Starting in June, Dubai-based Emirates Airlines will be offering hookah lounges to business and first-class passengers travelling long-haul aboard the company’s A380 fleet.
The hookah lounge will come as an addition to the airline’s already luxurious offerings that include their signature spa and onboard lounges. The company says it will allow Middle Eastern customers to get a taste of home while flying Emirates, and provide passengers on their first trip to the Middle East a chance to experience a true taste of Arabia.
Passengers can order a shisha pipe from the onboard menu and then move to the shisha lounge after finishing their main meal. If the pilot proves successful, the airline says it should be able to offer shisha services on all of it’s A380s by the end of the year.
