South African Lounge Wins Priority Pass Award

Shongololo Lounge Wins Award at Priority Pass Lounge of the Year Awards 2016 – Africa and Middle East Region

Menzies Aviation’s Shongololo Lounge in Johannesburg has been Highly Commended in the Priority Pass Lounge of the Year Awards 2016 for the Africa & Middle East region. Only 14 other regional awards were distributed in 2016, and winning this award places our lounge at the top of the Priority Pass programme – an impressive accolade as Priority Pass lists over 1,000 lounges worldwide.

Priority Pass members are frequent travellers with extensive experience of airport lounges. They rate each lounge visit they make on prioritypass.com and the Priority Pass app. This is the third award that the Shongololo Lounge has won, having previously been recognised in 2011 and 2014’s Priority Pass Lounge of the Year Awards – Africa and Middle East.

Russell Doane, SVP Africa, Middle East and India, stated: “This win is a fantastic reflection of the first class quality of service we provide. We have a great reputation amongst customers in the Africa and Middle East region, with innovative lounge designs combined with a touch of the local culture, all delivered by a great customer service team. Congratulations and well done to Charmaine Richards, Charmaine Lubbe and the Shongololo team. Great result and well deserved!’’
