The SkyBridge offers unrivalled views of the airfield from a height of 28m

HONG KONG. Travel hospitality specialist Plaza Premium Group is to open Intervals, a cocktail and dining experience, in the Sky Bridge at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) in late June.

The partners called the venue “an unprecedented airport destination”. The creative new concept aims to elevate the airport experience with a food and drink programme at the world’s longest airside bridge, 28m above the ground, featuring views of the airfield.

An elevated experience: The elegant interiors of the Intervals bar and lounge

Intervals was developed by Mei Mei Song, Director of Global Brands and Transformation and the next generation of the Plaza Premium Group, together with Creative Director Victoria Chow, founder of acclaimed Hong Kong bar The Woods.

Intervals, designed by Australian architect Mitchel Squires, has taken three years to conceptualise. The name was inspired by the idea that the time of day becomes fluid while travelling, and that key actions are measured in intervals of time, from how long it takes to clear security, the transit time, the time it takes to get to the gate, or the time between boarding time and final call.

The space was designed for the airport setting, said Plaza Premium Group, from the menu design to a dedicated Intervals platform that provides knowledge about the drinks alongside beverage-focused travel inspirations. Coupled with immersive interior design and the Sky Bridge view, Intervals features partnerships with homegrown businesses and talent.

Airport Authority Hong Kong and Plaza Premium Group have a long-established business relationship since 1998, when the group introduced the world’s first independent airport lounge, Plaza Premium Lounge at HKIA.

Mei Mei Song said: “Our commitment is to make travel better and we are grateful that Hong Kong International Airport has always offered a platform for us to drive new concepts to uplift the passenger experience. As we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year, it is fortuitous that we are able to work together again to introduce a new experience by creating a world-class airport bar that is a destination in itself. We hope everyone can take a moment and treat themselves to their favourite tipple, over some good food with spectacular views of the airport, giving passengers a new way to spend their time at the airport.”

Airport Authority Hong Kong Head of Retail & Advertising Alby Tsang said, “We are delighted to welcome Intervals to join HKIA to offer passengers with elevated dining experience. Sky Bridge is the world’s longest airside bridge and it is aspired to be the iconic feature at HKIA and we hope passengers could enjoy the stunning view of airport during their visit at Intervals.”

The project also complements HKIA’s expansion plan highlighted by the completion of the third runway, which will allow the airport to accommodate an additional 30 million passengers each year. The plans aim to provide further elevated experiences as HKIA seeks to attract traffic to the Greater Bay Area, and to strengthen its claim to be the best airport in the world.
