Cathay Pacific Airways recently opened their latest airport lounge in Hong Kong International Airport. Named The Bridge, it is a hallmark of understated luxury and contemporary comfort for the modern traveler. This officially raises the count of Cathay Pacific lounges at its Hong Kong hub to a total of six lounges, each with their own unique identity.

The Bridge is conveniently located on Level 5 of the West Concourse, near Gate 35. All you need to do for entry is present you First Class or Business Class ticket. It is also open to Silver or above Marco Polo Club members and Sapphire or above oneworld members departing or transiting in Hong Kong. Opening hours are from 5:30am until the last departure.

“Cathay Pacific is committed to offering our passengers the best lounges in the world. We have come a long way since we opened our first lounge, The Wing, in 1998. We introduced The Pier in 2001, The Arrival in 2008, and The Cabin in 2010. Together with Dragonair’s G16 lounge, and with the opening of The Bridge today, the Cathay Pacific Group now operates a total of six lounges at the Hong Kong International Airport, spanning an impressive 13,000 square meters,” said Cathay Pacific Chief Operating Officer Ivan Chu.

When you approach The Bridge you are greeted by welcoming, smiling faces and a luminous reception wall made from Venetian glass tiles by Fabbian of Italy. Your first choice will be whether you head to the South wing (a left from reception), where nine shower suites are located and furnished in natural Travertine stone accented by oak slat walls or whether you go to the North wing (a right from reception) where you encounter The Bakery, a cafeteria-style café where you can choose from freshly baked bread and pizzas, sandwiches, pastries, Asian and Western soups, and salads.

I opt for food and head for The Bakery, whereupon I snack on a potpourri of scrumptious delights. Afterwards, I head to the Long Bar for a glass of sauvignon blanc, whisking it back to a comfortable lounge chair where I connect my Samsung Galaxy Tab III and catch up on a little business. Life is good!

Next, I head for the South Wing to partake in a refreshing shower. The shower stalls are sleek, contemporary, and amazing in their spaciousness and comfort. Amenities are also available such as shampoo, conditioner, and bath wash. Emerging totally refreshed, I immediately discover the self-service bistro which is featuring a variety of hot and cold food selections as well as the Coffee Loft which offers freshly brewed coffee and specialty tea accompanied by bakery sweets.

I look at my watch and realize I have whiled away many hours in the decadent and yet comfortable luxury of The Bridge. Now I must rush to my gate to catch my flight to Kathmandu.
