First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

A new airport lounge will open tomorrow, specifically for VIPs visiting the island for the America's Cup.

The lounge is located outside the arrivals area, past customs, on a private terrace.

Guests will be treated to Bermudian refreshments, such as Dark ‘n Stormies and ginger beer, allowing dignitaries to relax after their flight while they wait for their transportation.

They will be fast-tracked through Immigration and Customs and assisted with their luggage.

The VIPs are expected to include supporters of the six teams competing in the America's Cup, visiting Government officials and celebrities.

The lounge will be open until Tuesday, June 27.

The full cost of installing the lounge has been covered by Bermuda Skyport Corporation Limited with the complimentary drinks service provided by Gosling's.

Ken Hassard, Commercial Director of Skyport, said: “We want to make sure our high-profile visitors start their trip to Bermuda on the right foot, and how better to do that than with a local cocktail. This lounge will provide a relaxing waiting area for those guests we most want to impress and reduce congestion in the arrivals area.”

Charles Gosling, Vice-President/Marketing Director of Gosling's, said: “We are pleased to be able to give our pre-eminent visitors to the America's Cup a taste of Bermuda's unique brand of hospitality with the new complimentary VIP drinks. We will be showcasing the best of Bermuda's cocktails, in particular the Dark ‘n Stormy.”
