Lounge closed: Club Autus is currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Eligible passengers are invited to use Club Bauhinia as an alternative.
Opened in September 2017, Hong Kong Airlines Club Autus is the hometown carrier’s second lounge at Hong Kong International Airport.
Located in the midfield concourse, Club Autus supplements Club Bauhinia, which is situated in Terminal 1.
Description courtesy of Hong Kong Airlines:
“Autus” means “growth” and “enlargement” in Latin, which parallels the rapid development of HKA. The Company commissioned Packy Lai, a young calligrapher known by the alias, “The Inkless”, to write the name plaque for the lounge using a traditional art form that embodies Hong Kong’s unique culture.
Renowned Hong Kong designer, Phill Cheng, was tasked with the creation of “Club Autus” in order to showcase the local culture which is at the core of the Company to the rest of the world. His design concept echoes the theme of “growth” inherent in the lounge’s name, be it in terms of material selection, decorations, and even food choices. In addition, “Club Autus” also puts emphasis on local nostalgia. Elements from popular films, music, and culture have been fused into the design to resonate with HKA’s slogan, “Where Hong Kong Begins”. “Club Autus” blends green architecture with modernity and style, putting natural materials such as soil, flora, and flowing water to decorative use. Meanwhile, the meticulous use of indoor plants, timber, and polished concrete injects the tranquility of nature into an urban space. Each and every aspect is seemingly derived from nature itself, so as to generate a comfortable, homey atmosphere which enables travelers to relax the body and mind.
“Club Autus” is equipped with comprehensive facilities, and is divided into sections such as the Premier Zone, Business Zone, Leisure Area, Family Zone, Personal Care Zone, and Scenery Zone, all of which cater to customer needs. There is a shower room in each of the VIP Rooms for First Class passengers to refresh themselves after a tiring journey. Visitors can also take in panoramic views of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, which is currently under construction, as well as the airport apron, through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Scenery Zone. These magnificent vistas are sure to leave travelers with a memorable impression of Hong Kong’s beauty. Furthermore, the international award-winning foldable 3D virtual mobile theater by Royole Moon™ is also available at “Club Autus”. It is designed with a scalable 800 curved screen, which is the world’s first foldable design, as well as high-fidelity noise-cancelling headphones. Visitors simply have to put on a headset to enjoy this brand new sensory experience which encompasses both 3D movies and video games.
The food and beverage services offered by “Club Autus” are equally alluring. Boasting a length of 20 meters, the food line is the longest of its kind in HKIA, and serves a variety of Chinese and Western dishes, as well as popular health foods. Furthermore, the Company has partnered with innovative local tea brand, jrink, to create a range of bespoke teas with distinctive themes. Travelers can also enjoy a selection of world renowned Hong Kong delicacies here.
