Qantas has opened the doors to a new 300-seat lounge at Hong Kong International Airport, offering travellers a new standard of luxury.
Qantas International CEO, Simon Hickey, describes the lounge as “stylish and contemporary, designed to reflect the color, vibrancy, and luxury of Hong Kong.”
Mr Hickey said the new multi-million dollar lounge delivers on Qantas’ ongoing commitment to creating the best travel experiences for its customers.
“It’s the perfect environment for our customers to relax and work before their flight, he said. “All of our flights from Hong Kong to Australia are overnight, so we know customers will enjoy being able to dine in the lounge before they fly so they can maximise their sleep onboard.”
Leading Australian chef Neil Perry, who consulted for the Qantas Lounge in Singapore, has designed the menus based on his Rockpool and Spice Temple restaurants.
Travellers can enjoy a range of dining experiences from the Spice Temple BBQ Bar to yum cha trolleys, an extensive buffet or the locally influenced plate of the day.
Spice Temple inspired cocktails are prepared alongside a world-class wine selection and barista service, to be enjoyed at the bar area with panoramic views across the airport overlooking the Qantas gates.
Australia-based Sumu Design and Caon Studio are behind the bold geometric patterns of the space, like those of traditional Chinese design.
Qantas has partnered with the Sofitel hotel group to offer a new service experience in Hong Kong.
Sofitel manages guest amenities such as a hosted experience for customers traveling in first class and Platinum One Qantas Frequent Flyers, with exclusive services including shirt pressing, shoe shining, and priority access to the lounge’s 12 showers.
A family zone and a flexible working area are also available.
