrow Terminal 4 will recognise many of the features of that successful operation including the signature bronze pendant lighting and sleek, curved furnishings.  To maintain a tranquil ambience and enable customers to work or just unwind, television is available in a separate viewing room. www.skyteam.com
