Cathay Pacific Airways has reopened its Business Class Lounge at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). The Wing, the airline’s flagship lounge at HKIA, is currently going through a complete refurbishment, designed by London-based architects Foster+ Partners. The project will be completed in full by the fourth quarter of 2012.
The second phase of the refurbishment of The Wing begins in May, when the Level 7 section of the Business Class lounge closes down for an eight-month refit. The third phase of the renovation will commence in the first quarter of 2012 when work begins on the First Class Lounge.
The newly-opened Business Class Lounge on Level 6, located by Gate 2 at the airport, covers 1,002 square metres. The refurbished lounge offers a wide range of seating including 28 armchairs and nine Cathay Solus Chairs designed specifically to accommodate single travellers. All IT facilities have been moved to the Level 6 and passengers can make use of 26 IT workstations equipped with individual computers and printers. The Level 6 lounge also houses all of The Wing’s Business Class shower suites – 24 in total (including one for disabled users). Finally, the self-serve buffet counter now features a wider variety of Asian and Western hot dishes along with cold food selections.
As with all Cathay Pacific lounges, The Wing Level 6 Business Class Lounge is open to First and Business Class passengers, Silver and above Marco Polo Club members and Sapphire and above oneworld members. Opening hours are from 5.30am until the last departure flight.
