Cathay Pacific opened The Bridge, the airline’s sixth and newest passenger lounge at Hong Kong International (HKG) last October. The lounge is located on Level 5 of the West Concourse near Gate 35, and is open to both First and Business Class passengers. Cathay says the lounge offers “understated luxury”.
The Bridge consists of North and South wings, each extending from the central Reception area. The North Wing features The Bakery, which offers freshly baked bread and pizzas, as well as sandwiches, pastries, Asian and Western soups, and fresh salads. The North Wing also features the iconic Long Bar together with a television lounge and general seating area. The South Wing features The Bistro, a self-service area where you can enjoy a variety of high-quality Asian and Western hot dishes and cold food selections, including desserts and salads. At the Coffee Loft, you can obtain freshly brewed coffee and specialty tea, as well as freshly baked muffins, pastries and cookies. The nine Shower Suites located in the South Wing are furnished with natural Travertine stone, complemented by oak slat walls.
The Bridge is open to First and Business Class passengers, Silver or above Marco Polo Club members, and Sapphire or above oneworld members departing or transiting in Hong Kong. Opening hours are from 5:30am until the last departure.
Cathay Pacific commissioned world-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners to design The Bridge. Developed with a more residential design intent, The Bridge makes passengers feel relaxed and “at home”, and is the ideal space in which to unwind before a flight. Cathay Pacific Chief Operating Officer Ivan Chu said: “The opening of The Bridge raises the bar for premium ground products and services even further. Our significant investments in offering the very best to our passengers on the ground and in the air will continue in enhancing their overall experience when flying with Cathay,” Chu added. The opening of The Bridge means that Cathay Pacific now has six lounges at its Hong Kong hub, offering passengers an unrivaled selection of lounges, each with its own individual identity.

The South Wing
The North Wing
The lounge is extremely modern, clean, has excellent wifi, and multiple outlets at each seat. The staff are what you would expect with Cathay, someone came over to refill our drinks and to see if we needed anything every few minutes. The lounge was also quite empty, I counted 26 total other passengers in both wings.
Now, remember this lounge is for First and Business passengers. Looking for ultra luxury?
