Emirates’ premium and loyal Australian customers travelling from Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport can now look forward to greater levels of comfort and convenience, with the opening of the airline’s new lounge.
All Emirates’ First Class and Business Class customers, as well as Skywards Platinum and Gold members, travelling on the airline’s two flights a day from Rome to Dubai will have complimentary access to the new facility, which replaces the old lounge and is now located in a more convenient area of the airport terminal.
The lounge, which was officially opened last month, is situated in departure Terminal 3, Level 2, close to gates E22-E24. Its new location offers views over the runway and a direct boarding facility onto the aircraft. It has nearly 950 square metres of floor space and seats 162 customers comfortably. Emirates Skywards Silver and Skywards Blue customers, can enjoy the lounge with paid access.
Built to the latest interior design standards for Emirates lounges worldwide, it has a contemporary design and a fresh look and feel, featuring amenities and facilities which include LED TVs, comfortable leather armchairs, a choice of formal and relaxed seating, a dining area, a prayer room, shower facilities, business centre and bespoke artworks. Australians are also able to enjoy an extensive complimentary hot and cold buffet, including a variety of Italian and Roman specialities, seasonal options, and a fine selection of international wines and beverages. A Kids menu is also available for our younger guests.
“The new lounge represents an investment of over USD 4.5 million (approximately AUD $6.3 million) by Emirates, and is an integral part of our focus to provide our premium and loyal customers with the highest levels of comfort and convenience, not just in the air, but also on the ground. The new Rome airport lounge brings to 42 the number of Emirates’ lounges, making it one of the largest airline networks of lounges across the world, and we’ll continue to open new ones and refurbish others,” said Mohammed Mattar, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Airport Services.
Coupled with Emirates’ complimentary chauffeur drive service in Rome for Australian First and Business Class customers, dedicated check-in counters, as well as award winning on-board service, the airline’s premium customers enjoy a seamless and comfortable journey from the moment they start their travel until they arrive at their destination.
