Emirates marks 10 yrs of Int’l Lounge Network
(Dubai) – Emirates Airline said over 22 million customers have enjoyed the haven of an Emirates Lounge since the airline opened its first international lounge outside of its Dubai hub, and demand is growing. In the financial year ending March 2014, more than four million customers were served at the 36 Emirates Lounges around the world. These lounges are staffed by a 1,400-strong team who can interact with customers in over 25 languages.
Emirates Airline opened its first international lounge in Brisbane in 2004, offering the same high standard of service and quality of products that premium customers can expect on-board. The airline has since invested over US$320 million in its lounge network, to open new facilities and refurbish existing ones.
Combined, Emirates Lounges span an area of 69,565 sq m, and can seat 11,526 customers at one time, reflecting the demand from customers in tandem with the airline’s growth.
