START YOUR HOL­I­DAY OFF IN STYLE

Friday - - Leisure -

For me, I be­lieve in start­ing as I mean to go on – and that is re­lax­ing in lux­ury at the air­port in the Emi­rates Busi­ness Lounge*.

With a five-year-old child in tow I didn’t want to face the crowds or worry about her get­ting bored so we headed straight there af­ter check­ing in and clear­ing se­cu­rity. With a chil­dren’s play area, a PS3 and driv­ing sim­u­la­tor, there was plenty to keep my lit­tle girl amused while I caught up on my emails.

Ours was an early morn­ing flight so we had a de­li­cious break­fast and juice from the juice bar. There is also a busi­ness cen­tre, Wi-Fi through­out the lounge, flight in­for­ma­tion dis­plays, Sky­wards help desk, prayer rooms and TVs.

Most im­por­tantly, there was peace and quiet for me and fun for my daugh­ter un­til it was time to board the plane. We even had a golf buggy to take us to the gate as it was the other end of the air­port. “This is fun,” my lit­tle girl gig­gled – the per­fect way to be­gin our trip. *Busi­ness class lounges are for busi­ness class cus­tomers only.
