New MIA lounge is bigger, better and offers stunning runway views

MIA has opened an entirely new VIP lounge, offering passengers more space, improved food options and panoramic views of the runway.

Now located on the top floor of the terminal building, the sprawling 870-square-metre La Valette lounge, can now accommodate even more guests and features a stunning open air terrace where travellers can work, grab a bite to eat or simply relax before boarding their flight.

Passengers are also being offered an improved range of food options, as well as an array of complimentary beverages and all the benefits guests enjoyed at the former lounge.

MIA CEO Alan Borg said: “The La Valette Lounge is an integral part of the package we offer at MIA, and the opening of a new lounge is another key milestone in our terminal reconfiguration project, which is taking the airport to a new level.”
“MIA placed third in the ACI’s Airport Service Quality Awards last year and we are on a constant drive to continue enhancing the passenger experience from check-in to departure.”

In 2016, over 100,000 travellers visited the lounge, which is open to members of MIA’s La Valette Club, business and first class passengers and guests who require more comfort when they fly.

The new lounge forms part of a comprehensive programme to upgrade facilities and services at the airport. The Terminal Reconfiguration Project, which started last September, is expected to be completed in 2018.

Due to the nature of works in the terminal building, MIA continues to advise passengers to arrive at least two hours before their scheduled departure to allow ample time for check-in and security screening since longer queues are possible, particularly on Thursdays when the Cruise and Fly Programme is in operation.
