Emirates will reopen airport lounges outside of its home base of Dubai International, with additional health and safety measures in place. The carrier reopened its Terminal 3, Concourse B Dubai lounge in July, but the vast majority of the airline’s lounges have remained closed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Emirates said its facility at Cairo International Airport would be the first to reopen, followed by lounges at New York JFK and Manchester Airport “in the coming weeks.” The carrier’s Heathrow lounge is located at Terminal 3, which remains closed until further notice. The airline said it had redesigned its lounge offering with additional health and safety measures that include a la carte dining and contactless menus activated by QR codes replacing the normal buffet service. According to the carrier, lounge staff will sanitize each seat and table after customers leave. In addition, the lounge will be sanitized and fumigated regularly.
