Dublin Airport Opens New Departure Lounge for U.S.-Bound Passengers
The Dublin Airport Authority announced the opening of a new departure lounge specifically for those passengers traveling to the United States. The lounge, 51st&Green, is located beyond the U.S. border preclearance facility that allows U.S.-bound passengers to complete all immigration, customs, and agriculture inspections before the flight.
The lounge is “the closest airport lounge to an active runway” in the world, the airport said in a statement. It seats 180 and offers a variety of edibles including Irish cuisine with an American twist.
Visitors to the 8,000-square-foot (743-square-meter) lounge have a choice of areas intended for work, relaxation, play, or dining.
The lounge fee is €39 (roughly $44) per person. Passengers traveling with Aer Lingus, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines in business class, as well as those with higher-level status with many frequent flyer programs will enjoy complimentary access.
