Passengers departing on Cathay Pacific flights from London to Hong Kong can enjoy greater comfort and convenience following the opening of the airline’s new First Class and Business Class Lounges located at the central concourse at London Heathrow Airport.
Cathay Pacific’s General Manager Europe Philippe de Gentile-Williams said: “We are always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our customers, and the opening of our new lounges in London will definitely further enhance the Cathay Pacific experience. The new facilities reflect the airline’s commitment to offering quality service both in the air and on the ground.”
The 923 square-metre lounges feature Cathay Pacific’s signature Noodle Bar, a popular feature at the airline’s world-renowned lounges The Wing and The Pier at Hong Kong International Airport, providing a selection of authentic noodles for passengers to choose from. Another dining highlight is an improved buffet area with a wide selection of Western and Asian food and drinks.
