Cathay Pacific has reopened its Level 7 Business Class Lounge of The Wing at Hong Kong International Airport following an extensive renovation.

The newly opened 1,935-square-metre Level 7 lounge, together with the 1,002-square-metre Business Class Lounge on Level 6 that reopened in April 2011, offers a new level of comfort and service for passengers flying out of Hong Kong.

The Wing, the airlines flagship lounge at Hong Kong International Airport, is currently going through a complete refurbishment. The final phase of renovations for The Wing will be for the First Class Lounge, which will begin shortly. Designed by London-based architects Foster + Partners, The Wing renovations will be completed in full by the fourth quarter of 2012.

Cathay Pacific Director Service Delivery Philippe de Gentile-Williams said, The refurbishment of The Wing highlights our commitment to offering the highest level of products and services to our valued customers. We will continue to make significant investments to ensure we deliver the very best to our passengers both on the ground and in the air.

Among the many changes and upgrades is the signature Noodle Bar, which has not only doubled in seating capacity, but also moved beyond its original enclosed area to a larger open-ceiling space with ample sunlight and natural live bamboo decorations. On top of freshly made noodles, passengers can now enjoy the newly introduced Chinese-style buns, or bao, including the popular Char Siu Bao.

Also new to The Wing is the introduction of The Coffee Loft, a relaxing space where passengers can enjoy a cup of specialty coffee and freshly baked pastries. Self-service buffet counters featuring a wide variety of quality Asian and Western hot dishes along with cold food selections are also available on both levels of the lounge throughout the day.

The refurbished Business Class sections of The Wing offer a wide range of designer furniture including 35 Cathay Solus Chairs designed specifically to accommodate single travellers needs. The Level 6 lounge also houses all 24 of The Wings Business Class shower suites where passengers can freshen up before departures.

As with all Cathay Pacific lounges, The Wings Business Class Lounge is open to First and Business Class passengers, Silver and above Marco Polo Club members and Sapphire and above oneworld members. Opening hours are from 05:30 until the last departure.
