British Airways opens lounge at Dubai International

British Airways has unveiled its prestigious new lounge at the newly built Concourse D in Dubai International Airport. 

The lounge has been designed to maximise space using architectural elements such as illuminated glass screens giving customers separate spaces to work, relax or dine, creating a calm and relaxing environment. The new premium lounge has a large framed wall mirror that reflects the stunning feature lighting making a more spacious setting. Customers can also choose from a selection of hot and cold food as well as enjoy fine wines at the Deli bar.

Overlooking the airport’s retail atrium, the lounge has been finished to a very high quality, complete with black Nero marble surfaces and European oak flooring. Within the lounge, the new Concorde Bar provides an exclusive area for First customers and their guests to relax and unwind in a private environment before boarding their flight.

Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director of customer experience, said: “Our premium customers flying from Dubai will be able to enjoy the airline’s newest lounge, featuring the exclusive luxury of the Concorde Bar for First customers. We have also ensured that, for the first time, every single customer has access to power and USB points throughout the new lounge to re-charge their personal electronic devices.”

The new lounge has been carefully designed to showcase the best of British design and architecture, offering a stylish, quiet and relaxing space for premium customers. It will also feature artwork from established Iraqi-born artist, Dia Al Azzawi, as well as Gulf heritage images from the British Airways archive.

The new Dubai lounge is home to the airline’s second Concorde Bar, the first of which opened late last year in Singapore. The lounge is open to British Airways’ First and Club World (business class) customers as well as Silver and Gold executive club members.
