Pay to ac­cess Emi­rates’ Dubai lounges

Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

EMI­RATES’ SKY­WARDS BLUE MEM­BERS can now pay to ac­cess the air­line’s Dubai lounges. First class is priced $200 and ac­cess to the Busi­ness Class and Emi­rates Lounge are both priced $100 (busi­ness class pas­sen­gers can pay $100 to up­grade to the first class lounge). Pas­sen­gers can stay in the lounges for up to four hours. Blue mem­bers can pay to bring in a com­pan­ion but if fly­ing on an air­line other than Emi­rates, or on Emi­rates Code­share flights op­er­ated by any car­rier other than Qan­tas, com­pan­ions are not el­i­gi­ble. Plat­inum, Gold and Sil­ver mem­bers can also pay for ad­di­tional lounge ac­cess.

Paid lounge ac­cess for un­der 12s is charged at half the adult rate while un­der twos are free. Asked if the lounges could ac­com­mo­date pay­ing guests at peak hours, an air­line spokesper­son said: “Lounge staff have the dis­cre­tion to turn back pas­sen­gers, who can­not au­to­mat­i­cally en­ter the lounges, if the lounges have reached their full ca­pac­ity.”
