A lounge that’s truly first-class
Personalisation is key on Qatar flights, with personal seat, light and privacy controls on a touch-screen control panel by your seat. However, Qatar’s most impressive first-class offering may be Hamad International Airport’s elegant Al Safwa First Lounge.
With its high ceilings, art installations and designer touches, Qatar’s lounge gives you the feeling of being in a museum, but the El Maha Services may be the pinnacle of its success. A personal hostess provides a warm meet-and-greet service and takes care of all your travel formalities while you unwind in the exclusive space. There are designated Quiet Rooms to relax in and the Vitality Spa with nine treatment rooms and a Jacuzzi. Or, if you’d prefer to use the time to catch up on business, there are individual work stations with computers and high-speed Wi-Fi for guest use.
Hamad International Airport won the Five Star Airport Award in last year’s Skytrax World Airlines Awards for its extra-wide check-in aisles, efficient security clearance and streamlined service. qatarairways.com
