CASTRIES, St Lucia – The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority ( SLASPA) unveiled its remodelled and rebranded Iyanola Lounge at the Hewanorra International Airport on Friday, 11 November 2022.
The Port Council, senior management, staff and business partners attended the official launch and was captivated by its redefined artistic direction and eye-catching logo as the Lounge will once again open its doors to welcome the travelling public.
Established in 2004 to satisfy the requests by the airlines and the business community to provide such a service to their premium passengers and executives, the service has also been made available for use by all passengers using the airport. The Lounge has been remodelled to accommodate 102 passengers and is equipped with well-appointed seating designed to provide maximum comfort. It now boasts a variety of high-quality specialized services with a strong emphasis on comfort, quality service and the availability of modern information technology to meet the demands of the travelling public.
The new focus of Iyanola Lounge is to provide excellent customer service to its clients and to capture the prestigious award for private lounges. During the coming weeks, the lounge also hopes to commence “Private Room Bookings” for an additional small fee.
Its range of services ranks among the best in the region and rivals that provided by the top lounges in the metropolitan countries. The range of services and amenities offered includes a fully stocked complimentary bar, including hot beverages; a Saint Lucian-inspired menu; private washrooms; and welcome and departure receptions.
