James Park Associates has been commissioned to design new flagship lounges for Air China in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Chongqing.

The design agency - responsible for recent projects including Gulf Air’s lounge at Heathrow T4 (see online news March 3, 2011) and Cathay Pacific’s new business class product (see online news December 7, 2010) – is creating business and first class lounges at Beijing and Chengdu airports, due to open this spring.

The group will also design a further Phoenix lounge at Chengdu, for use by members of Air China’s Phoenix frequent flyer scheme, along with business and first class lounges at Chongqing.

JPA has also been confirmed as the agency behind American Airlines’ forthcoming B777-300ER cabins, including a similar business class product to that of Cathay Pacific (see online news January 27).

According to a release JPA has “re-imagined the look and feel of American Airlines’ First Class, Business Class and Main Cabin sections and also created the aircraft interior’s unique self-service bar – a first for any U.S. airline – and the galley from a design, trim and finish perspective”.
