“Heineken constantly looks for opportunities to create innovative and engaging experiences for consumers as part of our effort to further build brand equity and drive growth of the brand,” said Filip Wouters, vice president of marketing, Heineken brand equity. “The ‘Heineken Lounge’ is a luxury bar that showcases the brand in a unique environment away from the hectic pace of today’s airports. We’re excited about the opportunity to connect with millions of international travelers who can now experience the welcoming, global nature of the brand as they prepare to depart on their own adventure.”

“It was an exciting and rewarding process working with Heineken to bring the Heineken Lounge to Newark Liberty International Airport,” said Matt King, president of Delaware North’s Travel Hospitality Services Division.“We look forward to inviting travelers to kick-back and relax in style at the Heineken Lounge. This is just another example of how we are dedicated to bringing innovative brands to travelers across the country.

The Heineken Lounge combines many of the desired attributes of a membership-only airline lounge and applies them to a bar open to all travelers during their visit to Newark Airport. Tapping into research showing that consumers prefer branded outlets at airports, Heineken worked with Delaware North Companies, one of the world’s leading hospitality and food service providers, to create a unique environment that exhibits the world-class quality and taste of the brand and offers international travelers an engaging, entertaining experience.
