Turkish Airlines Revamps Istanbul Lounge
Turkish Airlines has completed a 40% expansion to its lounge in Ataturk Airport, Istanbul, which now covers almost 6,000 square feet.
Located in the departure area of the airport, the expanded lounge adds a second floor to the existing space and increases its capacity to over 1,000 guests.
The existing facility, which included a children's playground, library, billiards area, prayer room and teleconference section, has seen an expansion of the rest and shower space, as well as additional massage beds.
The lounge is operated by Turkish Airlines' catering partner, Turkish Do & Co, and offers the likes of Turkish cuisine and free WiFi. Other diversions include a miniature model of Istanbul, game consoles and a golf simulator.
The facilities are all integrated into a space that reflects both Ottoman and Seljuk architectural roots, with different activities available in each colonnaded section. (26/02/14)
