Kenya Airways adds new more seats at Simba lounge

Kenya Airways has expanded its lounge at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to cater for the ever increasing discerning customer. Under the brand name Simba lounge, two Kenya Airways operated lounges at JKIA will seat over 200 passengers with the older Simba lounge seating over 50 passengers and the newly expanded Simba lounge on the second floor at JKIA seating 150 passengers in an area of about 1500 sq meters.

The lounge service will cater for business class, flying blue elite plus and SkyTeam elite plus passengers. This is part of the Sky team SkyPriority passenger service where high-value customers get the same unique service across all the 500 lounges in all Skyteam member airlines. The improved lounge at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport will offer elite plus passengers world-class services, making them comfortable ahead of their travel and during their transit.

Kenya Airways Group Manager and CEO, Dr. Titus Naikuni said the lounge expansion was a testament of the ever growing demand for premium travel.  “This expansion is a demonstration of the passenger demands to good service both onboard and on ground. We owe it to ourselves to ensure that we offer a seamless service to the passengers onboard and on ground. Simba Lounge also elevates the profile of our hub, the JKIA,” said Dr. Naikuni.

The lounge services will include amongst others complimentary food, snacks and drinks, hot shower facility, high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection, cable TV, international newspapers, journals and a warm, caring, friendly African service.  Passengers will enjoy more space, increased sitting capacity and more recreational area at the new lounge that will be open to all Platinum and Gold card elite frequent fliers from all SkyTeam member airlines, departing or flying via Nairobi.

The expanded facility complements the already popular Simba Lounge which will now offer similar services, with passengers getting an option to choose which of the two lounges to use while waiting to depart.
