Business aircraft handling company Safeport has opened its stylish new executive lounge in Cascais, Portugal.

The new lounge has been designed with the purpose to create a relaxing and at the same time a practical environment for business aviation where guests and crew will enjoy their time in a refined space filled with contemporary comforts, decorated with the details alluding to the surrounding Atlantic Coast region.

The lounge also overlooks the runway, with its elevated position allowing for Safeport clients to enjoy superb views of landings and take-offs.

Being the largest lounge on site, the facility includes a spacious comfortable seating area with private restroom, Smart TV, high speed WI-FI and a fully equipped kitchen. Its privileged location is at the entrance of the Passengers Terminal in Cascais Airport, just before the passage to the restricted area. The multi-lingual, highly-trained staff is available for assistance all year around, 24/7.

Reflecting on the launch, Safeport President Paulo Mirpuri said:

“We are all delighted with the response to the new Safeport lounge. There was nothing like it here in Cascais, so it was also a significant milestone for our friends at for Cascais Airport as well as our own design and hospitality team.

“At Safeport, we are always trying to exceed the expectations. The appreciated feedback we have received about the new facility is extremely positive, says Cristina Becken, Safeport’s Handling Manager. She explained that, if a guest or client has a special request, we will do our best to make it happen. From particular newspapers or magazines, freshly cut flowers, personalized catering for dietary or medicinal needs or any other tailored wishes we strive to take care of all of our clients and provide the highest level of comfort and luxury while they are enjoying our cozy lounge.”

The airport has an unique approach towards private aviation, with departures and arrivals processed without long delays, which makes it popular among Safeport’s customers.
