Plaza Premium Group and marhaba sign joint venture agreement
Plaza Premium Group (PPG) has entered into a joint venture agreement with fellow airport hospitality brand, marhaba, to expand their international offering.
The partnership brings together two major hospitality brands to combine knowledge and resources, which according to the partners, “will take airport hospitality to the next level through excellent and innovative airport concierge and lounge services as travel demand increases globally”.
The first project under the agreement will see the development of the new marhaba Plaza Premium Lounge at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan, which is set to open in July 2022.
The lounge will have a capacity of 140 guests and is said to be inspired by the beautiful landscape of Amman, with subtle inclusion of the local culture and heritage in its design.
Bora Isbulan, deputy CEO of PPG said: “This is truly an exciting opportunity for PPG. Our global agreement with marhaba is a testament to our shared commitment to providing the best-in-class airport hospitality for travellers to enjoy.
“We expect to yield more opportunities in the future through this collaboration. Meanwhile, we are also excited to announce our first venture through the PPG and marhaba’s global agreement, the launch of the new marhaba Plaza Premium Lounge. Travellers will be able to experience the new lounge later this year.”
Marhaba is the global hospitality brand of airport ground services provider, dnata.
Steve Allen, CEO of dnata Group, noted: “We are thrilled to join forces with PPG to bring our globally renowned airport hospitality services to more travellers across the world.
“Our joint commitment to quality and service excellence will ensure first-rate customer experience for travellers throughout their journey.
“We look forward to opening the first, best-in-class marhaba Plaza Premium lounge in Amman and further enhancing our joint offering in the coming years.”
