Emirates' news

Young travellers flying Emirates as unaccompanied minors can now relax and wait for their flight in an upgraded lounge dedicated for them at Dubai International Airport, located next to Emirates’ First Class lounge in Concourse B.  Emirates’ lounge for unaccompanied minors is open 24/7.

The lounge offers fun video games, drinks and snacks, comfortable seating areas, free wi-fi, and washrooms designed for kids.
Parents or guardians who have pre-booked Emirates’ 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 area.
After check-in formalities are completed, one of Emirates’ friendly 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.  Once on board they can look forward to children’s packs, and kid-sized headsets to enjoy the selection of over 50 Disney movies and 130+ TV channels for young travellers. Emirates is also currently offering young flyers cool take-home toys and bags onboard.

Young solo flyers with a connecting flight in Dubai are also well cared for while in transit. Emirates’ ground services team will meet and escort them to the lounge or gate if time is short.

In another move the airline has doubled its Gatwick frequency taking its UK weekly flights to 91. Emirates currently offers a six times daily A380 Heathrow service, double daily A380 flights to Manchester, a ten-weekly service to Birmingham, a daily service to Glasgow, a four-weekly service to Newcastle and now a double daily service to Gatwick.
