12th June 2013

Manchester Airport’s Escape Lounge has won a prestigious global award in the Priority Pass of the Year awards.

The Terminal One Escape Lounge has been announced as winner of the Best Staff category, beating off competition from over 600 lounges around the world.

Suzy Taylor, Manchester Airport Escape Lounges Manager, said: “To say we are delighted with this award would be an understatement. This is an incredible achievement for our Escape Lounges team and to be recognised globally as one of the best is just amazing.

“We have a thorough staff selection process here at Manchester Airport and the Escape Lounges team have a true dedication to ensuring guests can truly unwind. Our catering partners, Mosaic Hospitality, also ensure a first class service is always provided for our guests.

“We endeavour to build a relationship with each guest, many of whom are frequent users of the lounge. We’re very proud of this achievement and would like to thank everyone who voted for us.”

Priority Pass has revealed that almost 60,000 members voted based on their experiences of the lounges and against a set of criteria for lounge quality.

Global Marketing Director for Priority Pass, Stephen Simpson said: “Having personally spent time in the lounge, I can certainly understand why our members rate the staff of the Escape Lounge so highly. From the smiles at the reception desk, to the full table-service in the bistro area to help on flight boarding times and arrangements, the staff go the extra mile for their guests.”

Manchester Airport is the global gateway for the North of the UK and the largest airport outside London with over 200 destinations served by 65 airlines.
