LONDON – Emirates has opened a lounge at Dubai International Airport for unaccompanied minors.
The newly upgraded facility offers video games, drinks and snacks, seating areas, free wi-fi, and washrooms designed for kids. The space is open 24/7 and is located next to Emirates’ First-Class Lounge in Concourse B.
Parents or guardians who have pre-booked the 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 lounge area for unaccompanied minors.
This facility is located in between the Economy and First/Business Class Check-in halls.
Young flyers enjoy priority boarding, and the Emirates cabin crew will be waiting to welcome them at the aircraft door and help them to find their seats and settle in for their flight.
Emirates is currently offering young flyers take-home toys and bags on board, inspired by EXPO 2020 Dubai.
All toys and bags use recycled material and bags are made from 100 percent recycled plastic bottles.
Services for unaccompanied minors must be booked in advance of travel and are available for children from 5 to 11 years of age, who are traveling without an adult.
The service can also be booked for young travelers between 12 and 15 years old.
