marhaba, dnata’s leading global airport hospitality brand, has expanded its network to Zurich Airport (ZRH), in Switzerland, to offer world-class hospitality and deliver a safe and memorable airport experience for more travelers globally. 

The new airport lounge of marhaba opened at ZRH ensures excellent value services to passengers of all airlines and travel classes. The stylish facility has replaced the popular dnata Skyview Lounge after a complete renovation of the interior.

Located in the Airside Centre, the new lounge features comfortable seating for over 50 guests. It offers complimentary Wi-Fi, a large selection of virtual newspapers and magazines and all-day dining with a variety of hot and cold food catering to a range of dietary and ethnic requirements, along with a wide selection of beverages. The comfort of guests is ensured by a diverse team of customer-oriented staff.

The modern, contemporary design of the marhaba lounge was inspired by Arabian hospitality but also features local elements, including a wooden ‘Rigi’ cow, courtesy of Mount Rigi, Europe’s first mountain railway which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary.

“We are excited to launch marhaba’s globally renowned airport hospitality services at another dnata hub. Like all other marhaba lounges globally, the Zurich facility was also designed with careful attention to detail, ensuring maximum comfort and excellent quality services for passengers. Our dedicated team looks forward to welcoming and delivering world-class services for all travelers including the customers of our airline and tour operator partners.”

marhaba has implemented a number of measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of customers and agents. The lounge offers touchless payment options and frequently undergoes increased cleaning and sanitization with a specific focus on high-touch surfaces. The lounge staff has all been thoroughly trained on local health and safety protocols.

Passengers can make online bookings through the official site of marhaba or simply walk in and pay for access at a rate of $37.45 on the spot. The lounge is also available for members of several airport lounge programs and passengers of marhaba’s partner airlines.

marhaba was launched in the UAE to help passengers arriving in or departing from Dubai International Airport. The popularity of meet and greet services has grown exponentially in line with Dubai’s growth as a major international travel hub, and marhaba has continually expanded its product offering with a growing list of services and extra options designed to make the passenger airport experience as comfortable as possible.

The marhaba brand is part of dnata, one of the world’s largest air services providers. A trusted partner of over 300 airline customers, dnata offers ground handling, cargo and catering services at over 120 airports, including Zurich Airport and Geneva Airport in Switzerland.
