Shongololo Lounge Wins Priority Pass Lounge of the Year 2012 - Africa and Middle East
e-Bulletin from Forsyth Black - SVP Africa
Menzies’ Shongololo Lounge at Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport got some fantastic and well-deserved praise recently when it was announced that they’d won the 2012 Priority Pass award for the Lounge of the Year – Africa and Middle East.
Shongololo has been one of Menzies greatest success stories in South Africa since it opened in 2009. It raised the bar in a poorly served market at the time and immediately attracted much of the premium passenger market, including airlines such as Cathay Pacific, Etihad, Qatar and Qantas. Priority Pass customers are allowed choice of lounges at OR Tambo and the majority of them vote with their feet and come to Shongololo. Many clearly also voted with their customer response forms and comments to Priority Pass, too, leading to this prestigious award.
Really well done to Charmaine Richards, Charmaine Lubbe and the Shongololo team – the best Lounge team in Africa and Middle East 2012!
