Now passengers travelling in first and business class with Cathay Pacific can get away from it a;; in the Deck, the airline’s newest lounge at Hong Kong International Airport.

Located close to gate 16 in Terminal 1 and designed in the signature style of Cathay Pacific’s award-winning lounges in Hong Kong and across its network, the Deck, which opened last week, emulates a “contemporary living room” environment of understated luxury, helping travellers to feel at ease and providing a sense of well-being.

“The Deck builds on the formula that has made our other new lounges around the world so popular with our customers. Investing in experiences that our customers value and consider important is at the heart of our product and service philosophy, and helps us differentiate ourselves from any other airline. We look forward to welcoming the lounge’s first passengers,” said the airline’s chief customer and commercial officer Paul Loo.

Like other Cathay Pacific lounges, the dining experience is at the heart of The Deck, with the main lounge providing a range of self-service, freshly made international offerings. Not to be missed is the Noodle Bar. Passengers who yearn for a taste of Hong Kong can choose from a selection of local classics, including wonton noodles in a hearty broth, fish ball noodles and a variety of dim sum and buns. Ready-to-order Asian delights, such as dan dan noodles and Japanese-style vegetarian noodles, are also available.

At 823 square metres, the Deck has seating for 180 passengers and is fitted with designer furniture and lighting carefully selected for practicality, comfort and privacy, while the use of natural materials, plenty of greenery and artworks by local artists add to the lounge’s welcoming atmosphere.

The lounge is further equipped with a relaxation room zone featuring bespoke solo chairs, as well as eight shower suites, washroom facilities and a range of comfortable seating throughout.
