Singapore Airlines has announced a S$50 million upgrade of its lounge in Terminal 3 at Changi Airport. In line for upgrades are the SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold Lounges, in addition to The Private Room and First Class Lounge.
The renovations are set to kick off in August 2019, with completion by mid-2021. Overall, the changes will see an increase of 30% in space and total customer capacity for the Terminal 3 lounges.
Lounge upgrades are always a complex project – as airlines work to minimize disruption. In this case, the process will be carried out over four phases. Up first will be the Business Class Lounge. This will be followed by the First Class Lounge and The Private Room, and finally the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge.
Customers affected by renovation works will be invited to temporary lounges to ensure minimal disruption during this period.
The Business Class Lounge will be expanded and feature four distinct zones catering to travellers with different needs. If you have a short transit, you can have a light snack in a relaxed café setting. More time on your hands? Then you may explore a full selection of Asian and international cuisines in the dining hall. This will include live stations offering signature local delights.
The much maligned KrisFlyer Gold Lounge will double in capacity and include dedicated working spaces. Singapore Airlines will also address one of the big criticisms of the lounge. The update lounge will gain restrooms and showers.
Moving upmarket, Suites and First Class customers can look forward to a brand new The Private Room and First Class Lounge. These will include carefully designed luxurious and intimate seating spaces suitable for both work and rest. The First Class Lounge will continue to feature a flagship bar, and The Private Room, a full-service fine dining section within the lounge. Customers can look forward to an enhanced epicurean journey with fresh and seasonally curated dining offerings, on top of the perennial local favourites.
