Emirates has reopened its lounge London Heathrow’s Terminal 3, as it continues to ramp up its services to the UK.

The carrier’s Heathrow T3 lounge has been shut since April 2020, when the terminal was temporarily closed due to the onset of Covid-19.

The lounge is now open daily between 0530 and 2200, and Emirates said that passengers will be offered “a wide selection of dining options including a premium seasonal buffet with hot meals, self-served salads, cheeses, and desserts alongside a complimentary bar offering pre-flight cocktails and champagne”.

There are also shower facilities, and Emirates highlighted that the lounge is “the only one in Heathrow Terminal 3 which allows travellers to directly board their flight without having to leave the comfort of the lounge”.

Business and first class passengers, as well as Emirates Skywards Gold members enjoy free access to the lounge, and non-eligible customers can pay to access the facility.

Business Traveller last reviewed the lounge in October 2017.
