Hong Kong-based airport hospitality services pioneer Plaza Premium Group is expanding its global footprint and enhancing products across 11 international airports –including in Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and Denver International Airport in the U.S. and Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada.

Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Group, says that Plaza Premium Group is committed to serving over 16 million travelers by the end of 2020, a 10% increase compared to where the company is now.

“In addition to expanding in the U.S., China and Indonesia as part of our US$100 million investment in coming years, we continue to strengthen our leading position in the existing markets by creating a holistic departure, transit and arrival experience,” he said.

In Toronto, a 1,200 sqm mega lounge in the International Departures area is scheduled to be fully operational in the 2nd quarter of 2020, and will be the largest independent pay-per-use lounge in Canada.  The brand will debut in the U.S. in 2020 with a domestic lounge and international lounge at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, and an international lounge at Denver International Airport.

The Group’s Plaza Premium Lounge will open 1,260 square meters of space at Dubai International Airport in December 2019, the largest independent pay-per-use lounge at the airport’s Terminal 3.

A Plaza Premium Lounge will be unveiled at Sydney Airport’s Terminal 1 in Australia in the 1st quarter of 2020, and a nearly 3,000 sqm lounge space combining Plaza Premium First, Plaza Premium Lounge and Allways will be built in Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to fully open in the 1st half of 2020.

In Hong Kong, the brand will open two new locations this December and January respectively.
