China Airlines has opened a new VIP lounge for first class passengers and Paragon member card holders in Terminal 2 of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
The 512.45 sqm new facility on the fourth floor, dubbed the “Supreme Lounge”, compliments the two other China Airlines lounges – for business and first class passengers – in Terminals 1 and 2 of the airport.
The walls of the Supreme Lounge are adorned with works from Taiwanese artists, as well as Taiwan’s largest 3D flat-screen TV, measuring 65 inches wide. There are also 65 seats, free wifi, a public PC area, shower facilities and massage chairs.
Supreme Lounge dwellers can choose from a selection of Chinese and Western dishes, as well as Taiwanese favourites such as bubble tea, sweet potato and tea eggs.
Architect Ricky Liu has designed the lounge in “Noveau Oriental” style, incorporating distinctly Asian touches such as traditional Chinese arhat chairs, octagonal kiosks, cloisters, moon gates and Taiwanese floral crafts and tea sets.
In keeping with this theme, the Chinese name for the lounge was chosen by Vice Premier Mao Chi-kuo, and is based on the idiom “the far ends of the earth are as neighbors” by master calligrapher Dong Yang-zi.
China Airlines has 10 airport lounges in hubs such as Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Okinawa, San Francisco and Honolulu.
