Getting there

Reach your gate with ease

Move seamlessly between the gates on the underground train – the first of its kind in the Middle East. It offers a fast and smooth connection for travellers from the new Emirates A380 hub to the main departures area and other gates.

Hotel and spa

Relax and rejuvenate while you wait

If you prefer the privacy of your own room, the dedicated airside hotel near the A Gates has 32 five-star and 170 four-star rooms for when you are transiting. There is also a Timeless Spa where you can visit the hairdresser or book a pampering treatment.

Multi-level boarding

Board with ease

For smoother and faster boarding there are three jetways connecting each gate to the aircraft. If you are travelling in First Class or Business Class, you can step straight on board the upper-deck cabins from your lounge.
