Emirates at the Australian Open

In a first for the airline and one of the most spectacularly stylish attempts at corporate hospitality at an event the size of the Australian Open, Emirates has partnered with Tennis Australia to bring its guests as close to the action in the comfort of an A380 aircraft as possible.

Emirates are celebrating their first year as official airline partners of the Emirates Australian Open Series by taking hospitality to new heights.

In what has proven to be a purely luxurious escape for guests of tournament, the Emirates Suite is a 10×15 slice of aircraft-inspired bliss, featuring prominently the Emirates colours and luxe touches such as silk wallpaper and plush cushions.

Alongside the world renowned service of the Emirates hostesses, the Suite is offering guests a pamper lounge manned by expert therapists from the One & Only Hayman Island Spa, Pimms, champagne and juices as well as its own unique Emirates-inspired cocktail the Ginger Deuce and an extensive menu by head chef Markus Werner.

With a modern Australian flair to the spread, Werner has heroed international fusion dishes to reflect on Emirates airlines’ expanding global route network. Morsels like marinated calamari, Australian oysters, Queensland blue swimmer crab, Australian BBQ platters and local dessert favourites such as mini lamingtons, pavlova, and traditional Australian cheese, you know it’s good.

The two terraces with stunning vistas of Melbourne’s Yarra River will cater to alfresco dining and feature balustrades containing more than 600 hand-painted red and white tennis balls.

Game on!
