Emirates New Lounge at Birmingham Airport

Emirates has shown its commitment to the region by opening a new £1.3 million lounge at Birmingham International Airport.

Situated in the new international pier in Terminal 1, the 7,000 square foot facility is the first dedicated lounge to be offered by a long-haul airline at the airport.

Mohammed Mattar, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president airport services, who officially opened the lounge yesterday, said: “This significant investment to our operation at Birmingham further highlights our commitment to the region and the importance of our twice-daily service from the Midlands.

“We hope our premium customers will enjoy this new facility next time they fly with us and look forward to experiencing our trademark attentive service for which we are renowned.”

Paul Kehoe, the Chief Executive Officer of the airport, told guests at the opening ceremony: “Emirates has been operating flights between Birmingham and Dubai for 10 years now and over this time it has provided a vital connection for the Midlands, not just to the Middle East but onwards to all corners of the globe.

“We are therefore delighted to see the opening of this stunning new facility in our new International Pier, which signifies a long-term commitment by the airline to Birmingham and the wider region.”

The Emirates Lounge offers the ultimate in comfort with luxury leather seating for up to 117 people, plasma TVs showing the latest news, a business centre with complimentary internet access and full shower facilities.

It’s the latest facility to open in Emirates’ £48 million worldwide lounge investment programme. The airline currently offers almost 800 seats a day from Birmingham to Dubai and beyond on its 2 daily flights.

Since it started operating from Birmingham a decade ago Emirates has been an ardent supporter of the airport. In September it helped it celebrate its 70th birthday by sending one of its Airbus A380’s in the first ever flight by the ‘superjumbo’ to a UK regional airport.
