Emirates lounges in Germany
Emirates has opened its third lounge in Germany at Dusseldorf International Airport yesterday. The dedicated lounge measures some 700 square metres and is its largest in the country.
Premium Class travellers can surf the internet using complimentary broadband access, catch up on work at the lounge's Business Centre, or watch widescreen TV after sinking into leather armchairs, whilst sampling the gourmet cuisine.
Passengers can also take a shower - with Timeless Spa accessories on hand, or have a therapeutic session in a scientifically designed massage chair, as they enjoy complimentary drinks.
Mohammed Mattar, Emirates' Divisional Senior Vice President, Airport Services, said: "These lounges are an integral part of the Emirates experience, putting passengers in the best possible frame of mind for their journeys. We have invested heavily in these world-class travel sanctuaries and continue to do so, which is particularly significant during these troubled economic times."
Germany is a major market for Emirates with 49 passenger flights a week going into Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg.
Christoph Blume, CEO, Dusseldorf International Airport, said: “With two daily flights from Dusseldorf, local travellers have been familiar with Emirates for years. The new lounge is a great enrichment for the airport and a clear commitment to the destination of Dusseldorf. It emphasises not only the airline’s absolute service philosophy, but also the importance of Germany’s third largest airport within the airline’s global route network.”
