Cathay Pacific opens First Class lounge at Hong Kong International Airport
Cathay Pacific Airways has opened the 1,697-square-metre First Class lounge in The Wing, the airline's flagship lounge, at Hong Kong International Airport after extensive renovations.
Work for the complete renovation of the facility commenced in late 2010. The airline commissioned architectural firm Foster + Partners to redesign The Wing, which was opened in 1998.
As part of the renovations - The Haven - the dining area of the First Class lounge was expanded to more than double its original capacity. It now features an expanded buffet counter that offers a range of appetisers, Asian and Western dishes, and desserts.
Outside The Haven is a full-service bar where passengers can relax and enjoy a view of the airport runway over pre-meal drinks. A new champagne bar is also added to The Wing.
The Cabana, one of the classic features of The Wing, has also been refurbished to provide a new level of comfort to passengers. Each of the five Cabanas now features a spacious shower, a full-sized bath and a comfortable day bed. In addition, there are also 12 luxury shower suites for those who wish to freshen up before departure.
The Wing’s design has also incorporated a number of environmental features such as bamboo and eucalyptus as two of the key materials used throughout in The Wing, and natural light throughout the lounge.
The Wing’s First Class Lounge is open to First Class passengers, Diamond Marco Polo Club members and Emerald oneworld members. Opening hours are from 5:30am until the last departure.
