Which Lounge In DXB

I have an upcoming Turkish Airlines flight which used to give access to the Ahlan Lounge when T1 was open. Now since all departures are from T3, which lounge would Turkish (or other) business passengers get access to? I guess Marhaba in Concourse B?

In that case, I'd probably opt for Lounge @ B instead with Priority Pass/LoungeKey instead or, as has been the case during the pandemic, arrive last minute & avoid lounges all together. Still curious though.

Why? One of the very first posts on that exact thread was about a flight with Swiss. This question isnít exactly about TK, but more about DXB and it also applies to Singapore airlines and any other airline which would normally send their J passengers to Ahlan Lounge in DXB.

Are you sure T1 is not open?

In normal cases, queries regarding airports ( if it's not regarding a specific airline ) are discussed at the relevant destination forum rather than the forum of the airline that uses the airport as a hub. So anything related to DXB ( not airline specific ) should be posted in the "Middle East" forum rather than the EK forum. Same applies for IST when the query is irrespective with TK; that's why we have threads related to IST in the "Europe" forum.

For your question regarding TK, I am not 100% sure about DXB, but for most outstations, TK didn't make arrangements with alternative lounges during the change of their operating terminal or when their originally contracted lounge is closed. Plus, there is no official page on the TK website that states outstation contract lounges so unless someone has flown this route recently, it would be impossible to get data.

In that post you have referenced, the poster asked about paying for EK Lounge access. ISTFlyer has very kindly explained below (and above) where it is best to post specific questions about airlines or airports.
As your post was specifically about TK lounge provisions at an outstation, this is the forum with the best chance of an accurate answer.

My post was specifically about lounges for "Turkish (or other) business passengers" and I would argue that there are a lot more users on the EK forum who fly out of DXB with other airlines these days than users on the TK forum who fly out of DXB these days.

Anyway, the answer is Marhaba Lounge in T3. Or Lounge @ B in T3 if you have Priority Pass/LoungeKey. Plaza Premium in T3 which also used to give Priority Pass/LoungeKey access is closed.

T1 is open but only airside & the lounges aren't open.
