    When the airport expansion is finished in 2025 there will be two distinct terminals and some 40 new gates located adjacent to the new third runway.
    This new gate concourse will be connected to terminal ‘2’ by an extension of the current train and moving conveyer systems that have been a feature for some years.

    This expansion will finally allow Cathay room to expand its lounge offerings and two new flagship lounges are in the design stages and a new arrivals lounge is also likely.

    Both Hong Kong and the airport traffic are recovering fast with at least seven new airlines using the airport with now almost all of the pre Covid airlines back also.

    Good to see KLM back next month and also American joining United daily to HK with Qantas now flying its A380 and most of the European airlines again using their larger aircraft.

    After those three tough years it is good to see Hong Kong moving forward at a pace.

    This was news to the managers I spoke to in the Wing the other day – but I also read the same or similar article. CX lounges remain at a very high high standard & the new lounges should be excellent.

    Had one of those stupid moments on Thursday night before flying HKG – HEL. Went for a shower in the Wing and very skilfully and stupidly, managed to soak all my clothes when I turned the shower on. After shower, changed into a set of fresh clothes and asked the staff whether they could provide a plastic bag so I could at least keep my other items in my carry on dry.

    When I told the manager I had 3 hours until flight – he simply said leave it with me. Within an hour, my shirt and trousers came back not only dry, but nicely pressed and folded for my carry on. Absolutely refused to allow me to tip the staff member involved, so I went to buy some confectionary and left it for the team who run the showers.

    As with the outbound – I really enjoy time I spent in the Wing. Excellent lounge, thank you CX.
