Emirates yesterday inaugurated its VIP Lounge at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
The 375sqm lounge, modelled on the cabin design of a Boeing 777 – which serves the Dubai-Madrid route – can host around 200 exclusive guests on match days.
Guests can relax before, during and after games in comfortable seats, consume food and beverages and watch the action on large plasma screens. The facility is expected to attract 6,000 guests every season.
Four months ago the airline signed a five-year shirt sponsorship with Real Madrid.
Emirates currently offers 21 weekly flights to Spain – a double daily flight to Madrid and a daily flight to Barcelona, which will be upgraded to an A380 from February 1 2014.
