Emi­rates has com­pleted a ma­jor makeover of its Busi­ness Class lounge at Con­course B of Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port. The US$11 mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment project took two years to com­plete and is part of the air­line’s con­tin­u­ous in­vest­ment to im­prove and up­grade its prod­ucts for a seam­less and en­joy­able travel ex­pe­ri­ence.

Emi­rates’ pre­mium cus­tomers can now look for­ward to an en­hanced lounge ex­pe­ri­ence with three new dis­tinct con­cept ar­eas in the Emi­rates Busi­ness Class Lounge. The lat­est food and bev­er­age con­cepts cater for di­verse tastes and in­clude a barista ex­pe­ri­ence in part­ner­ship with Costa Cof­fee, a Health hub with Voss wa­ter fea­tur­ing health­ier op­tions, and an exclusive Moët & Chan­don cham­pagne lounge.

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, which in­cludes pre­mium wine, spir­its and cham­pagne.

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.

Health hub For the health con­scious trav­eller, Emi­rates has in­tro­duced the Health hub in part­ner­ship with Voss wa­ter.

Cham­pagne lounge Cus­tomers who need to un­wind be­fore their flight can look for­ward to the Moët & Chan­don cham­pagne lounge cre­ated ex­clu­sively for Emi­rates. The firstof-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.
