Cathay Pacific has unveiled its First and Business Class Lounge at Heathrow Airport in a soft opening to eligible passengers, following an extensive renovation.
Located in Terminal 3, the lounge will officially open 7 December.
At 1,200 square metres, the newly refurbished and extended lounge is now 30 per cent larger than it was and features separate First and Business Class areas.
Stylish and design-driven, the lounge reflects the contemporary style of Cathay Pacific’s award-winning lounges at Hong Kong Airport, adorned with an abundance of plants and specially curated artwork by esteemed Chinese artist, Han Feng.
With floor-to-ceiling windows affording panoramic views over the airport’s apron and northerly runway, the lounge provides a soothing environment with a range of amenities including bespoke Solo Chairs and shower suites conveys the airline’s philosophy of a “Life Well Travelled”.
“We care about our passengers’ experience at every stage of their journey, and our exciting new Heathrow lounge was designed to enable our customers to travel well, by providing them with a tranquil haven to relax in before boarding their flight,” Cathay Pacific general manager product James Evans says.
First Class passengers will be extremely well catered to with a range of freshly-prepared dishes made-to-order in The Dining Room, as well as The Pantry where they can grab daily-changing delicacies on the go.
Meanwhile, Business Class passengers can have their pick of the signature Noodle Bar offering authentic Chinese cuisine, and The Food Hall, with a varied and vibrant range of international dishes. A full-service bar is also on offer, providing a great spot for a pre-flight drink.
The refurbishment of Cathay Pacific’s Heathrow lounge comes in response to customer demand and follows the airline’s other recent lounge openings in Bangkok, Haneda (Tokyo), Manila, Taipei and Vancouver, and is open to First and Business Class passengers, Silver or above Marco Polo Club members, and Sapphire or above oneworld members.
