Emirates to reveal new on-board lounge for Airbus A380
Emirates will launch a series of new cabin products and enhancements in 2017 for both its A380 and Boeing 777 fleet.
The multi-million dollar cabin interiors upgrade programme includes an enhanced on-board Lounge for its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft.
Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline said: “The A380 on-board lounge is hugely popular with our customers, and has become an iconic feature of Emirates’ A380 offering.
“Particularly on long-haul flights, our customers tell us they appreciate the opportunity to stretch their legs and mingle in the relaxed, yet classy lounge area.
“Since we first launched the product in 2008, our A380 on-board lounge has gone through small but successive enhancements in line with customer feedback to increase the amount of space for our customers to interact in the lounge.
“In our latest revamp, we have taken inspiration from private yacht cabins, and among other thoughtful touches, we have increased the seating space, and also made it more intimate and conducive for our passengers to socialise or enjoy our lounge service.”
The new Emirates A380 on-board Lounge will make its first public appearance at the Emirates Infinite Possibilities stand during ITB Berlin, one of the world’s largest tourism trade fairs.
It is currently being installed onto one of Emirates’ brand new A380 aircraft at Airbus’ facilities, and will make its operational debut in July 2017.
