Plaza Premium Group opens sixth European airport lounge at Gatwick; further openings scheduled in 2021

UK. Plaza Premium Group has opened its sixth European Plaza Premium Lounge at London Gatwick Airport. It has also announced that there will further lounge openings at airports in the region in late 2021.

The new lounge at the UK’s second-busiest airport is located in the North Terminal, and spans 1,350sq m. It is open from 6am to 5.30pm daily and can accommodate up to 190 guests.

The new Plaza Premium Group lounge at Gatwick has expansive views of the aircraft and runways 

Plaza Premium Group said that the lounge and bar are designed to provide a distinctive experience for passengers in addition to subtly immersing them into the local culture through its features and offerings.

A part of its commitment to a safe and hygienic environment, the lounge follows Plaza Premium Lounge’s We Care For Your Wellbeing programme with zoning to facilitate privacy and social distancing in its comfortable seating and dining areas.

A kid’s zone has also been specially designed for family travellers at the lounge.

The lounge has a separate zone for children, complete with various activities and toys

Guests in the lounge can enjoy food & beverage using Smart Order, a contactless food ordering system accessible via smart mobile devices. The menus offer a selection of Asian, European, Indian and other international cuisines.

Plaza Premium Group Global Business Development Director Jonathan Song said: “The opening of our first Plaza Premium Lounge in London Gatwick Airport presents very exciting opportunities for Plaza Premium Group as we continue to grow our footprint in the UK and Europe.

“UK’s fast and successful vaccination rollout has led to the recent relaxation of travel restrictions and the encouraging increase in international travel again for its citizens. Confidence is building, passenger numbers are regaining impressive growth, and Plaza Premium Group’s ambitions to extend its 360-degree world-class airport hospitality services and facilities in Europe are on track.

“We look forward to delivering our award-winning, best-in-class signature hospitality including Airport Lounge, Airport Meet & Greet, in-Terminal Airport Hotel, Airport Dining, and other premium airport services at London Gatwick airport and across more airports in Europe in the months to follow.”

The next Plaza Premium Lounges to open in Europe will be at Frankfurt in Germany and Budapest in Hungary. Both are scheduled to open before the end of this year.

Recently awarded Skytrax World’s Best Independent Airport Lounge with its London Heathrow lounge, Plaza Premium Group said its European expansion is a key component in the company’s global “Build Back Better” business transformation strategy.
