Posted 26 November 2020 · Add Comment

Emirates is re-opening its lounges around the world beginning with the Emirates lounge in Cairo International Airport.

 

The airline said it has redesigned its lounge offering and introduced additional health and safety measures. The new protocols will be rolled out in each lounge.

 

The airline said: “The buffet offering will be changed to an a la carte service with contactless menus activated by QR code. Throughout the day, lounge staff will sanitise each seat and table after customers leave. In addition, the lounge will be sanitised and fumigated regularly.

 

“All employees working in the lounge will be wearing masks and social distancing protocols are in place throughout the lounge. Seating capacity will be halved as every other sofa seat is left unoccupied. To ensure food safety, catering staff will be wearing masks, gloves and personal protective equipment (PPE). Newspaper, magazines and other reading materials will not be available to minimise the risk of infection by touch.”
