Emirates Opens New Lounge for Young Flyers

Emirates has announced that it has opened a newly upgraded lounge dedicated for young travelers at Dubai International Airport, located next to Emirates’ First Class Lounge in Concourse B. Emirates’ lounge for unaccompanied minors is open 24/7, and the newly upgraded facility offers video games, beverages and snacks, comfortable seating areas, free Wi-Fi and washrooms designed for children.

Parents or guardians who have pre-booked the airline’s Unaccompanied Minor service can drop off their young flyers at Dubai Airport Terminal 3, where Emirates’ airport team will check them in for their flights in a special lounge area for unaccompanied minors. This facility is located in between the Economy and First/Business Class check-in halls. Once the check-in formalities are over, one of Emirates’ airport services team members will escort the young flyers through immigration and security, onward to their dedicated departure lounge in the airside concourse, and later, from the lounge to the boarding gate.

Young flyers enjoy priority boarding, and Emirates cabin crew will be at hand to welcome young flyers at the aircraft door, and help them to find their seats and settle in for their flight. On-board, young flyers will be offered meals and snacks designed for their palates, toys and activity packs, and kid-sized headsets to enjoy the selection of over 50 Disney movies and 130 plus TV channels. The airline is offering young flyers take-home toys and bags on-board. All toys and bags use recycled material and bags are made from 100 percent recycled plastic bottles.

Then, the airline’s ground services team will meet and escort the flyers from their flight to one of the dedicated lounges for unaccompanied minors, while they wait for their next flight.

Emirates’ services for unaccompanied minors must be booked in advance of travel and are available for children from five to 11 years of age, who are traveling without an adult. The service can also be booked for young travelers between 12 and 15 years.
