Cathay Pacific welcomes first class passengers to Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific Airways has reopened the First Class Lounge in The Wing, the airline’s flagship lounge at Hong Kong International Airport, following an extensive renovation.

The newly opened 1,697-square-metre lounge, together with the Business Class Lounge, where renovations were completed last year, offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service to passengers flying out of Hong Kong. 




DOHA OPENING NEW AIRPORT - Doha Hamad International Airport, formerly known as the New Doha International Airport, is set to open April 1 and will be operated by national carrier Qatar Airways.

The first phase of the $15.5 billion project will see 12 international carriers operating from the new facility from that date. These are reportedly carriers, including low-cost airlines, which do not require use of the airport lounges that have yet to be completed. Qatar Airways will move its entire operations to Hamad International in the second half of this year once the lounges have been completed.

Details of the soft launch were unveiled by Qatar Airways, the Hamad International Airport’s Operational Readiness and Airport Transition (ORAT) team and Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA). The phased approach means that Doha will have a dual airport operation until full operations begin at Hamad International in the second half of 2013.
