Premium airport services provider Plaza Premium Group yesterday announced a global expansion plan by unveiling three new brands and two new lounge locations.
The announcement, made during a press conference at the ITB Asia 2015 trade show held in Marina Bay Sands, included the additions to Plaza Premium’s brand portfolio of Allways – the Group’s Airport Meet & Greet Service brand; Aerotel – a unique line of airport transit hotels; and Flight Club – a brand new dining concept specifically designed for airports.
The biggest news at the conference was the launch of Plaza Premium’s first transit hotel, branded as ‘Aerotel’, at Changi Airport. After a soft opening yesterday, the hotel, located on Level 3 at the Departure Transit Lounge of Terminal 1 in Singapore Changi Airport (above Gate D41), becomes the world’s only hotel to have an outdoor swimming pool and pool-side bar in the airside restricted area. Aerotels are planned for Abu Dhabi International Airport and London Heathrow Airport next year.
Flight Club is “a new dining concept fashioned after travellers own home and inspired by herbs and seeds.” Now open 24/7 on the Mezzanine Level in the Satellite Building (International Departures) of KL International Airport, Malaysia, Fight Club promises the opportunity to eat healthy, even on the road.
Allways, the Group’s new Airport Meet & Greet Service is now available at Toronto Pearson International Airport and New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, to be followed by airports in Singapore, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Muscat and London Heathrow.
Additionally, the group’s flagship brand and the world’s largest independent airport lounge network, Plaza Premium Lounge, revealed two new ‘strategic’ locations – Taipei and Rio de Janeiro – to add to the eight new lounges confirmed earlier this year.
Mr. Song Hoi-see, Founder & CEO of Plaza Premium Group, said: “We are thrilled to join hands with both Taiwan Taoyuan and Rio de Janeiro–Galeão International Airport to bring Plaza Premium Lounge to Taipei and Rio de Janeiro respectively in the next few months. I am highly confident that Plaza Premium Lounge in Brazil will perfect travellers’ airport experience during the upcoming Rio 2016 Summer Olympics.”
Plaza Premium will be opening a flagship lounge early next month – No.77 China Eastern Plaza Premium Lounge will be the world’s first co-branded airport lounge between a specialised lounge management company and an airline. With a size of over 19,000 square feet, the lounge will open in Terminal 2 of Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
