Club Mobay Tops Over 20 Lounges Worldwide

Club Mobay won the coveted Best Loved Lounge Award from a nomination field of over 20 lounges across Virgin Atlantic’s worldwide network. The Lounge Leader program allows customers to rate all aspects of their lounge experience including overall experience, look and feel, food choice and quality, introduction to lounge and service provided by the lounge staff.  

October 2015, Virgin Atlantic’s Third Party Lounge Coordinator Amy Reed presented the award recently to Shelly-Ann Fung, Commercial Director of VIP Attractions, owners and operators of both Club Kingston and Club Mobay, at a special recognition in the lounge at Club Mobay.

“This award reinforces global confidence in Jamaica’s tourism sector, and enhances the nation’s global business competitiveness, as a country with an investor friendly climate that’s open for business.  Shelly-Ann Fung, Commercial Director noted. Our accomplishment is a reflection of our team’s dedication, commitment and passion to exceed expectations as well as enhance our product, people and partnerships.”

In its first year, the Virgin Atlantic’s Lounge Leader Awards recognize excellence within its network of partner operated lounges worldwide.

David Hall noted that “the timing of this award, October 2015, was just fantastic where it gives the whole Club Mobay team a great morale boost right before the new tourist season in Jamaica, which promises to be the best ever for the country!  The dedication and hard work that the team display is getting recognized all around the world and is special when it comes from a world class company like Virgin Atlantic, we are truly grateful."

Virgin Atlantic has recently launched a new service to Detroit, along with three new routes into Atlanta. The airline has also increased daily frequencies to popular destinations including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Miami.  Virgin Atlantic currently has a fleet of 38 aircraft which includes Boeing 747s, Airbus A340-600s and its newest addition to the fleet, Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner’s.
