Mr. Song Hoi-see transformed the airport hospitality services industry by establishing the first pay-in airport lounge in the world for all travellers regardless of their airline or class of travel.

Plaza Premium Group has become the benchmark for airport value-added services. The group currently operates more than 180 locations in over 49 airports globally, and employs more than 5,000 employees, serving over 20 million passengers around the world annually. The success of the business model has prompted worldwide airport authorities to open their doors for independent lounge facilities and value-added airport services as part of a bid to enhance the overall traveller experience as well as airport service quality.
