Emirates’ premium and loyal customers travelling from Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport can now look forward to greater levels of comfort and convenience, with the opening of the airline’s new lounge.

All Emirates’ First Class and Business Class customers, as well as Skywards Platinum and Gold members, travelling on the airline’s two flights a day from Rome to Dubai will have complimentary access to the new facility, which replaces the old lounge and is now located in a more convenient area of the airport terminal.

The lounge, which was officially opened today, is situated in departure Terminal 3, Level 2, close to gates E22-E24. Its new location offers views over the runway and a direct boarding facility onto the aircraft. It has nearly 950 square metres of floor space and seats 162 customers comfortably.
