With its soaring spaces, bathed in natural light, Hong Kong International Airport forms a spectacular gateway to Asia’s most exciting city and represents one of the best airports in the world. The airport is the travel hub of Cathay Pacific, which manages a total of seven lounges at terminal 1 & 2 that rank among the world’s most luxurious and exclusive airline lounges. When it’s your first time in the airport, it might be quite difficult to find out where all the lounges are located and which one is best.
These lounges are spread throughout the terminal so that passengers can relax in the lounge nearest to their gate. However, The Wing lounge is a step up from the other lounges, so I advise you to visit The Wing, and then proceed to your gate around 15 minutes before boarding time. The Wing lounge complex is located immediately behind the security checkpoint (near gates 1-4) and houses a First Class and Business Class lounge. I have previously reviewed the Wing airport lounge.
The Pier lounge, located near gate 65, represents Cathay Pacific’s flagship lounge complex and features a separate lounge facility for First and Business Class passengers. This is the other “best lounge” to use while waiting for your flight as it offers some of the best facilities and food.
The Bridge is an exclusive Business Class lounge and located one floor below the main concourse near gate 35.
The Cabin airport lounge is an exclusive Business Class lounge located near gate 25.
Cathay Pacific also has a small arrival lounge located between terminal 1 and 2.
