The Plaza Premium lounge at Macau Airport is now open and is soon to mirror Virgin Australia’s Premium Entry setup at Sydney Airport with travellers bypassing the main departure hall until boarding kicks off.
For VIPs, there’s also an optional meet and greet service to make the entire travel experience – from kerb to gate – even simpler.
Unlike airline-operated lounges, Plaza gives all travellers the opportunity to pay for lounge access, even without frequent flyer status or a business class ticket.
A Priority Pass card gets you in without a fuss, otherwise two hour packages are available for MOP$ 400 (around A$53), while longer stays up to five hours are MOP$ 600 (about A$80).
Standing at just over 400 square metres and as the only independent airport lounge in Macau, there are seats for 135 lounge lizards.
Inside, the company boasts that the buffet packs in “healthy yet tasty food options”, alongside free internet access throughout the lounge.
There’s also a dedicated resting area, and two spacious VIP rooms which can be booked separately at an extra charge – with more on the way over the coming months.
With soundproofing and independent restrooms, they’re the ideal spot for business meetings or for higher levels of privacy.
Later this year, Sydney Airport is set to have two of its own Plaza Premium Lounges in its T1 international terminal.
The Macau opening follows Plaza Premium’s expansion in Hong Kong and London over the past year.
