Pacific Building flying high after landing airport executive lounge contract

PACIFIC Building will deliver a new executive lounge at Edinburgh International Airport for airport hospitality specialist Plaza Premium Group (PPG).

It will be the first Plaza Premium Lounge in Scotland and will operate in collaboration with Edinburgh Gin.

The lounge, which covers 670 sq. metres, will cater for 165 passengers and, according to Hillington-based Pacific Building, will feature ‘subtle’ Scottish elements woven into the interior design, from tartan upholstery to local artwork referencing key Scottish landmarks and iconic imagery.

The six-figure project is underway and due for completion towards the end of July 2022.

This will be the latest in a number of fit-out programmes delivered by Pacific at Edinburgh Airport.

Hong Kong-based PPG’s Okan Kufeci, regional general manager, Europe, Middle East and Africa, said, “We are pleased to offer all these unique features to our travellers at our first Plaza Premium Lounge at Edinburgh Airport. Our latest offerings prove that we are constantly improving our products and services to cater to the different market needs while incorporating local touches to the experience.

“We are excited to be able to provide our award-winning, best-in-class signature hospitality in our third location in the UK and to introduce more travellers to the Plaza Premium Group. We look forward to expanding to more locations at major airports in Europe and in the UK in the months to follow.”

Gail Taylor, director of retail and property at Edinburgh International Airport, added, “There is an overwhelming desire to reunite with family and friends, take that well-earned holiday or reconnect with clients and we are confident that 2022 will be a key year in travel’s recovery.”
