Cathay Pacific Airways has hosted a preview of its new Business Class Lounge, located at ‘The Pier’ at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), following a comprehensive refurbishment.
The new Business Class Lounge is now the largest among all Cathay Pacific lounges, with seating for 550 people and occupies a space of 3,306 square metres - approximately 1,000 square metres larger than the previous lounge.
Designed by Studioilse, the London-based design studio led by Ilse Crawford, the lounge experience starts from the street which is divided into “fast” and “slow” lanes. Passengers will find an array of food and beverage offerings on entering the fast lane, Among the various dining options are The Food Hall, a fun and vibrant space with self-service kiosks, and The Noodle Bar - an iconic feature of Cathay Pacific’s lounges.
The slow lane features the view out of the big glass windows and glazed timber screens and has extensive lounge seating, anchored by Cathay Pacific’s bespoke Solo Chairs. Each Solo Chair is equipped with a built-in reading lamp and an individual side table.
A brand-new feature developed specifically for The Pier Business Class Lounge, is the new Tea House – where a selection of teas is served by a tea specialist. The lounge also offers fourteen shower suites and a relaxation room, featuring low upholstered loungers and footstools.
The Pier Business Class Lounge is accessible to First and Business Class passengers, Silver and above Marco Polo Club members, members of all tiers who earned lounge passes and/or their friends and family members, and Emerald and Sapphire oneworld members who are departing or transiting in Hong Kong.
