Dublin Airport has launched a new lounge for business and first-class passengers travelling with Emirates, Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines.

Known as East Lounge, the premier facility is located past the security screening area between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “We are very excited to open this dedicated lounge for business and first-class passengers travelling eastwards.

“East Lounge is an oasis of calm, offering customers the space to relax, to dine or to work before boarding their flight. The concept and design of the lounge has a uniquely Irish feel, which is warm and welcoming with fantastic views of the airfield and Dublin mountains.”

The lounge features an Ogham-inspired alphabet as its logo and its interior design supports the ‘east meeting west’ concept.

The lounge offers users contemporary Irish food and drink, hospitality and design. It features ‘Kilkenny limestone and Connemara marble’ and ‘Delaney’s Bespoke Furniture’.

It is also equipped with work and relaxation bar and dining areas, with a capacity to accommodate up to 86 guests.

Harrison added: “The lounge design and ethos fits in beautifully with our Sense of Place Project, which provides passengers flying to Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Hong Kong and Istanbul a last opportunity to enjoy Irish art, culture, design, food and beverage at the airport before they depart.”

The airport recorded a 7% increase in passenger traffic between January and August this year. It serves 53 airlines with flights to over 200 destinations in 43 countries.
