Qatar Airways Launches New Premium Lounge At Singapore Changi Airport
Qatar Airways officially opened its new Premium Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1.
The new Singapore lounge serves as the benchmark and blueprint for future Premium Lounges of Qatar Airways worldwide. Featuring an ultra luxurious interior and enhanced offerings, the new Premium Lounge aims to narrow the gap between business and first class lounges.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive HE Akbar Al Baker said they are thrilled to have launched their latest international Premium Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport, inspired by modern-day Arabic architecture and reflecting the heritage of Qatar Airways.
He said that Qatar Airways already set one industry benchmark with the award-winning Business Class seat Qsuite and now, they are redefining the new standard for business class lounges.
We want to ensure that the onground experience offered to our passengers matches our iconic five-star airline experience. As the first Qatar Airways lounge following this design concept, it will serve as a new standard for all our Premium Lounges going forward.
HE Al Baker also said that Singapore marks their fifth international Premium Lounge, and they are delighted to develop their portfolio worldwide, offering sophisticated, modern and spacious lounges to passengers who can expect exceptional services like never before throughout their journey with Qatar Airways.
Spanning approximately 700 square metres to accomodate over 85 passengers at once, the Premium Lounge operates daily from 7:30 am to 2 am, offering Qatar Airways Business Class passengers a sophisticated environment with contemporary Arabic design elements.
The grand entrance showcases Qatar Airways’ signature ‘Marhaba’ engraved stand-stone wall with a luxurious display of fresh white orchids. A botanical patterned wall inspired by Singapore’s affinity to horticulture and greenery is also added for a local touch.
Thoughtfully planned for different traveller needs, the lounge features seven different seating areas including the Principal Lounge, Quiet Pods, Garden Bistro, High Seating, Martini Bar, Brasserie and Private Lounge.
Catering to a premium culinary standard, the lounge is equipped with a full kitchen for freshly-prepared à la carte food orders on demand, on top of an existing buffet spread offering an international menu. A dedicated mixologist is also available at the centrepiece Martini Bar, offering mocktail and cocktail options to complete the five-star lounge experience.
Guests wishing to relax in a quiet environment can occupy one of the five Quiet Pods, which offer a cozy, semi-private space equipped with sound proofing, reading lights, a coat hanger and universal charging points.
Other unique features include custom furniture pieces that offer both style and comfort to each passenger. This includes a carefully designed sideboard, strategically placed next to the seats, and includes a lamp, universal plug point, wireless charger and a compartment suitable for storing handbags and personal belongings.
Qatar Airways has a growing portfolio of Premium Lounges in key markets. These exclusive Arabic-inspired lounges are located in London, United Kingdom, Paris, France, Beirut, Lebanon, and Bangkok, Thailand.
The award-winning airline currently operates its state-of-the-art Airbus A350-1000 aircraft on its Singapore route. With three daily flights between Singapore and Doha, the advanced aircraft offers 327 seats across two cabins – 46 Qsuite Business Class seats and 281 extra-wide 18-inch seats in Economy Class.
