Emirates business class lounge unveiled following $11m refurbishment

3 Mins

The Emirates business class lounge, where all of the food and beverages available are complimentary, can be found at Concourse B of Dubai International Airport.

The premium airline, which has A-list star Jennifer Aniston feature in its marketing campaigns, claims the redesign is in line with a “continuous investment to improve and upgrade its products”.

Three key partnerships with Costa Coffee, Voss water and Moët & Chandon were forged in order to create an “enhanced lounge experience”, which will respectively provide travellers with access to:

Barista service

Caffeine hits and pastries will be provided around the clock through the Costa Coffee stand, whether it’s a cappuccino, iced coffee or something else desired as a pick me up before take-off.

Health hub

In line with the purity of Voss, Emirates has designed a Health hub to cater to travellers with a passion for wellness. Customers wanting to steer clear of a Costa sugar rush will have the options of healthy sandwiches, wraps and salads, which can be washed down with smoothies and juices.

Champagne lounge

For the nervous flyer who perhaps can’t be put at rest for a journey by coffee or fruit, the Moët & Chandon Lounge is where it’s at.

The opening of the area in the Emirates business class lounge builds on the airline’s 25-year relationship with Moët and Hennessy. As a result, it’s the first time an airline has served the alcohol firm’s top four champagnes, including Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage.

Building on the landmark further, Emirates chefs from the flight and lounge catering teams aligned with Moët & Chandon to produce a selection of unique sweet and savoury canapés. The menu will change monthly and include recommendations such as passion fruit and jasmine tea macaroons to be paired with Moët Nectar Impérial.

The three new areas for refreshment are the first of several new enhancements to be introduced to the Emirates hubs in Dubai, with bars for sports and cocktails among additions to arrive inside the next year.

The Emirates business club lounge covers around 10,000 square feet, which will hold around 1,500 customers – pushing seating capacity up by 40 per cent.

Refreshment areas aren’t the only changes to the lounge. The Timeless Spa has been renovated, while the children’s area has doubled in size to accommodate a broader selection of arcade games.
