British Airways’s latest Galleries Lounge in Dubai International Airport

Travel News 26 Feb 2016

British Airways has unveiled its prestigious new lounge at the newly built Concourse D in Dubai International Airport. 

The airline’s new concept lounge features a special Concorde Bar for those flying in First class.

The lounge has been designed to maximise space using architectural elements such as illuminated glass screens giving customers separate spaces to work, relax or dine, creating a calm and relaxing environment.

The new premium lounge has a large framed wall mirror that reflects the stunning feature lighting making a more spacious setting.

Customers can also choose from a selection of hot and cold food as well as enjoy fine wines at the Deli bar.

Overlooking the airport’s retail atrium, the lounge has been finished to a very high quality, complete with black Nero marble surfaces and European oak flooring.

Within the lounge, the new Concorde Bar provides an exclusive area for First customers and their guests to relax and unwind in a private environment before boarding their flight.

The new lounge has been carefully designed to showcase the best of British design and architecture, offering a stylish, quiet and relaxing space for premium customers.

It will also feature artwork from established Iraqi-born artist, Dia Al Azzawi, as well as Gulf heritage images from the British Airways archive. 

The new Dubai lounge is home to the airline’s second Concorde Bar, the first of which opened late last year in Singapore. 

First customers will be given a special entry card at reception for the private bar, which they simply swipe at an electronic reader to gain access.

Inside, they will be able to choose from a selection of fine wines and champagne before relaxing in the privacy of their own booth.

The lounge is open to British Airways’ First and Club World (business class) customers as well as Silver and Gold executive club members.
