16 Nov 2015 by Clement Huang

Plaza Premium Group and China Eastern Airlines have opened the world’s first co-branded airport lounge in Terminal 2 of Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

Entrance of the No. 77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge

Located near Gate 77 at Departures, the No. 77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge is a pay-in facility, and is therefore open to all travellers regardless of airline or class of travel. A two-hour lounge visit costs RMB300 (US$47).

Main sitting area

At over 1,800sqm, the lounge offers a seating capacity of 500 and features an “East Meet West” philosophy that blends Plaza Premium’s sleek design ethos with China Eastern’s concept of offering “world-class hospitality with Eastern charm”.

Plaza Premium’s signature honeycomb seating

The lounge is equipped with an array of independent facilities, including a leisure area, buffet area, bar area, five Internet workstations, nursing room three shower suites, relaxation area, and smoking room. Plaza Premium’s signature honeycomb seat has also found its way into the Shanghai facility, while complimentary wifi is available throughout.

Dining area

Featuring a 180-degree airport runway view, the No. 77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge also offers a generous selection of Chinese and Western style buffets throughout the day. Plaza Premium’s ongoing trait of adding local fare to its F&B offering is evident here, with the serving of authentic Shanghai- and Hong Kong-style noodles at the lounge’s live cooking station.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the No. 77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge 

To commemorate the opening of the new lounge, customers that reserve for access online through the Plaza Premium Lounge website will be entitled to a 20 per cent discount. This offer is valid until the end of the year.
