dnata hospitality brand marhaba has launched meet & greet and lounge services at Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Located within the Departures Hall of Terminal 3, Zanzibar’s new international terminal, the marhaba lounge features seating for more than 70 guests. It offers international and local cuisine catering to a range of dietary and ethnic requirements, along with hot and cold beverages. Guests can relax, watch live TV or catch up with work in designated zones, while enjoying complimentary, high-speed wi-fi.

Both arriving and departing passengers can take advantage of marhaba’s meet & greet services to further improve their airport journey. marhaba’s dedicated agents welcome customers and fast track them through the airport formalities, as far as the arrival area or the departure gate.

The marhaba brand is part of dnata, one of the world’s largest air services providers. Steve Allen, CEO of dnata Group, said: "We are delighted to add Zanzibar to marhaba’s global network, bringing our renowned airport hospitality services to Africa.

"Zanzibar is an area of immense beauty, and its vision to grow its tourism industry will lead to a greater number of visitors passing through its new airport terminal. We look forward to contributing to this growth by delivering world-class services at every stage of the passenger journey. Our dedicated team will ensure a safe and memorable airport experience for travellers."

marhaba, which means 'welcome' in Arabic, was launched in the UAE to help passengers arriving in or departing from Dubai International airport (DXB). The popularity of meet & greet services has grown exponentially in line with Dubai's growth as a major international travel hub. marhaba has continually expanded its product offering with a growing list of services and extra options, designed to make the passenger airport experience as comfortable as possible.

Following its Tanzania launch, marhaba now offers its airport hospitality services in seven countries across four continents.
