New lounge option at Melbourne Airport

Stuck at Melbourne Airport for a few hours and need a lounge in which to relax and do some work? 

Members of Qantas and Virgin Australia's frequent flyer schemes, and those flying business class are already sorted, but there is definitely a demand for a pay-as-you-go lounge like the new Marhaba lounge opening next week. 

Marhaba's lounge is located in Melbourne Airport’s Terminal 2 and the facility is available to passengers departing Melbourne on any airline. Prices start from $75 for four hours. 

Marhaba is an Arabic word used in the Middle East as “Hello”, and the Marhaba lounge should not be confused with the Marhaba organisation that is a support group for LGBTIQ Muslims.   


The new lounge features comfortable seating for 200 guests, a quiet zone for relaxation, shower facilities, buffet cuisine from around the globe and a selection of Australian
wines. 

Coffee provider Hudson Coffee is also on site in the lounge, preparing fresh coffee from its dedicated barista bar.

Open daily from 6 am to midnight, the lounge also offers free wifi and Marhaba has linked with the world’s largest independent lounge access provider, Priority Pass, giving its members access to the lounge. 

It is also working with a number of international airlines, providing complimentary access to select passengers flying with those airlines.


Melbourne Airport is the second busiest in Australia and one of the most important travel
gateways in the country with more than 33 million passengers in 2016. 

Passengers wishing to use the Marhaba lounge can make online bookings at www.marhabaservices.com or simply walk in and pay for access on the spot.
