Lufthansa has opened its business class and Senator lounges at Dubai International’s new Concourse D.
The new spaces feature showers, an “extensive selection of food and beverages at the bistro”, lounge areas with leather armchairs, workstations with free wifi access, and “cozy recliners” for relaxing.
The business class lounge is open to Lufthansa, Swiss and Star Alliance passengers travelling on business class tickets, and Frequent Traveller cardholders within the Miles and More loyalty programme, while the Senator lounge can be used by first class passengers and those holding Senator, HON Circle or Star Alliance Gold status.
Commenting on the opening Karsten Zang, Lufthansa’s regional director Gulf, I.R. Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, said:
“Finally, we are able to provide a bigger and more spacious comfort zone for guests with our signature quality on-ground services.
“In 2015, we welcomed around 40,000 guests at our Senator Lounge in Concourse C. Now, with our new premium facility that has just been doubled in size, we expect to receive about 75,000 guests, 35,000 of whom would be first-time visitors to our Business Class lounge.
“We are proud of the multi-million Euro investments we made to build this new lounge knowing that our passengers will have the comfort they deserve while waiting for their flights.”
Dubai International opened its new Concourse D last month (see news February 24), increasing the airport’s capacity from 75 to 90 million passengers.
British Airways was the first carrier to fly into the facility, and BA has also opened its new lounges at Concourse D, including its Concorde Bar for first class passengers (see news February 24).
