Plaza Premium Lounge has unveiled a new pay-per-use airport lounge at Sydney International Airport as Plaza Premium Group continues its expansion in Australia.
Located opposite Gate 25, Pier B – the former site of the American Express lounge (which relocated to near gates 50-63 in late October 2019), this new lounge is the brand’s third addition in Australia, joining locations in Melbourne and Brisbane.
“Sydney is a popular destination and Sydney International Airport is the country’s busiest airport connecting 70% of the world destinations.” said Song Hoi-see, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Plaza Premium Group.
“Plaza Premium Group’s new lounge at the T1 International terminal is a welcome addition to our extensive lounge portfolio, providing customers with a quiet and comfortable space to relax post or pre-flight. Greater accessibility through Plaza Premium Group’s pay-per-use option also ensures every passenger can enjoy this great new location.” said Vanessa Orth, Chief Commercial Officer of Sydney Airport.
The new lounge is dressed in a combination of birch and emerald green; the lounge ambiance is inspired by the country’s abundant beaches, bushlands and natural landscapes. Part of the brand’s promise to promote sustainability, locally sourced Tasmanian oak is incorporated as an appreciation of nature.
Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the tarmac and the venue is filled with an abundance of day light for travellers to feel at ease.
Opens daily from 6am to 10pm, guests can indulge in a variety of food options from selfserve counter or choose from the made-to-order, enticing “glocal” menu. Breakfast served until 11.30am includes comfort food such as French Toast with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream.
An all-day menu available from 11.30am showcases a selection of lighter options and substantial meals, featuring classic Aussie favourites such as Gourmet Mac’n Cheese and Classic Aussie Chicken Parmigiana with Green Leaf Salad to global cuisines like Sticky Pork Bao and Italian Meatballs with Garlic Bread.
Guests can also opt to see chefs in action at the live kitchen corner while anticipating their pizzas freshly baked with classic favourites. Vegetarians will be taken care of with delicious meat-free choices.
Plaza Premium Lounge Sydney creates a laid-back ambience between 1pm and 4pm with the introduction of high tea paired with Dilmah, the renowned Sri Lankan tea brand known for its authentic unblended teas. Guests will find Lemonade Scones with Whipped Cream and Strawberry Jam matched with Dilmah Gourmet Italian Almond Ceylon Single Origin or Smoked Salmon and Dill Tart with Lemon-infused Beurre Blanc with Dilmah Ceylon Young Hyson Green Tea.
