Emirates has opened its refurbished lounge at Suvarnabhumi Airport for First Class and Business Class passengers, as well as Platinum and Gold members of Emirates Skywards.

The 516-sqm lounge can now accommodate up to 136 passengers, and features a new, contemporary design with the same attention to detail as the other Emirates’ lounges throughout the world.

Roughly US$ 1 million (c. THB 30 million) was invested in the refurbishment.

“The refurbishment of this lounge is an integral part of our premium product and service strategy. We’ve invested to provide our premium passengers with an exclusive area to rest and refresh while travelling. Suvarnabhumi Airport Lounge is in a new design that reflects the modern style of the Emirates lounges at Dubai’s Concourse A, the world’s largest A380 hub,” said Jabr Al-Azeeby, Emirates’ Area Manager of Thailand and Indochina.

The new Suvanabhumi Airport Lounge provides travellers with LED TVs, comfortable leather armchairs, a choice of formal and relaxed seating, a quiet area, dining area, prayer room, shower facilities, business centre, water feature and bespoke artworks.

Emirates currently operates 42 weekly flights to Bangkok with three A380 flights daily. The airline has been operating its flagship Airbus A380 on the Bangkok-Dubai and Bangkok-Hong Kong route since 2009 and reinforced its commitment to Thailand with the launch of a daily direct flight to Phuket in December 2012.

Nujanart Tam, Airport Services Manager – Bangkok, said, “Our capacity to Bangkok has increased significantly every year and our commitment to the country has also grown. Approximately 300 premium customers are expected to use the lounge on a daily basis. With this new lounge, our passengers will be able to enjoy an extensive menu of complimentary hot and cold gourmet buffet and an extensive beverage service. The lounge offers a relaxing ambience for our premium clientele.”

Of the 35 existing lounges on the Emirates network, 24 lounges that are in the current design will all be refurbished in a phased plan.
