Emirates opens new lounge for young flyers at DXB

Unaccompanied minors travelling from or transiting through Dubai can access the new facilities

Young passengers travelling without their guardians on Emirates can now wait for their flights in a dedicated upgraded lounge at Dubai International Airport.

Located next to Emirates’ First Class Lounge in Concourse B, the lounge is open 24/seven and offers video games, comfortable seating, free wi-fi, snacks and washrooms designed for kids.


Parents or guardians who have pre-booked Emirates’ Unaccompanied Minor service, can drop off their young flyers at Dubai Airport Terminal 3, where Emirates’ airport team will check them in for their flights in a lounge area located in between the economy and business class check-in halls.

Young flyers are then escorted through immigration and security to their dedicated departure lounge and later, from the lounge to the boarding gate where they have priority boarding.

Emirates’ services for unaccompanied minors must be booked in advance of travel and are available for children aged from five to 11 who are travelling without an adult. Though not mandatory, the service can also be booked for young travellers between 12 and 15 years of age.
