New gaming lounge opens at Dubai International Airport
Dubai International Airport (DXB) is now home to the region’s first airport gaming lounge concept with the opening of Game Space earlier this week.
The unique space is set to further enhance travellers’ experience at the world’s busiest international airport.
Offering a novel alternative to the normal pre-flight routine of travellers, Game Space is located in the heart of DXB Family Zone at B Gates in Terminal 3.
The space features 40 game stations, each of which boast 50” screens and side-by-side seating for either solo or multi-player gaming.
With 20 leading game titles available to play at the lounge, including Fortnite, League of Legends, Gran Turismo 7, Crash Bandicoot and more, there are options to suit every taste and preference.
Dubai Airports’ executive president of commercial, Eugene Barry, says: “We are delighted to partner with Game Space to launch this new gaming lounge for our global guests, which adds an exciting new element to our existing range of retail, food and hospitality partnerships across the airport.”
Game Space will be open 24/7, so the fun will be non-stop. Food and drink options are also available, making it the perfect place to unwind.
Access to Game Space is available to all travellers for a fee. Priority Pass, the world’s largest independent airport lounge and experiences program will also provide game time for their members. Other card membership programmes will soon be available at the space.
“We know that gaming is incredibly popular in the region and Game Space will allow travellers to change their waiting time at the airport into their gaming time,” noted said Errol McGlothan, co-director at Game Space.
