New Lounge at Budapest

MASTERCARD HAS opened a lounge in Budapest Airport’s SkyCourt terminal building, offering free services for passengers who hold one of its premium bank cards.
“According to our research, the majority of Hungarian premium cardholders would like to receive practical benefits they can use on a day-to-day basis,” said Szabolcs Szendrei, MasterCard Europe’s senior manager of innovative project developments.  “That is precisely why we established the lounge at the airport – we can provide exclusive, but at the same time widely accessible, and useful services to premium bank card holders.”
Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers said:  “We are delighted to have the first MasterCard lounge in Europe at our airport.  This branded lounge will widen our offering and will increase comfort for passengers, and we are proud to support MasterCard in offering innovative services for people using their credit card.  The opening of the lounge is an integral part of our strategy to develop the airport into the best hub in Central and Eastern Europe.”
