Plaza Premium Group and Menzies Aviation have formed a global partnership which will see the rebranding of existing airport lounges and cooperation on new projects.

A total of 13 Menzies lounges will be rebranded as Plaza Premium facilities. A press release said that the lounges are located in “key airports” in Europe, South Africa and New Zealand.

Business Traveller has obtained the following locations for the lounges from Menzies (note that some have more than one lounge, hence why there are not 13 locations on the list):

  • Stockholm
  • Gothenburg
  • Copenhagen
  • Isle of Man
  • Johannesburg
  • Durban
  • Windhoek
  • Christchurch
  • Cairns
  • Queenstown

As part of the agreement the two groups will “will jointly target new growth opportunities using the combination of Menzies’ capabilities and global operational presence, spanning over 200 airports, and PPG’s deep expertise in executive services and lounge management as the world’s largest independent airport lounge operator”.

Bora Isbulan, chief commercial officer of Plaza Premium Group said that the firm was “thrilled to join forces with Menzies Aviation to deliver a seamless, comforting, worry-free airport experience to help global travellers make the most out of their airport journey”.

“This strategic partnership brings together the best of two industry leaders in aviation logistics and airport hospitality in order to enhance both of our service offerings and customer experience journey so as to meet the new demands and expectations of travellers,” added Isbulan. “The 13 Menzies lounges will become a strategic addition to the growing Plaza Premium Lounge and affiliate lounge network in the coming years.”

Plaza Premium Group recently confirmed that it had decided not to renew its contract with lounge provider Priority Pass, removing around 60 lounges from the Priority Pass network from the start of July.
