La Valette Lounge at MIA one of top lounges amongst 1000 worldwide

La Valette Lounge at Malta International Airport was one of 16 airport lounges to receive a prestigious Highly Commended rating in the Priority Pass Lounge of the Year Awards 2017. The Priority Pass programme boasts a network of over 1,000 VIP airport lounges worldwide.

Inaugurated in March after a complete revamp, as part of the airport’s ongoing €12 million terminal reconfiguration project,  La Valette lounge is open to both members of the airport’s VIP programme, La Valette Club, and to travellers wishing to make a one-time use. The lounge’s standout features include a glass wall overlooking the airport’s bustling runway and an outdoor terrace, which is the perfect spot where to wind down over a drink before proceeding with the journey.

“We are honoured that our recent efforts to improve our VIP offering through the unveiling of a new lounge have been rewarded by Priority Pass with a commendation. This encourages us to continue investing in the lounge facilities, as well as ongoing training for the team so as to ensure that the service delivered reflects the importance that we, as a company, place upon excellence,” said Head of Retail and Property George Mallia.

Set up 25 years ago, Priority Pass has become a much sought-after programme, as it offers a number of different membership plans to suit discerning travellers’ diverse needs.

Priority Pass announces a list of award winners each year after taking into account the votes it receives from its programme members, most of whom are seasoned travellers. The list of criteria that can be rated by members includes overall lounge facilities, refreshments, staff, ambience, and business facilities.
