Dubai – MENA Herald: Lufthansa passengers will now enjoy a more relaxing and comfortable stay at the airport as the airline opens today its bigger and better Business Class and Senator lounges at the new Concourse D, Departure Area, Terminal 1 of the Dubai International Airport, offering guests more room to feel at home.

The total 500 sqm facility is now available for Lufthansa, SWISS and Star Alliance passengers with Business Class tickets and Frequent Travellers cardholders (Business lounge), as well as guests with Miles & More flyer programme HON circle status, Senator and Star Gold cardholder, and First Class tickets (Senator lounge) so they can rest, dine, relax or freshen up in an exclusive comfort before boarding their flights.

On the official opening, Karsten Zang, Lufthansa’s Regional Director Gulf, I.R. Iran, Afghanistan & Pakistan, said: “We are very excited to inaugurate our Business Class and Senator Lounge here at Concourse D. Finally, we are able to provide a bigger and more spacious comfort zone for guests with our signature quality on-ground services. In 2015, we welcomed around 40,000 guests at our Senator Lounge in Concourse C. Now, with our new premium facility that has just been doubled in size, we expect to receive about 75,000 guests, 35,000 of whom would be first-time visitors to our Business Class lounge. We are proud of the multi-million Euro investments we made to build this new lounge knowing that our passengers will have the comfort they deserve while waiting for their flights.”

Guests who wish to freshen up will find showers and washrooms in the lounge and the extensive selection of food and beverages at the bistro will fortify them with fresh delicacies every time. For guests who wish to catch up on reading or work, the comfortable sitting areas are furnished with stylish leather armchairs and the modern work stations have free Wi-Fi access. Guests can also sit back and relax in the cosy recliners.

“The new Business Class and Senator Lounges highlight our premium strategy – the design and the services provided are reflective of the highest standards of quality and of Lufthansa’s consistent commitment to superior customer service. It is quite apt that our modern lounge would also be located at the opulent Concourse D of the Dubai International Airport,” said Dr. Björn Becker, Director Product Management Airport & Passenger Services.

From March 2, all Lufthansa passengers will be using Concourse D which is easily accessible to departing passengers via the airport’s Skytrain from the check-in area in Terminal 1.
