The first airport lounge has opened under an agreement between JPMorgan Chase and Airport Dimensions.
Plans for the new Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club brand were unveiled in June 2021, with Hong Kong subsequently being named among the initial locations alongside Boston and New York’s LaGuardia.
The Hong Kong facility has seen Airport Dimensions (a subsidiary of Priority Pass owner Collinson) revamp and rebrand one of its existing The Club lounges.
Readers can access the lounge with a Priority Pass or Lounge Key membership, by showing their physical or digital card on entrance, while Sapphire Reserve cardmembers can use the complimentary Priority Pass membership that is an existing benefit on the Sapphire Reserve card.
Facilities include “fresh and seasonal dining options, signature cocktails, local beer and a curated wine list”, as well as free wifi, and “plenty of [power] outlets”.
An “in-lounge digital experience” also enables guests to order food and drink, as well as access digital media and entertainment including local newspapers and magazines.
The Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club is located in the West Hall of Hong Kong International’s Terminal 1, on level seven of the Departures Hall close to gate 40. Travellers departing from the East hall can also access the lounge via shuttle or a 10-15 minute walk.
It is initially open daily between 0800 and 2000, although a press release said that the facility “will continue to phase in longer hours as time goes on”.
