Cathay Pacific lounge opened at Vancouver International

Airline operator Cathay Pacific has opened its new luxury passenger lounge in the International Terminal at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond, Canada.

The new lounge has been created using the company’s latest design template, which has already been rolled out in Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, Taipei and Haneda airports. Designed by Studioilse, the London-based design firm led by Ilse Crawford, the new lounge features warm, natural materials like wood and stone, alongside softened acoustics and lighting, to create an environment that helps passengers to relax ahead of their flight.

The new lounge measures approximately 5,500ft2, with seating for 108 travelers. Dining is a focal part of the lounge experience and features the airline’s signature Noodle Bar, which offers a selection of soup including wonton noodle soup, dan dan noodle soup and authentic Hong Kong-style fish ball noodle soup. Another dining highlight is The Pantry, where passengers can enjoy cold cuts, a selection of cheeses, salads, western hot food, fruits, desserts and tapas. The lounge is open to first and business class passengers and certain members of the airline’s Marco Polo Club.

Nick Hays, vice president, Canada, Cathay Pacific, said, “We aim to offer the very best traveler experience when flying Cathay Pacific and we believe this spectacular new lounge is a reflection of how important this market is to the airline.

“We hope our guests will enjoy taking in the iconic views of Vancouver’s coastal mountains as they say farewell to the city and use this space as a tranquil haven that sets the mood for their outbound flights to New York, Hong Kong, China or beyond to our global network.”
