Plaza Premium and China Eastern Airlines have opened the world’s first co-branded airport lounge in Terminal 2 at Shanghai Pudong International.
Located near departures Gate 77, the No 77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge is a pay-in facility and is therefore open to all travellers regardless of airline or class of travel. A two-hour lounge visit costs RMB300 (£31).
Main sitting area
At over 1,800sqm, the lounge offers a seating capacity of 500 and features a 180-degree airport runway view.
Facilities include a leisure area, buffet, bar, five workstations with internet access, a nursing room, three shower suites, a relaxation area and a smoking room.
Plaza Premium’s signature honeycomb seat has also found its way into the Shanghai facility, while complimentary wifi is available throughout.
