marhaba, part of dnata and a leading global airport hospitality brand, is partnering with Ski Dubai, the world’s best indoor ski resort, to bring the best of iconic winter destination – Lapland – to the UAE this December.
Kicking-off a range of festive-themed activations now on offer with marhaba at Dubai International (DXB) and Ski Dubai at Mall of the Emirates, Lapland’s most famous resident, Santa Claus, arrived at DXB earlier this week to the thrill of passengers.
Invited as part of a December residency at Ski Dubai, which has been transformed into a ‘Winter Wonderland’ complete with ‘Santa’s Village’, the team worked with marhaba to ensure a stylish welcome for the man in red to Dubai. He was welcomed with a signature marhaba ‘Meet & Greet’ service on arrival, followed by a lounge visit, airport fast-track, and chauffeur drive into the city.
Leaving a touch of Lapland’s festive magic at DXB, marhaba’s lounge at Terminal 3, Concourse B now features its own ‘Alpine Lodge’, a picture-perfect snow globe, bespoke winter-themed menu, and a host of other festive features ready to welcome airport passengers this December.
Steve Allen, dnata’s Executive Vice President, said: “At marhaba, now more than ever, we embrace our core value of offering passengers the warmest welcome and smoothest experience as they arrive in or depart from Dubai. We hope to bring some added festive cheer this year, as travellers look forward to long-awaited reunions with friends and family. In celebration of the holiday season, we are extending the festivities all the way from DXB to Ski Dubai, which is the only place to experience a white Christmas in the desert.”
Ski Dubai’s ‘Winter Wonderland’ packages, which feature the chance to visit Santa’s Village, Santa’s Grotto, a Snow Cinema, and so much more, will be available until 25th December 2021. The festive-themed marhaba lounge at DXB’s Terminal 3, Concourse B will be activated until 5th January 2021.
