“Our goal remains unchanged, that is to create a journey to make travel better for all travellers,” he added.

Keeping on its expansion momentum, Plaza Premium Group added Plaza Premium Lounge in Sihanoukville in Cambodia, Ahmedabad in India, Rome in Italy, Cebu in the Philippines, Langkawi in Malaysia and Helsinki in Finland in the past year to its global network of more than 160 locations in over 44 international airports across 22 countries and regions serving 15 million travellers every year.
