Plaza Premium Group, which operates independent lounges at airports across the world, has unveiled its global expansion plans, including the launch of a new hotel concept.
At a press conference at ITB Asia in Singapore, Plaza Premium introduced three new brands to its portfolio: Allways, Aerotel, and Flight Club.
The most significant of these is Aerotel – a new airport transit hotel concept that will initially launch in Singapore. Aerotel Singapore, which has already soft-opened at the Departure Transit Lounge of Changi Airport’s Terminal 1, becomes the world’s first airside hotel to provide an outdoor swimming pool and pool-side bar, while rooms will come equipped with comfortable beds and hot power showers. Future Aerotels are expected to open in Abu Dhabi and London Heathrow airport next year.
Plaza Premium has also launched Allways, the group’s airport “meet and greet” service brand. This is initially being rolled out at seven airports: Toronto, Delhi, Singapore, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Muscat and London Heathrow.
And finally, Flight Club is a new dining concept specifically designed for airports, providing healthy eating for transit passengers. The first Flight Club is now open at Kuala Lumpur International Airport and will operate 24-7.
In terms of its airport lounge network, Plaza Premium has revealed two more locations: Taipei and Rio de Janeiro.
“We are thrilled to join hands with both Taiwan Taoyuan and Galeao International Airports to bring Plaza Premium Lounge to Taipei and Rio de Janeiro respectively in the next few months,” said Song Hoi-see, founder & CEO of Plaza Premium Group. “The dedication of these two airport authorities to providing excellent airport services matches perfectly with our heartfelt desire of delivering outstanding quality to travellers.”
And Song revealed that airlines are also now adopting Plaza Premium’s services, with China Eastern working with the company on its new lounge at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport. The grand opening of the flagship No.77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge will be held early next month.
Headquartered in Hong Kong, Plaza Premium Group now provides services in 35 international airports across the world.
