Emirates has opened a brand new 1058 square metre lounge in Dubai for its First Class passengers.
The lounge is located in Terminal 3 at Concourse 1 in front of the Business Class lounge and is the second dedicated First Class lounge in the terminal. There is also a dedicated First Class lounge at Concourse 2, so passengers have the option of relaxing in either one. The new lounge is more conveniently located for First Class passengers flying from any of the 14 gates at Concourse 1.
The First Class lounge features a quiet zone with eight recliners, two 55 and 65 inch LED TVs, plush leather armchairs, a choice of formal or relaxed seating, two dining areas, shower facilities, a business centre with four individual work stations, Wi-Fi within the lounge, a water feature, contemporary artwork, and a smoking area.
The lounge is in keeping with the style of the other dedicated First Class lounge, with a contemporary design and a timeless colour palette. It features Italian marble flooring, high-quality European leather and gold-plated Rolex wall clocks from Geneva. Guests can dine a-la-carte from an extensive menu offering numerous hot and cold dishes and enjoy premium beverages from the bar. Passengers also have the choice of eating in either the informal or formal dining area depending on their mood.
“The opening of the new Emirates First Class Lounge allows us to provide our customers with a consistent, high-quality Emirates experience both on the ground and in the air, starting from their exclusive chauffeur drive airport transfer and dedicated airport check-in counters, to luxurious lounge facilities and then our award-winning service on-board,” said Mohammed H. Mattar, Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates Airport Services. “Lounges are an integral part of the Emirates experience, and reaffirm our dedication to offering the very best to our customers.”
The luxurious First Class lounge, which is exclusive only to First Class customers, is Emirates’ 29th dedicated lounge around the world.
