For all the passengers traveling to India, there is some good news. The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at Mumbai has become the very first airport in India to have a transit lounge in the arrivals section of the International Terminal (T2).
Though the lounge was in January 2017, yet it has been made fully functional now. Built by Aviserve Airport Services, the Indian airline will tie up with Aviserve to attract more customers.
The main benefit of this new facility will be for the passengers transiting from domestic flights to international destinations.
Coming to the fee attached to avail the facilities, passengers can easily book their spot through travel websites.
The chief executive officer (CEO) of Aviserve Airport Services; Masthan Adam stated that “Most of the passengers using the lounge opt for our predetermined combination of services.”
In the statement, he also mentioned that passengers can avail the facilities like sleeping pods, shower, and food at the lounge for Rs 3715 is the most popular one. It would be a four-hour combination.
Talking about the facility of sleeping pods in India, this concept has been introduced recently. Hence, this is the first such service in the country to help passengers flying to international destinations utilize their layover time
Airports of countries like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Changi, and New Tokyo were the first one to introduce the concept of sleeping pods in the departures area.
Adam also said that similar kinds of lounges will be introduced in three more airports across the country by the end of 2018. Plus, there are also plans to introduce similar lounge facilities at the domestic terminal of the Mumbai airport.
