Flight Club Takes Off at KL International Airport
A New Airport Dining Concept Inspired by Herbs & Seeds
2 December 2015, Kuala Lumpur ― Today, Plaza Premium Group is pleased to announce the official unveiling of its new airport dining concept ― Flight Club at KL International Airport (KLIA), Malaysia at its Official Opening Ceremony. As the name of Flight Club suggests, this brand is specifically designed for the airport where healthy dining can be made possible even on the road.
“We warmly welcome Flight Club to KLIA.” said Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, Managing Director of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) and the Guest of Honour of the ceremony. “In our 17 years of partnership with Plaza Premium Group, it is a delight to note that our passion of introducing healthy and delectable food for airport travellers has come to fruition.”
“Flight Club is indeed a fantastic addition to the range of services and facilities that we currently offer to our passengers at KLIA. It also allows us to stay ahead among our peers in enriching travellers’ dining experience with its unique concept of eating well and eating healthy when they travel through KLIA. This great addition in KLIA goes hand in hand with Malaysia Airports’ mission, which is to create joyful experiences by connecting people and businesses.” The Guest of Honour remarked.
Located across Plaza Premium Lounge on the Mezzanine Level in the Satellite Building (International Departure) of KLIA, Flight Club showcases an enticing menu of western and international cuisines, with the emphasis on the use of herbs and seeds, from rosemary to oregano, and from chia seeds to flaxseeds, creating a range of visually enticing and healthy dishes blended with natural and colourful ingredients. Informative display of mural boards about herbs and seeds are also strategically featured within Flight Club to educate travellers about better dining habits, enabling their indulgence in a luscious yet educational culinary experience that is unique to the airport.
“Eating healthy is a global trend, and Flight Club is the latest addition to our series of airport dining brands encouraging all to travel and eat well. We are very proud to launch this inaugural Flight Club at KLIA, which is also our Group’s maiden airport location more than 17 years ago”, said Mr. Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Group. “We are equally delighted to partner with KLIA in bringing this unique dining experience with healthy, theatrical and educational elements to all travellers. Inspired by herbs and seeds, Flight Club is the first airport-born international F&B concept, and we will continue to develop this brand in leading airports to promote healthy dining.” added Mr. Song.
