Turkish Airlines and TAV collaboration rewarded in Washington

Posted 22 November 2017 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines and TAV were presented an award for their lounge project opened last year in Dulles Airport, the gateway to Washington, the capital city of the USA.

The lounge received the "Excellence Award" of 2017 presented by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), the largest construction industry trade association in the USA. Hosting over 180,000 guests per year over an area of 550 square meters, the lounge welcomes passengers of Turkish Airlines and Star Alliance member airlines, as well as Priority Pass, Lounge Buddy and TAV Passport Card holders. The lounge has a seating capacity of 120 guests with a wide variety of open buffet offerings and Wi-Fi, kids play area, prayer and resting areas.

Turkish Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Mehmet Akif Konar said: “I would like to thank TAV Operation Services for this precious collaboration on behalf of Turkish Airlines family. As the airlines flying to the highest number of countries worldwide, Turkish Airlines is proud to be honored with an excellence award in one of the most important destinations in the world. This award that we are presented in Washington proves that Turkish hospitality has an indulgence beyond the borders. Turkish Airlines endeavors to enable a perfect travel experience to its passengers not only during the flight, but also in pre- and post-flight periods. Being awarded for these efforts motivates us to achieve better. We are confident that we will continue to provide new excellences in the following periods in the projects that we will carry out with the collaboration of TAV Operation Services".

TAV operation services general manager Bora İşbulan said: “We are more than happy to carry our collaboration abroad with Turkish Airlines, the flag carrier of our country, from Kenya and Nairobi to Washington and being awarded for our Washington project. Today, TAV Operation Services annually provides services to approximately 4.5 million guests at its 57 lounges at 25 airports, in 15 countries. We closely follow the changing requirements and expectations of our guests and create solutions accordingly. We harmonized the know-how and experience that we have gained so far with traditional Turkish hospitality in the lounge project in Washington and created a privileged area. We plan to expand our collaboration with Turkish Airlines and carry this collaboration to various countries in the following periods.”
