Emirates says $11m revamp completed of Dubai business class lounge

Emirates airline has announced the completion of a major makeover of its Business Class lounge at Concourse B of Dubai International Airport which includes a champagne lounge.

The $11 million refurbishment project took two years to complete and is part of the airline’s continuous investment to improve and upgrade its products, the Dubai-based carrier said in a statement.

Emirates also said it is looking to further improve the customer experience by introducing a sports bar and a cocktail bar within its lounges within the next year.

It said its premium customers can now look forward to an enhanced lounge experience with three new distinct concept areas within the Emirates Business Class Lounge.

They include a barista experience in partnership with Costa Coffee, a health hub with Voss water and an exclusive Moët & Chandon champagne lounge.

Emirates added that the new offering is in addition to the seven other locations within the lounge with gourmet cuisine prepared by on-site chefs and a complimentary full bar service.

All the food and beverages offered within the lounge are complimentary for Emirates First Class and Business Class customers, as well as Emirates Skywards Platinum, Gold and Silver members - the airline’s frequent flyer programme.

For the health conscious traveller, Emirates has introduced the health hub which features a healthy menu of gourmet sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Healthier beverages such as a selection of juices and smoothies are also available.

The champagne lounge has been created exclusively for Emirates and in-house lounge teams have collaborated with Moët & Chandon to create a unique selection of canapés.

The Business Class lounge in concourse B is one of six Emirates lounges at Dubai International Airport and is part of a network of 39 dedicated airport lounges located within major airports around the globe.

The newly refurbished lounge measures close to 10,000 square feet to accommodate over 1,500 customers – a 40 percent increase in seating capacity.
