Travelers' Lounge opens third facility at Hongkong airport

2 Feb 2010

Travelers’ Lounge has opened a third facility at Hong Kong International Airport. As with sister facilities Traveler’s Lounge, which is also located airside near gate 35, and Plaza Premium Lounge in the non-restricted arrivals area, it promotes the pay-for-use concept.  

Located in the East Hall, near gate 1, the lounge, measuring 1,394sqm, can seat a total of 300 passengers and features amenities such as showers, an exclusive resting area, a bar, all-day dining as well as a beauty salon and a spa area. The Library, designed for small meetings, can accommodate eight people.

The new 24-hour facility has a designated area for First Class and Business Class passengers of airlines that do not operate their own lounge at the Hongkong Airport. Premium travellers of EVA Air, Japan Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways, SWISS Air and Ethiopian Airlines are allowed complimentary access to the lounge.

Premium members of credit card companies such as American Express, Bank of China, City Bank and China Trust are also eligible to the free access. The list of complimentary lounge services varies from card to card. Holders of the Priority Pass card also get free access to the lounge.

The lounge also accepts walk-in passengers. Fees range between HK$400 (US$53) for two hours and HK$600 (US$79) for 10 hours. The standard lounge package includes shower, salad bar, hot meal, non-alcoholic drinks, workstations with internet access, Wi-Fi access, TV, newspapers, magazines and a choice of seated massage, oxygen therapy or water-bed therapy for 15 minutes. Alcoholic drinks and spa treatments are chargable.

“While the airlines fulfill the need of 15 percent of airport users who
fly First and Business Class, our vision is to extend this service
ethos to 85 percent of travellers who fly Economy Class, or
increasingly, passengers of budget airlines that provide no lounge
access,” said Song Hoi-See, founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Lounge
Management.
