EVA opens new Diamond VIP Lounge at Taoyuan International Airport

Frequent flyer haven also serves Premium Laurel Class passengers

EVA Air opened its roomy new Diamond VIP lounge in Terminal 2 at Taoyuan International Airport on January 20, 2011. The luxurious haven has been created for the exclusive use of Evergreen Club Diamond Card members and Premium Laurel Class ticket holders. With plush leather seating, a gourmet buffet and the latest technology for busy travelers, the spacious Diamond VIP lounge comfortably seats 160 passengers in approximately 13,000 sq. ft. (1,200 square meters). The new lounge is a welcoming retreat for EVA Diamond Card frequent flyers and Premium Laurel Class passengers traveling to and from Taiwan, or making onward connections to China and throughout Asia.

The main seating area is creatively designed with a ceiling painted to evoke an azure blue sky with soft, wispy clouds. It’s artistically lit with a high-tech LED system that simulates sunrise and sunset every hour. Other areas are just as thoughtfully appointed, and meeting spaces are comfortable and relaxing.

The Milky Way theme of the buffet is captured above the serving area by a large oval porthole that frames a painting of our galaxy, twinkling with Pinpoint LED lights and creating the feeling of a starry night. As passengers relax and wait for flights, they can enjoy fresh coffee, Western and Chinese snacks and 100 percent natural Swiss ice cream. Healthy choices for meals or in-between include organic fruit and vegetable salads, high-fiber five-grain breads and a selection of sandwiches. During holiday seasons, fine dining choices such as carved beef fillet, pork ribs, Din Tai Fung steamed dumplings and the Chinese delicacy, Buddha Jumps over the Wall, are served.

EVA’s new Diamond Lounge also provides four shower rooms, each with a temperature-controlled massage showerhead and different theme. Passengers can choose to refresh themselves in a classic, art deco, Japanese Zen or modern environment.

The Diamond Lounge is equipped to help busy executives stay on top of business responsibilities, too. Technological conveniences include 802.11n wireless internet service with transmission speeds of up to 100Mbit/sec.

It took expert building craftsmen three months to construct EVA’s welcoming new Diamond VIP Lounge. It complements the airline’s other two VIP accommodations in Terminal 2 of Taoyuan International Airport, the Evergreen Garden and Business Class Lounges. A lush, peaceful setting, the Evergreen Garden is available exclusively for Diamond Card members. The Business Class Lounge gives Evergreen Club Gold and Silver Card members a warm and comfy place to rest and relax while they wait to catch flights.
