Hong Kong-based Plaza Premium Group (PPG) announced it has opened its lounge at Frankfurt Airport in Germany. This is the group’s first venture in Germany, following its extensive expansion plan into Europe. Located at Terminal 2, the new Plaza Premium Lounge Frankfurt is ideally situated after customs and passport control of the airport, by gate D8 at International Departures. The lounge boasts a spacious seating area that can accommodate up to 107 guests. It also has a selection of complimentary refreshments, shower room facilities with toiletries, and other services. The lounge is open daily from 7am to 10pm.
With over 95 years of aviation expertise at the Fraport Group’s home base, Frankfurt Airport is strategically located in the heart of Europe. The surrounding Frankfurt Rhine-Main-Neckar region serves as an economic powerhouse and logistics hub for Europe and the world. In 2019, FRA welcomed more than 70.5 million passengers.
“Frankfurt Airport is gaining momentum and sees continued increase in passenger traffic as it reaches 4 million passenger numbers in April 2022. The opening of our first Plaza Premium Lounge in Frankfurt Airport is timely as passenger numbers show impressive growth with a total increase of 303.8 percent compared to the same period last year. Besides that, Frankfurt Airport also serves as the gateway to the world, having excellent global connections. This presents a very exciting opportunity for the group as we establish our footprint in Germany,” said Okan Kufeci, senior vice president – Europe, Middle East & Africa at Plaza Premium Group. “We hope our new lounge in Frankfurt Airport will be able to serve all passengers around the world and experience our best-in-class hospitality as travel demand surges in and out of Europe.”
Plaza Premium Group has also partnered with American Express to enable cardmembers to enjoy access to Plaza Premium Lounge Frankfurt all year round. Cardmembers will just need to present their eligible American Express card with a boarding pass for the same day at the reception to enjoy the newest lounge. The group will be announcing more credit card partners in the future.
Early this year, the group had launched two more lounges in Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport and Helsinki Airport. With its latest lounge opening in Frankfurt, PPG will have a total number of 11 lounges across Europe, including Denmark (Copenhagen Airport), Italy (Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport), Sweden (Gothenborg Landvetter and Stockholm Arlanda Airport), Switzerland (Geneva and Zurich Airport) and Turkey (Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport).
