This project is part of the airline’s continuous investment to improve and upgrade its products for a seamless and enjoyable travel experience. The new lounge can hold up to 40 percent more travelers, around 1,500 of them, in an area of 10,000 square feet.
Emirates’ premium customers can now look forward to an enhanced lounge experience with three new distinct concept areas within the Emirates Business Class Lounge. The latest food and beverage concepts cater to diverse tastes and include a barista experience in partnership with Costa Coffee, a Health hub with Voss water featuring healthier options, and an exclusive Moët & Chandon champagne lounge.

Users qualified for this lounge and its benefits include Emirates First Class and Business Class customers, and Emirates Skywards Platinum, Gold and Silver members. Some eligible Qantas passengers also qualify to stay at the lounge.
The three new refreshment areas are the first of a several new concepts planned for the lounges at the Emirates hub in Dubai. In the coming year, Emirates is looking to further improve the customer experience by introducing a sports bar and a cocktail bar within its lounges.
