Qantas has reopened its Hong Kong International Lounge as part of a $100 million investment into its global lounge network.
“Our customers have always loved the Hong Kong International Lounge and we are excited to bring it back better than ever,” said Markus Svensson, Chief Customer Officer, Qantas. “Since we resumed flights to Hong Kong in January, we’ve seen really strong demand. This reopening is part of our increased investment in customer experience across our network, to ensure Qantas customers continue to enjoy the high level of hospitality they have come to enjoy and expect from Qantas.”
The improved 2,000sqm lounge features an updated warmer colour palette and new furnishings by Australian designer David Caon, with a seating capacity for 290 customers overlooking panoramic views of Hong Kong’s famous Sky Bridge.
The original design of the lounge has been retained and finishes such as tiling and screens have been refreshed to create different zones within the lounge and a sense of privacy for customers.
Qantas Creative Director of Food, Beverage and Service Neil Perry has designed a menu of local dishes inspired by regional flavours and ingredients.
The large bar area will serve up a wide selection of premium Australian wines, beer and spirits along with Neil Perry mixologist designed cocktails.
With Qantas’ flights currently scheduled overnight between Hong Kong and Australia, corporate travellers will be able to catch up on emails in the business zone which is fitted with power and data outlets, as well as high speed Wi-Fi. Those wanting to relax will be able to freshen up before their flight in the 12 private shower suites featuring Li’Tya amenities.
