Emirates has one of the widest networks of airport lounges in the world, which is particularly impressive given the volume of Emirates flights departing from many of these lounge locations. Emirates Lounges can be accessed by Emirates first and business class passengers, as well as Skywards Gold and Platinum members flying with Emirates. At locations where an Emirates is not available, these passengers will often have access to third party lounges. In Dubai, Emirates has different lounges for business and first class passengers. As a result of their partnerships with Qantas, Qantas' premium passengers can gain access to Emirates Lounges under certain conditions, and vice versa. Currently, Emirates has made paid access available at many of their locations.
In addition to purchasing lounge access with LoungeBuddy, there are a number of ways travelers can get airport lounge access around the world.
