A major expansion into China is being planned by airport services specialist Plaza Premium Group (PPG), with a target of more than 40 new lounge openings across multiple cities in the country by 2024.
It is part of global growth plans being undertaken through partnerships with key industry stakeholders. In all, the group is committing to invest US$100m into the China, India, Indonesia and US markets over the next two years.
Currently managing two lounges in Beijing, six lounges in Shanghai and Aerotel transit hotel in Guangzhou (below), the group will have its flagship opening in October with the launch of a new Aerotel in a prime position in the new Beijing Daxing International Airport, which opens in September.
PPG founder and CEO Song Hoi-see said: “As the busiest outbound source market for travel and a destination for both international and domestic visitors, Beijing expects a dramatic rise in traveller numbers in the coming years and is already a vital transit hub for the region.
“We recognise the growth opportunities that lie ahead and our expansion plan focuses on delivering unique experiences as we continue to drive change in the travel sector and set trends for the industry.”
