Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, managing director of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), the airport operator, said, “In our 17 years of partnership with Plaza Premium Group, it is a delight to note that our passion of introducing healthy and delectable food for airport travelers has come to fruition.
“Flight Club is indeed a fantastic addition to the range of services and facilities that we currently offer to our passengers at the airport. It also allows us to stay ahead among our peers in enriching travelers’ dining experience with its unique concept of eating well and eating healthy when they travel through Kuala Lumpur International.”
The new restaurant covers approximately 3,200ft² and contains seating for up to 110 travelers. It features a buffet salad bar, dessert display counter and a live cooking kitchen station where guests can enjoy an interactive dining experience while awaiting their flight.

There are also charging stations, a flight information display board, TVs, complimentary wi-fi and a selection of magazines and newspapers to further enhance the passenger experience.
The Flight Club menu combines healthy dishes from both western and international cuisine and includes dishes such as hydroponic baby cos Caesar’s Style, 1824 beef cheek, rotisserie chicken, traditional shepherd’s pie, grilled sutchi fillet, squid ink pasta, golden fish fillet, vermicelli soup, nasi lemak and nasi goreng.
Song Hoi-see, founder and CEO of PPG, said, “Eating healthy is a global trend, and Flight Club is the latest addition to our series of airport dining brands encouraging all to travel and eat well.
“We are very proud to launch this inaugural Flight Club at Kuala Lumpur Airport, which is also our group’s maiden airport location more than 17 years ago. We are equally delighted to partner with the airport in bringing this unique dining experience with healthy, theatrical and educational elements to all travelers. Inspired by herbs and seeds, Flight Club is the first airport-born international food and beverage concept, and we will continue to develop this brand in leading airports to promote healthy dining.”
