Plaza Premium Group is set to expand its global footprint after a US$55 million investment.
The company has unveiled plans for 15 new hotel or lounge openings and enhancements across 11 international airports.
These include Beijing Daxing International Airport in China; Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and Denver International Airport in the USA; Dubai International Airport in the UAE; Heathrow in the UK; Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Indonesia; Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia; Singapore Changi Airport; Sydney Airport in Australia; Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada; and Hong Kong International Airport.
The expansion is part of a wider US$100 million investment across the globe.
“This year and 2020 mark a big leap forward for Plaza Premium Group and we are committed to serving over 16 million travellers by the end of 2020, a ten per cent increase compared to where we are now.
“In addition to opening in 15 new locations by the end of 2020 as part of our US$50 million investment, we continue to strengthen our leading position in the existing markets by creating a holistic departure, transit and arrival experience,” shared Song Hoi-see, chief executive of Plaza Premium Group.
“Our businesses have been going from strength to strength thanks to our airport, airline and corporate partners, and our valued guests.”
