Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) has added a premium traveler lounge. The Lignum Club opened this week at the recently revamped airport’s domestic and international terminal. The new facility features distinctive architectural elements and custom-designed, Bahamian-themed artwork from local artisans.
The Lignum Club offers travelers a sedate environment for relaxation, plus two bars and services including hot and cold food and beverages. The facility also features Wi-Fi access, computer work stations with data ports and a business center offering international telephone calls, photo copying and printing.
A private meeting space and catering and spa services are also available. Travelers can make reservations on the lounge’s website or simply walk in. The lounge is the newest facility at LPIA, which has undergone a three-stage, $409 million re-development since 2011 that included the expanded domestic and international terminal.
The new Bahamas facility mirrors other recently expanded airport facilities at Caribbean airports. Earlier this year the Club MoBay lounge at Jamaica’s Sangster International Airport was expanded by an additional 3,000 square feet, enabling the lounge accommodate an additional 800 passengers arriving at Sangster.
The expanded lounge offers a panoramic view of the runway and a new bar and buffet line. Like the Bahamas airport, the décor is highlighted by a comprehensive display of artwork and photographs from Jamaican artists. Club MoBay guests can also rent electronic devices, purchase Jamaican SIM cards for local data usage and arrange pick-up and drop-off service.
Also Puerto Rico’s Luis Munoz Marin International in San Juan is implementing a $750 million renovation and expansion designed to ease travelers’ transport through the facility, while adding new cuisine and shopping options and services.
