The new lounge operator was selected through a public tendering process.
“At Helsinki Airport we work hard together with our partners to ensure a smooth, high-quality travel experience for our customers," says Elena Stenholm, vice president of commercial services at Helsinki Airport.
"Plaza Premium Lounge is a wonderful new addition to our ever-growing range of services, giving our 20 million annual passengers a possibility to relax before, after or between flights at Non Schengen terminal."
The new Plaza Premium Lounge Helsinki will offer a range of lounge services and facilities for travellers departing, transiting and arriving at Helsinki Airport.
According to the operator, it will feature comfortable seating, a live kitchen, a bar, shower facilities, recharging stations, complimentary Wi-Fi, computer workstations, and a kid zone for "family travellers to relax and unwind before their travel journey at Helsinki Airport".
“Our decision to expand to Helsinki Airport was a natural one. Finland is a major transit hub offering the shortest route between Europe and Asia," notes Jonathan Song, business development director of Plaza Premium Group.
"We look forward to extending our airport hospitality expertise in our third market in Europe. This partnership will be another major milestone in achieving our global ambitions.”
Plaza Premium Lounge now operates in over 40 major international airports such as London Heathrow, Rome, Vancouver, Toronto, Abu Dhabi, Brisbane, Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and New Delhi.
