Madrid, Spain (PRWEB) September 5, 2009
LAN recently completed the renovation of its Mistral VIP Lounge at Arturo Merino International Airport in Santiago, Chile. The purpose of the lounge is to provide passengers with a modern and comfortable place to rest while enjoying a select buffet that includes both hot and cold meals to enjoy prior to flying. Alongside the buffet, passengers will find LAN's exclusive wine selection, part of the Premium Business Class onboard wine menu.
The lounge is available for people starting their journeys from the airport or those taking flights to Santiago (http://www.lan.com/destinations/south_america/chile/santiago-en-uk.html ) as a connecting flight to elsewhere. The lounge contains not only a resting area, but also a hydro massaging shower, wireless internet technology, a business centre and a wide variety of publications, including newspapers and magazines, both national and international. The lounge also offers a designated smoking room.
Designed by renowned Chilean designer Luis Fernando Moro the design incorporates contemporary, simple and pure lines that highlight the architectural uniqueness of the place. The colours for the cloth and curtains were specially chosen to give the room a warm and attractive atmosphere while separators were brought in to provide passengers with more privacy. The lounge also has a mix of photographs, sculptures and paintings created by some of Chile's most famous artists that complement the modern look.
Armando Valdivieso, LAN's Passenger division's general manager, said: "We have completely redesigned the Mistral VIP lounge to offer a modern and comfortable atmosphere, where specially designed armchairs offer maximum comfort and rest while our staff provides you with the best service for those who travel for business or for pleasure. Everything was taken into consideration to ensure a comfortable and pleasant stay as part of our passenger's travel experience with LAN."
Service at our VIP lounges is delivered by a team of professionals dedicated to providing a personalised style of service which has distinguished the airline internationally.
