Are you travelling through Heathrow soon? Good news! The highly anticipated new Cathay Pacific lounges are fully renovated and open to eligible passengers. Located in Terminal 3, the lounge is open to First and Business Class passengers, Silver or above Marco Polo Club members and Sapphire or above oneworld members. Here's a first look at the luxury you can expect to find.
The new lounge features distinct First and Business Class areas, the first for the airline outside of Hong Kong to be set up with these distinct zones, and at 1,200 square metres is much larger than the old lounge. Designed by London based design studio Studioilse, the lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the airport’s apron and northern runway and echoes the contemporary Asian aesthetics of Cathay’s flagship Hong Kong International Airport lounge.
The calming environment and endless amenities of the lounge is inline with Cathay Pacific’s ‘Life Well Travelled’ philosophy and provides a welcome oasis. Cathay Pacific General Manager Product, James Evans described the lounge as a tranquil haven for passengers to relax in.
Once inside the lounge, passengers can find a number of food and beverage options to suit their needs. First Class passengers have access to The Pantry, stocked with grab and go delicacies throughout the day, or can head to The Dining Room to enjoy fresh chef-prepared meals with full table service.
Business Class passengers have access to Cathay Pacific’s signature Noodle Bar serving up authentic Chinese delights along with The Food Hall offering a myriad of international dishes including traditional British fare, and of course a full-service bar is available for those after a pre-flight drink.
To further unwind before boarding, eight shower suites are available for both First and Business Class passengers, and for those needing to work The Bureau, provides the perfect calm, quiet and stress free environment.
Cathay Pacific flies between Hong Kong and Heathrow five times a day and the lounge is open from 5:50am to 10:30pm Monday to Saturday and from 7:30am to 10:30pm on Sundays.
