Plaza Premium has announced plans for a new airport lounge at Helsinki airport.
Scheduled to open in February 2019, the lounge will be located in the non-Schengen area of the airport, as part of the extension of the terminal’s central plaza.
The lounge will feature a “live kitchen”, barm shower facilities, recharging stations, free wifi, computer workstations, and a kid zone.
Commenting on the news Jonathan Song, Business Development Director of Plaza Premium Group, said:
“Our decision to expand to Helsinki Airport was a natural one. Finland is a major transit hub offering the shortest route between Europe and Asia.
“We look forward to extending our airport hospitality expertise in our third market in Europe. This partnership will be another major milestone in achieving our global ambitions.”
Plaza Premium currently operates lounges at over 40 international airports including Heathrow, Abu Dhabi, Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.
The group also owns the Aerotel transit hotel brand, with locations including Abu Dhabi, Muscat and Singapore.
The brand had been due to open a property at Heathrow’s T3 in May, but the opening has been delayed and the group’s website currently advises “Bookings available soon”.
