Welcome to The Pier, our premium lounge for First and Business class passengers in the Hong Kong International Airport.

Located at Gate 63 in the North West concourse of the Hong Kong airport, The Pier is designed by London-based design studio StudioIlse to express the heartfelt warmth, considered simplicity and contemporary Asian values at the heart of the Cathay Pacific new brand design ethos.

The Pier First Class Lounge reopened in June 2015 following an extensive renovation. Take a look at our short video of The Pier First Class Lounge.


Measuring 2,061 square metres with the maximum seating capacity of 231 guests, the Pier First Class Lounge is an environment that helps you relax by engaging the senses and focusing on wellbeing.

The lounge is designed with the concept of a contemporary apartment in mind, with an atmosphere that evokes a domestic level of comfort.


Design elements

All elements of the lounge have been curated to support the idea of this being an apartment that you are a guest in.

This is reflected in the choice of materials, furniture and lighting; the same considered approach has been taken with the selection of art, music and food.

Warm, tactile and timeless materials such as green onyx, limestone, and bronze are used, suggesting the spirit of contemporary Asia. Acoustics are softened where possible, and a considered approach has been adopted in the lighting.



Wellbeing is the core focus of The Pier First Class Lounge.

Complimentary foot massage is introduced for the first time in our lounges to cater for your physical and emotional needs during travelling.

You’re also welcome to request neck and shoulder massages.


In addition to the Foot Massage, the Retreat area consists also of eight Day Suites, each wrapped in walnut and with a view over the runway. All our Day Suites furnished with a comfortable daybed, a reading light, a mirror, and heavy curtains for added personal privacy.

The Pier is also fitted with 14 Showers furnished with natural limestone and timber.



The Pier First Class Lounge features the Dining Room - a warm, handsome room offering à la carte dining, table service and freshly prepared dishes made-to-order by the chef.


At the Pantry, you can enjoy grab and go delicacies with items changing throughout the day. Sample a wide selection of breakfast items in the morning, or try the all-day menu.


Take a seat at the full-service Bar to enjoy a wide selection of wines and cocktails.


Sensory experience

The Pier First Class Lounge is the first of our lounges to feature our bespoke fragrance.

In using a signature scent – a soothing blend of lavender, bamboo, green tea, jasmine and more – the arrival at a Cathay Pacific Lounge is instantly recognisable, meaning you can relax in a familiar feeling of a comfortable home.

The Pier Business Class Lounge is closed for refurbishment from 1 July 2015 onwards and will re-open in the second quarter of 2016 to offer our passengers an even better experience on the ground.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The Pier is open daily from 5:30am until the last flight departure.
