This summer, Star Alliance opened a lounge in Leonardo da Vinci’s Airport in Rome, and just recently another lounge opened up in Rome by Emirates. This luxury airline that debuted a phenomenal new business and first class suite earlier this year now welcomes business and first class passengers to their lounge in Rome’s Airport.
Emirates considers the new business and first class lounge a huge success for the airline, especially since it’s a major improvement from the previous lounge customers had to use. After $4.5 million US dollars invested, Emirates is able to “provide the highest levels of comfort and convenience, not just in the air, but also on the ground”, said the Divisional Senior Vice President for Emirates, Mohammed Mattar.
Emirates business and first class lounge at Rome International spans across 10,225 square feet of space with lots of light, views of the runway, and seating that can accommodate 162 travelers. The modern interior is a perfect reflection of the brand, which is seen throughout other Emirates lounges including the Dubai Champagne Lounge.
There are comfortable chairs made from leather, some of which are located in semi-private spaces, whereas others are in an open, social setting. The lounge also offers travelers a prayer room, showers, TV’s throughout, business section with computers, and a buffet to keep everyone full and satisfied. The buffet has menus for both kids and adults, cold and hot options, as well as exquisite wines from around the world to pair with any meal.
The lounge is accessible to those flying on Emirates in business and first class, those that are Skywards Platinum or Gold members, or Qantas Platinum or Gold members that are flying on Emirates. Get ready for 2019 because the airline promises to debut even more luxurious lounges for their premium passengers.
