The Qatar Airways Dubai Premium Lounge is situated near Gate 15 in Dubai International Airport’s Concourse D. First and Business Class passengers, as well as Privilege Club Platinum and Gold members, are encouraged to enjoy the lounge’s facilities, which are set within a modern and a sophisticated space for travellers to relax and rejuvenate before their journey.
Decorated with artistic Arabic calligraphy, Mediterranean-style tiles and calming water fountains, the Dubai Premium Lounge features private family zones, shower facilities, spacious seating areas and serves fresh international cuisine.
With its new Premium Lounge offering, Qatar Airways is cementing its presence in Dubai and providing passengers travelling between Qatar and the emirate with an exclusive retreat while waiting in the ultra-modern Concourse D. Presently, Qatar Airways flies 133 times weekly to Dubai’s two airports, with 15 flights daily from Doha to Dubai International Airport.
The opening of the Qatar Airways Dubai Premium Lounge coincided with the Arabian Travel Market, at which the airline hosted visitors in its state-of-the-art exhibition stand. At the stand, visitors could experience the signature elements which all travel and tourism professionals want to see and experience, such as Business Class and First Class seat displays, as well as new features including an interactive global route network display and a holographic A350 model controlled through with ‘swipe’ or ‘gesture’ technology. The airline’s latest brand campaign theme ‘Going Places Together’ was the core theme of Qatar Airways’ participation, reflected in the redesign and activities, with the focus on bringing travellers closer together.
