Emirates has opened its 37th dedicated lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The facility was built at a cost of US$6.2 million, and is open to first and business class customers, as well as Platinum and Gold members of the airline’s frequent flyer programme, Skywards.
The Emirates Lounge at LAX features a neutral palette of earthy tones that customers have come to associate with the Gulf carrier’s brand identity.
“A nod to the Golden Age of air travel, the new lounge design is inspired by the understated luxury of our lounges in Dubai’s Concourse A, and is reflective of the discerning tastes of our premium customers”, said Mohammed H. Mattar, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President – Airport Services.
Customers looking to visit the new lounge will find the facility in Tom Bradley International Terminal – where Emirates operates from. Boasting a size of 840sqm, the lounge can accommodate up to 157 customers, and offers a range of facilities and amenities including a terrace view, LED TVs, leather armchairs, a dining area, shower facilities, and a business centre.
Free wifi is offered throughout the lounge, while the F&B options include an open buffet concept with dishes from both the US and around the world, as well as a complimentary full-bar service that serves premium wine, spirits and champagne.
Emirates first started flying to Los Angeles in 2008 using a B777-200LR. The Gulf carrier began aggressively expanding capacity to the US city in 2013, when it decided to deploy the 490-seater A380. Since then, more than one million passengers have flown with the airline on the Dubai–Los Angeles route.
