Emirates completed US$11 million makeover of its Business Class lounge at Dubai International Airport.
Jennifer Aniston made new friend on Emirates. This season, Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress returns for another adventure in her latest Emirates product campaign. If you have the chance, you can spot Jennifer in the newly-renovated Emirates Business Class lounge at Dubai International Airport.
This refurbishment project took two years to complete, but we can now look forward to an enhanced lounge experience with three new distinct concept areas. The latest food and beverage concepts cater to diverse tastes and include a barista experience in partnership with Costa Coffee, a Health hub featuring healthier options, and an exclusive Moët & Chandon champagne lounge.
For the health conscious traveller, Emirates has introduced the Health hub in partnership with Voss water. With an increasing demand for health, well-being and more nutritious meals, Emirates is the first airline to have a dedicated health hub within its lounge.
The new station allows travellers to rehydrate and recharge before their flights with a selection of fruit and water infusions. It also features a healthy menu of gourmet sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Healthier beverages such as a selection of juices and smoothies are also available.
The newly refurbished lounge measures close to 10,000 square feet to accommodate over 1,500 travellers – a 40% increase in seating capacity. In addition to the new refreshment stations, the children’s play area with arcade quality games has been doubled in size, and the Timeless Spa within its premise has been renovated and offers hair, beauty and therapy treatments.
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. You will find here champagne, premium wine, spirits, and Moët & Chandon champagne lounge canapés. Goat cheese and Emmental gougere, sliced smoked duck on sushi rice & hoisin sauce, cauliflower Pannacotta and teriyaki sauce, or veal bacon gougere? Hard to resist. 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. Lounge guests can also refresh with a shower, unwind at designated quiet areas, stay up to date with the latest news and live sports and stay connected with complimentary Wi-Fi.
Emirates says, the company is looking to further improve the customer experience by introducing a sports bar and a cocktail bar within its lounges.
Moët & Chandon Champagne lounge
Customers looking to unwind before their flight can look forward to the Moët & Chandon champagne lounge created exclusively for Emirates. The first-of-its-kind lounge to be located in an airport reinforces Emirates and Moët Hennessy’s longstanding partnership of over 25 Years.
Moët Hennessy champagnes are a mainstay of the Emirates experience; however, this is the first time an airline is serving four of Moët & Chandon’s finest champagnes in one place. This includes Moët Impérial, Moët Rosé Impérial, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage and Moët Nectar Impérial.
To complement each champagne, chefs from Emirates flight catering and the in-house lounge teams collaborated with Moët & Chandon, to create a unique selection of canapés – from sweet to savoury flavours. The canapé menus are changed monthly and include selections such as smoked salmon wrapped in nori with wasabi mayonnaise to complement the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006 and passion fruit and jasmine tea macaroons to be paired with Moët Nectar Impérial.
