Emirates has now reopened its dedicated First Class Lounge at Dubai International Airport’s Concourse B to serve the growing volume of premium customers traveling from and through Emirates’ hub, as more markets around the world ease restrictions and put in place protocols that enable international travel.

Emirates will also continue to operate its Business Class Lounge in Concourse B, which has been operating since July 2020 for first- and business-class travelers as well as eligible Skywards members.

With comprehensive bio-safety protocols in place, customers can enjoy a full complement of trademark services located within the Emirates First Class Lounge, including a free facial treatment at the Timeless Spa, complimentary services at Shoeshine by Mr Cobbler, four fine champagne vintages at the dedicated Moet and Chandon bar, special offers at luxury wine and spirits retailer Le Clos, and limited-edition tea blends from Dilmah Tea.

The reopened Emirates First Class Lounge also features refreshed and spacious seating in the dining, rest, and social areas. In addition to a generous selection of fine wines, spirits, and cocktails, Emirates First Class customers can enjoy an entirely new menu with over 55 individual dishes created by chefs at Emirates Flight Catering.

The lounge offers all-day breakfast and lunch options around the clock, catering to customers flying in from different time zones. Reflecting the latest food trends and customer feedback, Emirates’ latest First Class Lounge menu now offers a range of vegan, gluten-free, and other healthy options, in addition to culinary highlights such as chargrilled wagyu burger, 72-hour braised beef short ribs, foie gras terrine, Black Angus tenderloin, and a traditional Emirati breakfast. A generous selection of ice creams and mocktails is also on the menu.

The reopening of Emirates’ First Class Lounge in Concourse B is the latest step in a phased program through which the airline has steadily restarted its ground services for premium customers over the past year. This includes complimentary Chauffeur Drive in 70 cities, and Emirates Lounge operations in Dubai, Cairo, New York JFK, Manchester, Boston, Milan, and Los Angeles.
