cathay pacificDemonstrating its commitment to US travellers, Cathay Pacific, named “Best Trans-Pacific Airline” in the 2015 annual Skytrax World Airline Awards™, today opened an extension to the existing business and first class lounge at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

The new space, implemented by global design firm Gensler based on Cathay Pacific design, epitomizes Cathay Pacific’s focus on flawless hospitality within its signature environment of comfort and elegant simplicity.

San Francisco is Cathay Pacific’s US headquarters, where it first launched daily flights to Hong Kong in 1986, growing to a double daily service in October 2007. The airline launched an additional three flights per week in June, bringing the total number of non-stop weekly flights from SFO to Hong Kong to 17.

The only Cathay Pacific-branded lounge in the USA first opened at SFO in November 2011. It has expanded into an adjacent space, nearly doubling in size, from 5,500 square feet to a generous 9,220 square feet. Ample enough to accommodate up to 175 guests, this major addition is not just about elbowroom, it’s a reflection of everything synonymous with the joy of travel and the Cathay Pacific brand.

The creation of a sensory, holistic experience for the modern traveller is integral to the Cathay Pacific design ethos and Gensler helps bring this vision to life. The result blends together the beauty, spirit and values of contemporary Asia with all the essentials for long-haul travel.
