Qantas has today officially reopened its Hong Kong International Lounge as part of a huge global lounge upgrade program announced earlier this year.
This lounge, originally launched in 2014, was among the most frequented in the Qantas network. But, like many others, it had to shut its doors during the pandemic. Now, it’s back with a fresh face after undergoing a significant makeover.
The new and improved lounge sprawls across a generous 2,000 square meters and now boasts a warmer colour palette and chic new furnishings, courtesy of Australian designer David Caon.
With seating for 290 customers and panoramic views of Hong Kong’s famous Sky Bridge, the lounge is all set to give travellers a comfortable and scenic space to relax.
Qantas’ Creative Director of Food, Beverage and Service, Neil Perry, has crafted a menu featuring local dishes inspired by regional flavours and ingredients.
And for those who fell in love with the Yum Cha trolley from the previous version of the lounge – it’s making a comeback! Get ready to savor some steaming hot dim sum and the much-loved char siu Chinese barbecue pork dish.
As for the drinks, a large bar area will be serving a selection of Australian wines, beer, and spirits. Fancy a cocktail? Neil Perry’s mixologist-designed concoctions like the Chi Chi – a mix of dark rum, pineapple, lime, and vanilla – will be up for grabs.
You can also stay hydrated with Qantas’ Quench hydration station that offers a variety of hot and cold beverages.
For the corporate travelers among us, the lounge’s business zone remains at hand. It is equipped with ample power and data outlets, and high-speed Wi-Fi. So, you can catch up on your emails before you take off.
If you’re more in the mood for some relaxation, freshen up in one of the 12 shower suites stocked with Li’Tya amenities.
Qantas currently operates a daily return flight between Sydney and Hong Kong. From June, Qantas will also reinstate flights between Melbourne and Hong Kong, initially operating three days per week, and then increasing to four weekly services from mid-July.
