Reflecting the airline’s ongoing commitment to Egypt, the Emirates Lounge in Cairo represents a US$ 3.6 million investment to provide premium customers with a seamless and enjoyable journey. Catering to three daily flights, the lounge offers customers even greater levels of comfort, hospitality and convenience as they start their Emirates experience in Cairo.
Located at Departure Terminal 2, Level 2, above the secondary security check & Duty Free area, Emirates’ customers can look forward to relaxing, unwinding and enjoying award-winning service and cuisine.
“Cairo is our first destination in North Africa with an Emirates Lounge – and it underscores our relentless efforts to enhance the travel experience that we offer to customers not online in the air, but on the ground," said Mohammed Mattar – Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates Airport Services. "We are committed to the highest standards of quality in every aspect of our business and the new Emirates Lounge is a testament to that.”

Emirates’ reputation of excellence and high service standards will definitely reflect on the type of tourist visiting the country from the UAE and the world. We are committed to supporting such initiatives that help Egypt achieve its vision of becoming a leading destination for tourism.”
The lounge features a dedicated dining area, an extensive menu of complimentary hot and cold gourmet buffet, including local and international dishes and an extensive beverage service.
