A new lounge is coming to Hong Kong International Airport, it has been revealed. ‘Kyra’ will be located in the Central Concourse of Terminal 1 and is slated to launch this summer.

Full details of the lounge are yet to be revealed, but the project is being managed by three partners, airport lounge operator Airport Dimensions, global food and beverage outlet operator SSP and food and beverage lounge management specialist, Travel Food Services.

Airport Dimensions recently brought the award winning Club Aspire Heathrow lounge to London’s biggest airport, while SSP and TFS have overseen food and beverage projects at airports throughout Asia.

“Since our debut in Asia with our first food court opening in Don Mueang international airport in Bangkok in 1995, our presence has been growing steadily in this important region,” said SSP Asia Pacific chief executive officer, Jonathan Robinson. “This latest development is a next step in our ambitious plans for expansion here.”

Airport Authority Hong Kong general manager, Wing Yeung, added that HKIA welcomes the new commercial lounge, part of a development programme aiming to improve the airport’s capacity and facilities. “It will provide another terminal lounge option to our passengers, enhancing the airport experience and satisfaction of our passengers,” he said.

Many of HKIA’s lounges shuttered during the pandemic and a handful are yet to reopen. Last spring Qantas unveiled a new-look lounge space and Cathay also reopened its popular The Pier first- and business-class lounge. In the summer, Plaza Premium Group launched a new lounge concept, Intervals on the airport’s new sky bridge.

Emirates opens new lounge at HKIA

Meanwhile, Emirates has opened its revamped Emirates Lounge at HKIA. It’s located next to Gate 40 and is open to both first and business class passengers. 

Seating has been expanded with a variety of options, from comfy chairs to sofas. Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, showers, a dedicated prayer room and buffet dining options.

Emirates has also reinstated its popular chauffeur service for business class passengers in Hong Kong.
