Cathay Pacific has today soft-opened their much anticipated London Heathrow lounge in T3. The lounge will officially open on December 7th to eligible customers.
The lounge has been completely upgraded and is now 1200 square meters in size. The lounge features separate areas for business and first class passengers.
Per Cathay Pacific,
“At Cathay Pacific, we care about our passengers’ experience at every stage of their journey – from the moment they arrive at the airport until they reach their destination – and our exciting new Heathrow lounge was designed to enable our customers to travel well. Our aim was to provide our passengers with a tranquil haven to relax before boarding their flights to Hong Kong and we hope our customers are as enthusiastic about the new lounge as we are.”
First Class passengers will access to the ‘Dining Room’ and will also have dishes to order from a chef. First passengers can also use the ‘Pantry’ for grabbing snacks and drinks, very similar to the Pier in Hong Kong.
Business passengers will be able to access their famous ‘Noodle Bar’ and the ‘Food Hall’ which has many Asian and international dishes to choose from.
The lounge also features eight shower suites and a whole lot of comfortable seating.
Here are some photos of the new lounge:
The lounge is designed by Studioilse, and they have designed the London lounge around their award winning lounges in various airports.
At 12000 square meters, the lounge is filled with new seating.
First class & Business class Oneworld Emerald & Sapphire members and Marco Polo elites will be able to access the lounge from 5:30 am from Monday to Saturday and 7:30 am on Sunday until 10:30 pm.
The new lounge looks very impressive. I like how Cathay keep their lounge almost the same but also have some slight changes which make them great to visit.
