SkyTeam airline alliance to open Dubai lounge

The world’s second largest airline alliance, SkyTeam, will open a lounge at Dubai International Airport early next year, it has confirmed.

The 19-member global alliance includes Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) and Middle East Airlines (MEA), as well as American carrier Delta and Air France.

Garuda Indonesia is due to join as the 20th member in March.

Garuda Indonesia will join SkyTeam next month as the alliances 20th member.


SkyTeam has more than 15,000 flights daily to more than 1000 destinations in 178 countries.

Passengers have access to more than 530 lounges, but the new facility in Dubai will be only the third specifically branded SkyTeam.

The other two are in London Heathrow and Istanbul, cities that are main hubs for SkyTeam airlines that are not part of the alliance.

A SkyTeam spokesman said details of the Dubai lounge would be revealed at a later date.
