A US$55m (about £42m) global expansion with 15 new hotel or lounge openings and enhancements across 11 international airports has been launched by hospitality services provider Plaza Premium Group.
Founder and CEO Song Hoi-see said this year and next marked “a big leap forward”, with the group committed to serving more than 16m travellers by the end of 2020, a 10% increase on present figures.
Among the changes, Plaza is planning an expansion of its airport meet-and-greet service Allways, claimed to be the first of its kind to be available to all travellers, with a launch at Dallas Fort Worth International, joining Toronto, New Delhi and Macau.
The group’s main brand, Plaza Premium Lounge, will launch at Dubai International Airport next month, followed by Sydney Airport Terminal 1 in the first quarter of 2020. The brand will also debut in the US next year with a domestic lounge and an international lounge at Dallas Fort Worth and an international lounge at Denver.
Plans for the group’s one-of-a-kind in-terminal airport hotel concept, Aerotel, include an opening at Sydney Airport in the third quarter of next year, while increased demand has led to the expansion of the Kuala Lumpur property with 17 rooms added.
