Business lounge at new MRU airport?

Hi!
Wonder if anyone knows if there will be a dedicated EK 1st/business lounge in the new MRU airport which has just opened in the past week?
Many thanks.

I'm going on the 1st November I will let you know!

With the plan of a 380 daily plus a 777 I would have thought an EK lounge is in plan.

I used it on the first day it opened: last Thursday the 12th. There isn't a dedicated Emirates lounge at MRU so we were directed to the brand new Air Mauritius lounge at the new terminal.

It's quite nice for a third-party lounge.

Enjoy!

Oh well, looking forward to it in any case. Thanks for that.
Pandor - can you answer another question please? How early can one check in for the flight? We might have to get there early which is fine if we check in and get to the lounge but if they only open check-in 2 or 3 hours beforehand may re-think what time we get t the airport.
