Plaza Premium Lounge Management's chief executive officer Song Hoi-See has announced that by 2015, there will be 50 new Plaza Premium Lounges set up both in existing and new international airports.
Coinciding with its 15th anniversary, the company will open a new flagship lounge at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) by the end of the year. The new facility will be at Gate 60, which currently houses a smaller Plaza Premium Lounge. The Plaza Premium Lounge at Gate 35 in HKIA, meanwhile, will be closed once the new one opens. The new facility will be the largest pay-in lounge in the region, and feature concierges, meet and greet services, showers and a business centre.
In the coming months, the Plaza Premium Lounges in New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport’s Terminal 3 domestic departures and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport will be expanded. In Bangalore, the company is also building two pay-in lounges at the Bengaluru International Airport, at both domestic and international departures, which will also open by the end of the year.
Finally, new Plaza Premium lounges will also open in Macau International Airport and London Heathrow next year, and one at Kuala Lumpur International Airport's (KLIA) new terminal once that is open. The company will also be extending its management wing to cover Sydney in 2014. The Heathrow and Sydney facilities will represent Plaza Premium Lounge’s debut into the European and Australian market. Recently opened and updated Plaza Premium Lounges include the Penang International Airport venue (see here) and KLIA's original lounge (see here).
As far as other locations go, “we will look to expand in Mainland China, Asia, Middle East, Europe and North America,” said Mr Song Hoi-See. Currently, the company currently operates 100 lounges in 27 countries.
