Emirates Airlines is continuing to open lounges, and has opened a new lounge at Glasgow Airport.
The Emirates Glasgow lounge has the classic Emirates look, with Italian marble floors, gold Rolex clocks, brown leather armchairs and heavy dark mahogany furniture, in line with the worldwide Emirates lounge design.
A small lounge, it is designed for the twice-a-day flights to Dubai, and Emirates becomes the only non-domestic airline to operate a lounge at Glasgow Airport.
The Emirates Glasgow lounge seats 139 passengers in an area of 745 square yards. There are large floor to ceiling windows with runway views, and is just five minutes' walk from Emirates' boarding point at gate 30.
There is the usual buffet in the lounge, but with a Glasgow twist: no fried mars bars, however the lounge will showcase high end Scottish products.
There is a full self-serve bar too, plus a small business centre with free in lounge wifi, a Television (usually showing BBC News Channel), a reading area, a shower, and a prayer room.
The Glasgow Emirates lounge is open to First Class and Business Class passengers as well as Emirates Platinum and Gold Skywards members, and Gold and Platinum members of Qantas' Frequent Flyer scheme.
The Emirates Glasgow lounge becomes the 36th lounge in Emirates' network and its 14th lounge in Europe.
Emirates is the first international airline to open a dedicated lounge at Glasgow Airport and marks the airline 10th year of service to the Scottish city.
"Our new Emirates Lounge at Glasgow, the largest at the airport, represents a significant Euro 2.6 million direct investment," said Emirates Airline President Sir Tim Clark. "We have seen passenger numbers grow as we progressively developed our services and invested in Glasgow. The lounge opening today is a testament to the success of our double daily operation. It will be an unrivalled premium airport experience for our passengers travelling to popular destinations, including Bangkok, Perth, Sydney, and Singapore via our hub in Dubai."
