For many of Emirates’ own premium travellers and loyal frequent flyers travelling, or perhaps just transiting through Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci – Fiumicino Airport will now be able to sit back, relax and unwind before their onwards flight to Dubai. With Emirates investing in over USD $4.5 million in a new lounge facility in Rome, the doors are now open to their new lounge and it can be found on the departures level near Gates E22 – E24.
The new Emirates Lounge offers spectacular views overlooking the runway and departure gates as well as allowing customers to board directly onto the aircraft from the lounge. There is more than enough space to cater for the two daily flights which depart Rome for Dubai each day. The lounge has enough room to seat 162 guests over the massive 950 square meters of floor space.
Eligibility and access to the lounge is provided complimentary to passengers travelling in the First and Business Class cabin, as well as Emirates’ own Skywards Platinum and Gold members. Qantas Frequent Flyers holding Gold, Platinum and Platinum One should all be allowed to access the lounge when travelling as per the Qantas and Emirates partnership. Passengers must be travelling on one of the Emirates operated flights that depart each day from Rome to Dubai, EK96 and EK98. If you are an Emirates Skywards Silver or Blue member you can still access the lounge, but you would need to pay to gain entry.
The lounge has been constructed to Emirates’ high design standards giving guests a fresh new look and feel to the lounge experience. Luxurious amenities within the lounge include Large LED TV’s, comfortable leather arm chairs, choice of formal or relaxed seating, dining area, prayer room, shower facilities, business centre and bespoke artworks throughout.
Guests in the lounge can also enjoy an extensive range of food from the hot and cold buffet, including a range of Italian and roman specialities, seasonal options as well as a fine selection of international wines, champagne and spirits from the bar. There is even a kids menu on offer for the youngsters in the lounge.
Emirates has invested over USD $4.5 million into upgrading the lounge at Rome International airport and it reassures the airlines commitment to providing customers with a premium service as well as comfort and convenience in all aspects of the journey.
“The Rome airport lounge brings [the number] to 42 Emirates lounges, making it one of the largest airline networks of lounges across the board, and we will continue to open new ones and refurbish others” Said Mohammed Matter, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President.
The Middle Eastern carrier will continue to serve Rome with two daily flights. Emirates also offers its own complimentary chauffeur drive service in Rome for First and Business Class customers, dedicated check in counters as well as award winning on board service. The airlines premium customers can enjoy a seamless and comfortable journey from the moment they start their travel until they arrive at their destination.
