The new Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge will make its first public appearance at the Emirates Infinite Possibilities stand during ITB Berlin, one of the world’s largest tourism trade fairs, which will run March 8 to 12 at at Messe Berlin in Germany.
“Since we first launched the product in 2008, our A380 Onboard Lounge has gone through small but successive enhancements in line with customer feedback to increase the amount of space for our customers to interact in the lounge”, Emirates President Tim Clark said.
In the Onboard Lounge’s latest revamp, Emirates has taken inspiration from private yacht cabins and has increased the seating space, while making it more intimate and conducive for its passengers to socialise or enjoy the airline’s lounge service. The lounge will retain the trademark horseshoe-shaped bar. Overall, the lounge can comfortably accommodate up to 26 passengers at a time, including 8 seated.
The new Onboard Lounge will also feature an airier look and feel. Lighter champagne colours will be used in the cabin and lounge seating, accented by a glossy dark wood trim.
Moreover, in the lunge, passengers can enjoy gourmet canapés, handpicked wines from around the world and limited edition fine spirits, as well as signature cocktails prepared by the bartender.
All of Emirates’ 93 A380s currently in service feature the Onboard Lounge. The enhanced lounge product will be similarly located on the upper deck of the aircraft, for First and Business Class passengers.
Emirates flies the A380 to 46 cities on 5 continents. It is the world’s largest operator of the A380 aircraft with 93 of these double-decked aircraft in service, and a further 49 on order. Testimony to the popularity of the aircraft amongst travellers, Emirates has carried nearly 70 million passengers on its flagship aircraft since 2008.
Last year, Emirates was voted Skytrax’s World’s Best Airline 2016.
