Plaza Premium Group opens Adelaide’s first lounge for international travellers
Plaza Premium Group (PPG) has announced the opening of a new lounge in international departures at Adelaide Airport (ADL).
The airport’s first and only international lounge, it spans 532sqm and can accommodate up to 137 guests.
According to PPG, its bespoke design “incorporates beautiful features of natural stone, marble, granite and travertine, timber, a raked render finish throughout, and a selection of contemporary feature lighting and furniture, creating a sense of comfort for travellers”.
It adds that the facility is bright and warm, with gentle curves and soft surfaces, attributes which help ensure 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 to be launched later in the month, showcasing award-winning Australian wines.
Upon entering, guests will travel through the wine corridor opening into the lounge space divided into multiple zones that accommodate the needs of different travellers.
With sustainability in mind, single-use plastics have been eliminated, the lighting scheme is comprised of 100% LED lighting, and the lounge is installed with energy-efficient appliances and water saving devices.
“We’re excited that 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,” notes Brenton Cox, Adelaide Airport’s managing director.
“This is one of the final pieces of our S$200 million terminal expansion project that has also seen a significant upgrade of our international arrivals and departures facilities including expanded duty free, more room for immigration processing and more baggage belts for arriving passengers.”
While PPG’s regional general manager for Oceania, Poh Kiat Lee, says: “This is our fourth major city location in Australia, each lounge’s design reflecting the personality of its home city.
“We are excited to bring our exceptional hospitality to Adelaide, setting a new standard of offerings, welcoming guests to experience our award-winning service amongst local touches of South Australia.”
