Emirates Airline launches exclusive lounge at Los Angeles International Airport

Holding its passengers close to its heart with their best interests and wellbeing in mind, Emirates Airline has inaugurated its brand new lounge at Los Angeles International Airport, exclusively for first and business class customers as well as Platinum and Gold members of Emirates Skywards.

This brand new addition, representing the 37th lounge in its portfolio, forms part of a $6.2 million investment to provide a seamless and comfortable experience to its premium clientele.

Marking this prestigious opening was a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony, attended by Mohammed Mattar, divisional senior vice president airport services, Emirates Airline and Barry Rondinella, director of operations, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), among others.

“Our third dedicated airport lounge in the US underpins our commitment to providing our premium customers with a great travel experience, and delivering on the high standards they have come to expect from Emirates Airline,” Matter noted.

“A nod to the Golden Age of air travel, the new lounge design is inspired by the understated luxury of our lounges in Dubai’s Concourse A, and is reflective of the discerning tastes of our premium customers.”

The sparkling new Emirates Lounge, situated in the Tom Bradley International Terminal, boasts seating for up to 157 customers and covers an area of 840m². 

Facilities and amenities include a terrace view, LED TVs, comfortable leather armchairs, a choice of formal and relaxed seating, a dining area featuring a range of tasty global cuisines, shower facilities and a business centre, all complemented by intriguing artwork which is carefully placed around the facility. 

“We pay great attention to detail, from the on-ground experience, to the on-board product and service. Before they even board the plane, premium customers enjoy exclusive chauffeur drive service, dedicated airport check-in counters, and luxurious lounge facilities – this is part of our philosophy, to deliver uncompromised quality,” Mattar concluded.
