British Airways has announced the opening of its brand new lounge at Dubai International Airport's Concourse D facility.

The exclusive lounge is available for British Airways' First and Club World (business class) customers, and Silver and Gold executive club members, who are travelling to and from Dubai.

First Class passengers will have access to the private Concorde Bar, where they can enjoy fine wines and Champagnes, among other beverages, in comfortable private booths.

"Our premium customers flying from Dubai will be able to enjoy the airline's newest lounge, featuring the exclusive luxury of the Concorde Bar for First customers."

Stated Troy Warfield, the Director of Customer Experience at British Airways, he continued:

"Our designers have created a contemporary and stylish space for Club World and First customers to relax, dine and refresh before boarding their flight to Heathrow."

All guests to the lounge will be able to relax in the Deli bar, and savour hot and cold food, and a selection of beverages. The illuminated glass walls offer privacy for guests while they dine or work, and the large framed wall mirror helps create spacious setting. Mr Warfield also explained:

"We have also ensured that, for the first time, every single customer has access to power and USB points throughout the new lounge to re-charge their personal electronic devices."

The lounge feature British design and architecture, as well as artwork from Iraqi-born artist, Dia Al Azzawi, and Gulf heritage photographs from the archive a British Airways.

Concourse D is a brand new facility at Dubai International Airport (DXB) that will increase the airport's capacity from 75 million to 90 million passengers a year.

The $1.2 billion facility is linked to the renovated Terminal 1 via a dedicated airport train, and with 32 gates, it will be occupied by more than 100 airlines including British Airways and Royal Jordanian.

British Airways was the first carrier to use Concourse D, with a flight from London arriving at the airport earlier this month. Dubai International Airport is one of the world's busiest airport, and in 2015 it recorded more than 78 million international visitors.
