Posted 23 May 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates' premium and loyal customers can now look forward to even greater levels of comfort, hospitality and convenience with the opening of the airline's new two-level premium lounge at the Cape Town International Airport in South Africa.

All Emirates First Class and Business Class customers, as well as Skywards Platinum and Gold members travelling from Cape Town to Dubai will have complimentary access to the new facility, which has the capacity to accommodate 123 people comfortably. 

The lounge, which was recently opened, represents an investment of US$2,89 million by the airline. It is conveniently located in the international departures corridor next to Emirates’ preferred boarding point at Gate A3. 

Emirates’ airport lounges are an integral part of the airline’s service and product offering for its premium and loyal customers, and the continued investment in airport services ensures the airline pays as much attention on providing luxury and comfort on the ground as it does on board it flights. 

Designed with a focus on comfort and quality, the new lounge, coupled with complimentary chauffeur drive service in Cape Town, dedicated check-in counters, as well as Emirates’ award winning on board service, ensures premium customers have a seamless, comfortable and enjoyable journey from the moment they start their travel until they arrive at their destination. Emirates expects to welcome approximately 65-70 premium customers on a daily basis at the lounge. 

Cape Town has become Emirates’ 39th lounge in its network of over 150 global points and the 14th destination to feature the airline’s new lounge design concept, which includes Italian marble floors, leather armchairs and walnut wood finishes creating an upmarket contemporary space with a fresh relaxing atmosphere. 

It offers a dedicated dining area with a choice of bar seating, an extensive menu of complimentary hot and cold gourmet foods served buffet style, including local dishes, and a beverage service which includes a premium selection of champagne, spirits and South African and international wines. 

Customers will also have access to a fully equipped business centre with state of the art touch screen workstations, complimentary Wi-Fi and a dedicated lift to access the upper level of the lounge, which offers a quiet seating area, main dining room, a second TV area, main restroom with showers, and a prayer room.
