commercial lounge in Hong Kong International Airport. Located in
Terminal 1, near Departure Gate 1, this flagship lounge spans an
expansive 15,000sq ft and has a seating capacity of approximately 300.
A brainchild of Plaza Premium Lounge Management Limited Founder and

comfort to travellers, providing them with the perfect pre-flight
The lounge is divided into different zones to suit the mood of the
visitors. “The aim is to give all travellers the ultimate pre-flight
experience. It is the fusion of innovation, creativity and designer
luxury,” said Song.
Upon entrance to the lounge, visitors are greeted by an oval-shaped
bar where baristas serve up a selection of specialty coffees and freshly
baked pastries. Alcoholic drinks offered include draught beer, wines,
spirits, cocktails, and mocktails, alongside other beverages such as
soft drinks, juices, coffee and tea, and hot chocolate.
