“All of our flights from Hong Kong to Australia are overnight, so we know customers will enjoy being able to dine in the lounge before they fly so they can maximise their sleep onboard,” said Hickey. “The Hong Kong Lounge is stylish and contemporary, designed to reflect the colour, vibrancy and luxury of Hong Kong. It’s the perfect environment for our customers to relax and work before their flight."
Building on the foundation set by the Qantas Singapore Lounge that launched last year (see here), the company has once again teamed up with consulting chef Neil Perry to design menus based on his Rockpool and Spice Temple restaurants utilising regionally inspired flavours and ingredients.
Qantas has also partnered with French luxury hotel chain Sofitel to offer a series of services that includes a hosted experience, along with shirt pressing, shoe shining and priority access to shower facilities for first class passengers and platinum one-tier Qantas frequent flyers.
“The new Hong Kong Lounge is testament to our continued investment in the lounge and inflight experiences right across our network. Our customers continue to tell us that Qantas lounges are a key part of their journey and that our international lounges are just as important as our lounges in Australia,” said Hickey.
