The Plaza Premium Group, a pioneer in airport hospitality, has opened its newest Plaza Premium Lounge at Ferenc Liszt International Airport. The facility is located in the SkyCourt and covers an area of nearly 107 square meters. The 40-seat lounge offers a wide range of services; including special magazines, on-screen entertainment and great Hungarian cuisine alongside an international gastronomic offering.
This is the eighth lounge to open for passengers at Ferenc Liszt International Airport, but Plaza Premium is the first international company to operate at Budapest Airport that is specializing in lounge operation and catering. The company won the Skytrax award for the world’s best independent airport lounge for the fifth year in a row in 2021.
“The opening of our first Plaza Premium Lounge at Budapest Airport presents very exciting opportunities for the Plaza Premium Group, as we continue to grow our footprint in Europe. Confidence is building, passenger numbers are regaining impressive growth, and the Plaza Premium Group’s ambitions to extend its 360-degree, world-class airport hospitality services and facilities in Europe are on track.
We look forward to delivering our award-winning, best-in-class signature hospitality, including Airport Lounge, Airport Meet & Greet, in-Terminal Airport Hotel, Airport Dining and other premium airport services across more airports in Europe in the months to follow,” shares Mr. Okan Kufeci, Regional General Manager, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Management, Plaza Premium Group.
The time spent at the airport is an important part of the travel experience. Budapest Airport therefore considers it important to provide a pleasant and relaxing environment for those who require premium services.
Chris Dinsdale, the CEO of Budapest Airport commented: “We are working hard every day to make Ferenc Liszt International Airport a worthy gateway to the country for passengers arriving in and departing from Hungary. In recent years, together with our airline partners, we have become a key player in the development of tourism in Hungary and Budapest, and our primary goal is to maintain and strengthen this role, by continuously improving the quality of our services and the satisfaction of our passengers.”
He added: “One of the important steps in this is the opening of the Plaza Premium Group’s lounge, where every guest can find their preferred form of relaxation among the premium services, and can have a pleasant time waiting at the airport.”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Budapest Airport and Plaza Premium pay special attention to providing a hygienic and safe environment for all passengers in the lounge. In harmony with Budapest Airport’s measures, the Plaza Premium Lounge’s We Care For Your Wellbeing program helps to maintain privacy and social distancing, with comfortable seats spaced further apart, non-contact hand sanitizers, continuous disinfection of the lounge area and air purification, strict disinfection procedures and masks worn by all lounge staff.
