Aer Lingus is revamping their lounge at Dublin Airport, and this was expected to be open in early 2021. Non-essential travel abroad for those living in Ireland is going to be permitted from 19 July, so perhaps the lounge will also open at that time. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of what is inside.
The original lounge opened when Terminal 2 was commissioned in late 2010 and had remained virtually unchanged since. It was surpassed in quality by the 51st & Green Lounge operated by Dublin Airport, which is available to those passengers travelling on transatlantic flights only.
A Sneak Peek Inside
Someone decided to take two pictures of the lounge, presumably through the glass in the entrance doors to the lounge. It gives a little bit of a taster as to what is going to come.
First up, it appears there are individual seats with a table between them, with power ports for device charging. In fact, they remind me of the setup in the British Airways lounges at London Heathrow.
Regardless of the trolley in the way, the floor seems to be similar to before, as well as the blinds. The green divider is interesting and not at all surprising as there’s always a green something when it comes to Aer Lingus!
It remains to be seen what the new Aer Lingus lounge in Dublin looks like. The sneak peek doesn’t give much away, but at least it looks like it might be ready soon.
Let’s hope for some better food options, as apart from the soup, the offering was below par when it came to an airline’s flagship lounge at their home base. Either way, after 10 years, any change will be refreshing.
