Middle Eastern giant Emirates has announced that it has re-opened its dedicated First Class Lounge at Dubai International Airport’s Concourse B ‘to serve the growing volume of premium customers travelling from and through Emirates’ hub, as more markets around the world ease restrictions and put in place protocols that enable international travel’.
Emirates has re-opened its dedicated First Class Lounge. With comprehensive bio-safety protocols in place, passengers can enjoy a full complement of trademark services located within the Emirates First Class Lounge, such as: a complimentary 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 with Dilmah Tea.
In addition, the reopened First Class lounge also features refreshed and spacious seating in the dining, rest, and social areas. Also, along with a generous selection of fine wines, spirits, and cocktails, Emirates First Class passengers can enjoy an entirely new menu with over 55 individual dishes painstakingly created by chefs at Emirates Flight Catering.
Emirates states that as per the latest food trends and customer feedback, Emirates’ latest First Class Lounge menu offers a dedicated selection of delicious vegan, gluten-free and other healthy options, in addition to culinary highlights such as: char-grilled wagyu burger, 72-hour braised beef short ribs, foie gras terrine, Black Angus tenderloin, and a traditional Emirati breakfast.

Note that the Dubai-based carrier will also continue to operate its Business Class Lounge in Concourse B which has been opened since July 2020 for First and Business Class travellers as well as eligible Skywards members.
The re-opening of Emirates’ First Class Lounge in Concourse B is the latest in a phased programme where the airline has steadily and safely restarted its exclusive 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.
Meanwhile, the airline has resumed flights to Phuket in Thailand and is resuming flights to Nice and Lyon in France and Malta and Larnaca in the Mediterranean. The carrier is also planning to launch flights to Miami in July.
