Emirates reinstates onboard lounge and spa

Emirates has resumed the operation of its A380 Onboard Lounge and Shower Spa, with additional health and safety measures in place.

From November 1, Emirates' onboard dining experience will also return with new strict hygiene protocols.

Customers in all cabins will enjoy multi-course meals and be able to choose from a complimentary selection of beverages including wine, beer, juices and soft drinks.

The A380 Onboard Lounge, which serves First and Business customers, will transform into a takeaway bar with limited seating capacity and social distancing. The bar will continue to serve wines, spirits, soft drinks and pre-packaged lounge bites for customers to enjoy in their cabin seats. Customers will also be able to place orders from their seats.

Emirates has also enhanced its in-flight offering for the winter season with the introduction of a vegan, nutrient-rich welcome drink called Vitality Boost. Available in First and Business, the drink was created by the airline's chefs and nutritionists to give customers a health kick on their journey.

Meanwhile, the Emirates app has been enhanced to allow customers onboard to browse the menus on their personal devices both online and offline.
