Qatar Airways' new Premium Lounge to woo travellers at Changi Airport

Qatar Airways has unleashed its ultra-opulent new Premium Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 1.

The Premium Lounge is the pinnacle of Qatar Airways’ in-airport offering, featuring luxurious interiors and enhanced facilities that aim to narrow the gap between business and first class lounges.

“We are thrilled to have launched our latest international Premium Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport,” HE Akbar Al Baker, chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, enthused. “The lounge design is inspired by modern-day Arabic architecture, reflecting Qatar Airways’ heritage. Qatar Airways has already set one industry benchmark with our award-winning business class seat, Qsuite, now we 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 continued: “Singapore marks our fifth international Premium Lounge, and we are delighted to develop our portfolio worldwide, offering sophisticated, modern and spacious lounges to our passengers, who can expect to receive exceptional services like never before throughout their journey with Qatar Airways.”

The Premium Lounge’s visitors can relax in 700m2 of sophistication, elegance and comfort from 07:30 to 02:00. The facility’s design pays homage to Arab heritage with a contemporary twist, and its grand entrance showcases Qatar Airways’ signature ‘Marhaba’, engraved in the stand-stone wall with a luxurious display of fresh white orchids. 

Thoughtfully planned for travellers’ needs, the lounge features seven different seating areas, including the Principal Lounge, Quiet Pods, Garden Bistro, High Seating, Martini Bar, Brasserie and Private Lounge.

Guaranteeing 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 cosy, 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, with a lamp, universal plug point, wireless charger and a compartment suitable for storing handbags and personal belongings. 

Qatar Airways currently offers its unparalleled Premium Lounges in London, Paris, Beirut and Bangkok.
