Singapore Airlines (SIA) is to open a new First and Business Class lounge at Hongkong International Airport.
The lounge will be ready on September 25 but goes into operation from September 9.
Harry Chu, SIA public relations manager for Hongkong, said the facility would be around twice the size of the existing lounge with a “classier new design”.
Extra space for computer terminals and workstations has been included but there will be no shower facilities. Improved catering can be expected, Chu said.
“Since most of our departures are directly out of Hongkong, we found there was no demand for showers and so we have used the space for other amenities.”
The new lounge will be able to host around 210 passengers at a time and will be open from 6am until 10.30pm. It is situated next to the current lounge opposite gate 15 in the departures area.
