Jamaica's airport lounge, Club Mobay at the Sangster International Airport, has been voted Best Loved Lounge by Virgin Atlantic, a British airline serving over 30 destinations worldwide throughout North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Club Mobay won the coveted award from a field of more than 20 lounges across Virgin Atlantic's worldwide network. The Lounge Leader programme 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 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.

Fung, "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 recognise excellence within its network of partner operated lounges worldwide.

David Hall, the man behind the creation of the lounges noted that, "the timing of this award in October, "was just fantastic as 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 recognised all around the world and is special when it comes from a world class company like Virgin Atlantic, we are truly grateful."

Virgin Atlantic flies to more than 30 destinations worldwide, including across North America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Far East.

The airline has recently launched a new service to Detroit, along with three new routes into Atlanta and increased daily frequencies to popular destinations including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Miami.
