Plaza Premium Group, which operates a network of airport lounges across the world, has expanded its presence in the Middle East with its first site in Dubai International ansd in the region.
Situated on the upper level overlooking departure gates A2 and A3, the lounge resembles a balcony sweeping with natural lighting from the airport’s high ceilings.
Guests have apron views and the lounge space is designed with nods to the desert and ocean.
Plaza Premium Lounge Dubai is the only airport lounge to offer four 10-square-meter Family Suites catering to the needs of big families or small groups.
Five shower rooms are available for guests and there are workstations for business travellers needing a private space.
Song Hoi-see, CEO of Plaza Premium Group, said: “Dubai International connects travellers to more than 220 destinations across the globe including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Taiwan, Europe, US and more, in many of which we operate airport lounges and other airport hospitality services.
