Cathay Pacific welcomes first class passengers to Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific Airways has reopened the First Class Lounge in The Wing, the airline’s flagship lounge at Hong Kong International Airport, following an extensive renovation.

The newly opened 1,697-square-metre lounge, together with the Business Class Lounge, where renovations were completed last year, offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service to passengers flying out of Hong Kong.

The Wing set a new standard in airline ground service when it opened its doors in 1998. With a vision to elevate the passenger experience to the next level, Cathay Pacific commissioned world-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners to redesign The Wing.

Work on the complete renovation of the facility commenced in late 2010. 

Cathay Pacific chief operating officer Ivan Chu said: “The refurbishment of The Wing highlights our commitment to offering the highest level of products and services to our valued customers.

“We will continue to make significant investments to ensure we deliver the very best to our passengers both on the ground and in the air.”

Among the many changes is an upgrade to The Haven, the iconic feature of the First Class Lounge.

This popular dining area has been expanded to more than double its original capacity and features an expanded buffet counter that offers an extensive range of appetisers, Asian and Western dishes, and delicious desserts.

The passenger dining experience has been further enhanced by a reinvented à la carte menu complemented by recommended wine pairings.
