Emirates' first and business class lounges at Dubai International Airport have been voted among the best airport lounges worldwide, in an online survey by the UK's Skytrax Research.
Emirates' facilities came a close second to Cathay Pacific Airways' lounge at Hong Kong International Airport in the survey for the Airport Lounge of the Year 2002, which attracted a total of 711,245 votes.
Meanwhile, the airline has opened a new lounge for its special customers at Dubai airport.
