Qantas is planning to open a Singapore first class lounge at Changi Airport. At the same time, the existing Qantas Singapore Lounge used for all passengers will be expanded.
The Australian airline recently switched its London stopover flights from Dubai back to Singapore. This reduced costs for the airline but has also resulted in the lounge being overcrowded.
Qantas Singapore First Class Lounge
Visiting a Qantas first class lounge is some experience and it should be as they are considered some of the best in the world. Don’t believe me? I reviewed the Sydney first class lounge right here.
These lounges exist in Sydney, Melbourne and Los Angeles, with all other Qantas international lounges being a shared concept. The new Singapore first class lounge underscores the importance of this station to the airline.
Pre-flight dining is an important feature of these lounges, with world class food available. Signature dishes include the famous Salt and Pepper Calamari, as well as the deconstructed Pavlova.
An artists impression of the new dining area is above, with reception at the top of this post. The new lounge will accommodate 240 people and be open to oneworld Emerald frequent flyers in addition to those flying in first class.
Development of the Singapore first class lounge starts in April 2019, with the facility set to be open by the end of that year. Presumably the existing facility will be expanded during the same time frame.
Featuring showers, a cocktail bar and of course a dining room, nothing has been mentioned about spa treatments. It is a hallmark of the Sydney and Melbourne lounges, being able to get a complimentary 20 minute treatment before your flight. Hopefully this will come to Singapore too.
What do you think of Qantas opening a dedicated first class lounge in Singapore? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
