Airport Lounge Development reported it has added Nancy Knipp as senior vice president in the company´s executive leadership team.
Knipp brings more than three decades of experience specializing in the airline and airport lounge industries. She will lead ALD´s business operations and growth strategy, and joins ALD in advance of the opening of the company´s sixth airport lounge at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, The Club at PHX on April 9th.
“The demand for airport lounge access continues to escalate as more travelers on business, on leisure or simply traveling with their families are looking for a comfortable, quiet environment to be more productive on their journey,” said Knipp. “Flyers are clearly expressing interest in a more inclusive experience. As a result, the number of airports implementing and reviewing options for an independent shared-use lounge has grown tremendously in the past two to three years, especially as overcrowding within airline lounges continues to rise.”
Operating since 2006, ALD is now the US leader in independent shared-use lounges offering an affordable hospitality experience for travelers on any airline and traveling any class of service. ALD specializes in the design, construction, operation, management and marketing of independent shared-use airport lounges. ALD´s experienced leadership team is known for delivering a turnkey lounge solution tailored to the airport´s needs and supported by an established customer foundation.
