Plaza Premium Lounge was selected by airport operator, Finavia, through a public tender and will be located in the non-Schengen terminal in line with the expansion of the new central plaza.
“At Helsinki Airport we work hard, together with our partners, to ensure a smooth, high-quality travel experience for our customers and the Plaza Premium Lounge is a wonderful new addition to our ever-growing range of services," says the gateway's vice president of commercial services, Elena Stenholm.
"It will give our 20 million annual passengers new possibilities to relax before, after or between flights at the non-Schengen terminal."
The three-time ‘Skytrax World’s Best Independent Lounge’ award winner notes that it is committed to providing travellers with a "haven away from the hustle and bustle of the airport".
The new Plaza Premium Lounge Helsinki will feature comfortable seating, a live kitchen, a bar, shower facilities, recharging stations, complimentary Wi-Fi, computer workstations, and a kids’ zone for family travellers to relax and unwind before their travel journey.
“Our decision to expand to Helsinki Airport was a natural one as Finland is a major transit hub offering the shortest route between Europe and Asia," says Plaza Premium Group's business development director, Jonathan Song.
"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 boasts facilities in over 40 major international airports across thr world, counting London Heathrow, Rome, Vancouver, Abu Dhabi, Brisbane, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore Changi among its clients.
