The Group’s newest lounge has further demonstrated the importance of the Australian market and the company’s strong commitment to continued local investment.
The new Plaza Premium Lounge – PPG’s first presence in Adelaide – was opened by PPG Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Song Hoi See and Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Brenton Cox.
As a result of increasing patronage since the soft opening in April, the lounge’s opening hours have been extended to operate daily from 7.00am to 11.30am as of 31 July.
The lounge can cater for up to 137 passengers and incorporates the best of South Australia, featuring a wine installation, and nature-inspired art by two of South Australia’s awardwinning artists.
Plaza Premium Lounge Adelaide is the group’s fourth location in Australia after Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and the first dedicated international common-user lounge at Adelaide Airport since the current terminal was opened in 2005.
It is expected to host international and local travellers, especially South Australian residents travelling out across Oceania, Asia, the US and the UK.
The lounge allows customers to ‘pay-as-you-go’ at all of its airport locations rather than having to pay an ongoing membership. Members of ‘Smart Traveller’ enjoy a 20 per cent discount all year round off walk-in rates. Various multi-city passes are also available at a value deal.
The Plaza Premium Lounge offers travellers a relaxed, sophisticated environment during their journey. The lounge also presents an exciting new in-lounge experience – the Group’s first specialty wine feature in collaboration with Accolade Wines, showcasing award-winning Australian wines.
“We are delighted to be the first and only independent international lounge at Adelaide Airport offering departing and transit passengers their own lounge to relax before flying just steps from departure gates,” shares Mr Song Hoi See.
“For the first time, all our international departing and transit passengers have the option to relax in a wonderful premium lounge space before their flight. PPG has done a wonderful job with the design and fit-out as well as incorporating South Australian artworks and featuring world-class local wines,” says Mr Brenton Cox, Adelaide Airport’s Managing Director.
The lounge at Adelaide Airport is the newest addition to the Plaza Premium Lounge global network, following the recent lounge openings in Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Orlando, Edinburg, Cebu and Dubai. As the group celebrates 25 years of offering unrivalled hospitality this year, the opening marks another key milestone of Plaza Premium Group and its continuous growth.
