Plaza Premium Lounge, the world’s biggest independent airport lounge network, together with Aeroporti di Roma, has announced the official opening of its operation in Rome. Plaza Premium Lounge Rome marks a new addition to its 160+ outlets around the world and is its sixth location within Europe.
Strategically located in Terminal 3 (Area E), at the Extra Schengen Departures on the Upper Level of Rome Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, this elegant and contemporary lounge spanning over 1,000 square metres, is a premium facility at the new airport terminal that offers travellers a tranquil oasis to relax ahead of their flight.
Open to all travellers regardless of their choice of airline or class of travel, this state-of-the-art independent airport lounge has adopted the use of fine timber, polished marble and quality fabric in its design, creating a stylish yet cosy atmosphere for the travellers. Its architectural design is inspired by the Roman Colosseum arena and with the familiar roman column pillars, it reinforces a sense of place of this country, rich in heritage and cultural history.
Offering 300 comfortable seats including the signature honeycomb seating to provide extra privacy, this lounge is open 24 hours daily and also houses six shower rooms – the first of its kind in Fiumicino Airport – with amenities for guests to refresh before their onward journey.
Other facilities and services include complimentary Wi-Fi, a series of entertainment including an extensive variety of digital reading material and TV channels plus ample recharging stations for all electronic devices.
Providing guests with an array of delectable food and beverage options is one of the hallmarks of Plaza Premium Lounge. Introducing live cooking stations, guests can enjoy an interactive airport dining experience where chefs prepare their orders upon request alongside a sumptuous buffet of mouth-watering selections. The Bar complements the dining experience with a selection of juices, soft drinks and specialty coffees and teas.
Travellers have the option of pre-booking on the website (www.plaza-network.com) for two and five hours lounge use packages. Prices start at EUR 40 for two hours’ lounge access including shower.
Speaking at the Grand Opening ceremony today, Mr Song Hoi-see, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Plaza Premium Group said, ”We are very excited to be in Rome and are equally delighted to be in partnership with Aeroporti di Roma.
