Emirates has unveiled its 42nd dedicated lounge across its global network at Cairo International Airport (CAI) in Egypt. The lounge is open to Emirates first class and business class customers, and platinum and gold members of the airline’s loyalty program Skywards.
The new opening represents a US$3.6m investment to provide premium customers with a high standard customer experience. Located at departure terminal 2 level 2 – above the secondary security check and duty-free area – the lounge caters to its passengers flying on three daily flights.
The lounge spans 880m², offering seating for up to 152 passengers. It features LED TVs, comfortable leather armchairs, a choice of formal and relaxed seating, bespoke artwork, luxury spa products, and separate male and female prayer rooms.
The new space also has a dining area, a menu of complimentary hot and cold gourmet buffet food including local and international dishes, and an extensive beverage service. Customers can also enjoy shower facilities, a fully equipped business center with touchscreen workstations, and wi-fi.
Mohammed Mattar, divisional senior vice president, Emirates Airport Services, said, “Cairo is our first destination in North Africa with an Emirates Lounge – and it underscores our relentless efforts to enhance the travel experience that we offer to customers not online in the air, but on the ground.
“We are committed to the highest standards of quality in every aspect of our business and the new Emirates Lounge is a testament to that.
“We hope to contribute to the country’s tourism industry in a meaningful way and attract both international customers as well as discerning Egyptian travelers with our premium service.
“Egypt is a very important market for Emirates, and this dedicated lounge demonstrates our ongoing efforts to provide the best possible airport experience.”
