The Al Dhabi Lounge at Abu Dhabi International Airport has been voted the best airport lounge in the Middle East and Africa.

Nearly 60,000 Priority Pass members voted based on their experiences of the programme’s lounges globally and against a set of criteria for lounge quality, including refreshments, staff, business facilities and overall ambience.

Now in their ninth year, the awards recognise excellence within Priority Pass’s network of more than 600 partner-operated lounges worldwide. The overall global award went to the Pau Casals VIP lounge at Barcelona ’s El Prat airport in Spain.
