Abu Dhabi Airports has awarded the contract for the development and management of the lounge at the Midfield Terminal to National Aviation Services (NAS) and Airport Dimensions.
The lounge, spanning more than 3,500m2 (37,670ft2 ), will be located at the heart of the new Midfield Terminal, offering access to independent travelers, regardless of the airline they are traveling with or the class of their ticket. It is accessible to passengers who are departing or transiting through Abu Dhabi International Airport.
“We are pleased to work with both NAS and Airport Dimensions on the construction and management of the new lounge. NAS’s operations within the Middle East mean that its regional knowledge will be invaluable in bringing this project to completion, while Airport Dimensions’ extensive expertise in airport lounge design and management will help to create a lounge that leaves passengers refreshed,” said Bryan Thompson, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports.
The partnership represents Airport Dimensions’ first project in the MENA region, adding to its global portfolio of 22 lounges. NAS currently operates 40 lounges across Africa, the Middle East and Asia, including the VIP Terminal with meet and assist services at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
