The Wing - The World’s Most Exclusive Balcony

The Wing is Cathay Pacific’s flagship lounge at the Hong Kong International Airport. It set a new standard in airline ground service when it launched in 1998, offering passengers unparalleled levels of comfort and convenience.

With a vision to elevate the passenger experience to the next level, Cathay Pacific commissioned world-renowned Foster + Partners to redesign The Wing and embarked on a complete renovation of its signature lounge in late-2010 and has completed the final phase of the renovation at First Class Lounge in February 2013.

Open ceilings and unobstructed views remain the hallmarks of The Wing. The original minimalist design is enhanced by contemporary and refreshing elements intended to re-establish The Wing as one of the best airport lounges in the world.   Inside this exclusive space, passengers have the freedom to recharge, relax, or catch up on some work.

The furniture featured in The Wing comes from some of the world’s best craftsmen. These contemporary pieces are complemented by Cathay Pacific’s unique Solus Chair which was designed by Cathay Pacific and Foster + Partners around the needs of the single traveller and is handcrafted by Poltrona Frau in Italy.

First Class Lounge

In continuation of the design principles behind The Wing, the First Class lounge features extensive use of natural materials in keeping with the minimalist design. Reflective black glass walls and “Nero Marquina” black marble floors are accentuated by the clean, crisp white marble and the warm colours of natural Eucalyptus wood walls to create a premium but distinctive and comfortable environment.

Upon arrival at the First Class Lounge, you will be greeted with a welcome drink at our newly-introduced feature – The Champagne Bar, which will provide you with a touch of exuberance before heading to the main lounge.

The Haven remains an iconic feature of The Wing’s First Class Lounge. This hugely popular dining area has been expanded to more than double its original capacity.  You can experience the greatly enhanced à la carte menu complemented by recommended wine pairings together with a wide range of Asian and Western buffet dishes. 

Outside The Haven is a full-service bar surrounded by a setting of comfortable bar and armchair seating options – where you can relax and enjoy an up-close view of the airport runway over pre-meal drinks.

You may also enjoy the new style and comfort at one of the five Cabanas, which features a spacious shower, a full-sized bath and a comfortable day bed, providing a calm, relaxing and private sanctuary for you to unwind before the journey.  There are also 12 luxurious shower suites available if you simply wish to freshen up before departure.

For quiet times, you can stay in touch with news and information in The Reading room where provides a variety of international magazines and newspapers. In the IT Zone, PCs and individual printers are available for you to stay connected all the time.
