With international travel bouncing back strongly, Emirates has announced it is reopening its Sydney, Melbourne and Perth lounges for eligible customers.

That’s great news for both Emirates and Qantas premium passengers and elite status holders, who will soon once again have access to these well-appointed spaces.

Emirates lounges can be enjoyed by Emirates customers in business and first class, as well as those with Skywards Gold status or higher.

Passengers travelling with Qantas in business or first class or those with Gold or higher status can also use an Emirates lounge, thanks to the partnership between the two airlines.

Emirates lounges have much better dining and amenities than Qantas International Business Lounges, and are definitely worth checking out if you’re flying with Qantas. (However, if you can get into the Qantas First Lounges in Sydney or Melbourne, they are certainly the top choices at these two airports.)
