Arabian Travel Market 2017: Emirates to debut new Airbus A380 on-board lounge

Emirates will debut its new A380 on-board lounge at the Infinite Possibilities stand in its home-base of Dubai at the 2017 edition of the Arabian Travel Market.

Along with the newly enhanced A380 lounge, Emirates will also showcase its Boeing 777 Business Class seat, along with other iconic products such as the First Class Suite, First Class Shower Spa and the latest version of its generously-pitched Economy Class seats.

Visitors will also be able to experience the Emirates network through an interactive touch screen route map, and can immerse themselves with Arsenal Football Club training at Emirates Stadium, and in the Emirates First Class Lounge at Dubai Airport through specially designed virtual reality pods.

Thierry Antinori, Emirates executive vice president and chief commercial officer said: “ATM is a key well-established event on the global travel exhibition calendar where the international travel and hospitality industry converges in our home-base of Dubai to explore networking prospects and generate business growth opportunities. 

“It is also a perfect platform for us to showcase our new product innovations; including our hugely popular A380 on-board lounge, and we look forward to highlighting its newly enhanced features to the travel trade and wider industry within our interactive Infinite Possibilities stand. 

“At the same time, we welcome the opportunity to cultivate deeper relationships with our partners in the travel industry, while creating new partnerships that will help us secure a successful future.”

The enhanced A380 lounge on display at the Emirates Infinite Possibilities stand will offer visitors a chance to experience its airier look, innovative lighting concepts, new seating area, and well as its trademark horse-shoe shaped bar which sports an updated look. 

Inspired by private yacht cabins, each seating area on Emirates’ A380 on-board lounge will have a table and window view.

Overall, the lounge will comfortably accommodate up to 26 passengers at a time, including 8 seated.

The enhanced lounge product will make its operational debut in July 2017.

Throughout 2017, Emirates will launch a series of new cabin products and enhancements for its A380 and Boeing 777 fleet.

The Emirates Infinite Possibilities stand is located in Hall 3, stand number UAE 3310 at Arabian Travel Market, which takes place from April 24th-27th.
