Plaza Premium Group has unveiled plans for its first Japanese airport lounge, with a new facility at Chubu Centrair International airport.

The offshore airport is located on a man-made island around 20 miles south of the city of Nagoya, and is the main international gateway to the Chubu or central region of Japan.

It welcomed around 13 million passengers in 2019, and is the eighth busiest airport in the country.

The 450 sqm Plaza Premium Lounge will open next year within the airport’s international departures hall, and follows the recent unveiling of what the group is referring to as its first “land-to-air premium airport experience” at the newly opened Qingdao Jiaodong International airport.
