Emirates installs Qi wireless charging trays in its Dubai lounges

Emirates Airlines announced that it has starting rolling out QI wireless charging trays in its First Class and Business Class lounges. The initial rollout will see 30 wireless charging trays installed in the airline's lounges in Dubai.

From Emirates:

Travellers can experience the convenience of wireless charging throughout the lounges where the chargers are located in highly visible locations and can accommodate up to two phones at a time. This new offering is another step in Emirates' strategic plan to offer greater mobility and connectivity to its customers.

And there you have it. While the initial rollout is fairly limited, hopefully this is the start of a trend for airport lounges around the world. If you happen to own a QI-enabled Windows Phone and find yourself in an Emirates lounge in Dubai, you'll now be able to more easily top off your charge before your flight.
