Emirates opens access to premium lounges


Emirates has launched an additional privilege to extend the usage of its luxury lounges at Dubai International Airport to its loyalty programme members and their guests at a minimal fee regardless of their class of travel.

The pay-per-visit access will be available to Emirates Skywards members and their guests travelling on Emirates. Business class travellers now also have the option to pay an upgrade fee to access the first class lounges.

Dubai International Airport is home to seven Emirates lounges spread over three concourses – A, B and C. In each of the concourses there is a dedicated Emirates first class and business class lounge.

Eligible guests can access the Emirates business class lounges in Dubai for a fee of $100 and the first class lounges for $200. Business class customers can also upgrade to first class lounge access for $100. Guests who have paid a fee for entry can stay for up to four hours. Currently, first and business class customers as well as Silver, Gold and Platinum Skywards members receive complimentary access to the lounges in Dubai.
