TAV Operation Services, a subsidiary of TAV Airports, won the tender for the operating rights of the private passenger lounge at the New Terminal Building of Muscat. The number of passenger lounges operated by the company in eight countries increased to 40.

Primeclass, the brand of TAV Operation Services providing solutions for the passengers who are seeking comfort during their travels, has added Muscat in its service portfolio as the 20th airport. TAV has won the operating rights of the passenger lounge for 10 years by placing the highest bid amongst the seven companies that joined the tender. 

TAV Operation Services general manager Ali Bora İşbulan said: “We are delighted to announce that TAV Operation Services has added another passenger lounge to its portfolio comprising of 39 lounges operated at home and abroad. There will be suit rooms, SPA center and a special shopping hall in Muscat Primeclass Lounge which is going to be constructed on an area of 3,050 meter squares having 550 seating capacity. We will be serving to approximately 250 thousand guests annually at the lounge which is planned to be put into service in 2017. TAV Operation Services/Primeclass has become a preferred brand around the globe which provides privileged travel solutions. We are hosting more than 2.5 million passengers at our lounges per year. In addition to Nairobi Turkish Airlines Star Alliance Lounge opened last month, we will be operating new passenger lounges at Washington D.C Dulles Airport and Frankfurt Airport Terminal-2. We are planning to add 30 more passenger lounges into our business portfolio at the airports which are not operated by TAV. We are focused on our growth plans regarding Germany, France, England, Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy. Besides we are planning to launch new passenger lounges in Africa and USA. Furthermore, our business talks and negotiations are continuing at various cities in the States, namely Chicago, Dallas, Denver, San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles. I would like to also mention that our company can also become a passenger lounge operator in Canada, Chile and Mexica.”

Muscat Primeclass Lounge will be available for the passengers of contracted airlines, TAV Passport and Primeclass Lounge Card holders as well as some other private passenger lounges’ members.
