The fresh design has the same attention to detail as the other Emirates’ lounges throughout the world, where guests can enjoy an array of luxurious facilities and amenities that include LED TVs, comfortable leather armchairs, a choice of formal and relaxed seating, a quiet area, a dining area, shower facilities, business centre, water feature and bespoke artworks.

First Class and Business Class passengers can also take advantage of an exclusive private chauffeur drive service from Milan Malpensa Airport, a service that has been extended up to 100 km from the airport (it was previously 60 km) in order to guarantee maximum comfort to customers.
