Airport hospitality services company Plaza Premium Group is set to expand its global footprint and enhance products across 11 international airports, one of them being Toronto's YYZ. 

Scheduled to fully operate in the second quarter of 2020, a mega lounge will open in YYZ's Departures terminal, occupying nearly 1,200 square metres as the largest independent pay-per-use lounge in Canada. 

"Year 2019 and 2020 mark a big leap forward for Plaza Premium Group and we are committed to serve over 16 million travellers by the end of 2020, a 10% increase compared to where we are now," says Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Group.

"In addition to expanding in the US, China and Indonesia as part of our US$100 million investment in the coming years, we continue to strengthen our leading position in the existing markets by creating a holistic departure, transit and arrival experience."

Launched in 1998, Plaza Premium Group will be operating in more than 175 locations across 47 international airports by 2020. DFW and DEN in the U.S., LHR in the UK, and Australia's SYD are among the other 10 airports where Plaza is investing.
