San-MarinoHong Kong-based Plaza Premium Group announced the opening of Plaza Premium Lounge at London Gatwick Airport. The opening reinforces the group’s strategic presence in the United Kingdom and increases its foothold across the rest of Europe to six lounges with further openings scheduled for late 2021. Opened in 1958, London Gatwick Airport is the second-largest of the main London airports and is the second busiest airport in the United Kingdom handling over 46 million passengers per year traveling to approximately 230 destinations. It is also the UK’s best-connected airport by rail and directly connects to more stations than any other European airport.

“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,” said Jonathan Song, global business development director of Plaza Premium Group. The “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 & 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.”

Recently awarded Skytrax World’s Best Independent Airport Lounge with its London Heathrow lounge, Plaza Premium Lounge’s European expansion is a key component in the company’s global “Build Back Better” business transformation strategy. London Gatwick’s opening in September will shortly be followed by two further openings in key European cities: Frankfurt in Germany and Budapest in Hungary. The two new locations are expected to open in the next quarter when further details will be announced.
