Singapore Airlines has revealed some long-awaited news today, confirming that a S$50 million major revamp of the SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold lounges at Changi Airport Terminal 3 will kick off next month.
The existing facilities, now over 11 years old, will be replaced with brand new designs by American international hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates. A fresh look and ‘modern yet homely’ feel is promised.
The Business Class lounge will get a full service bar, while KrisFlyer Elite Gold members will rejoice in the news that their Gold lounge will finally get its own toilets and showers!
Completion is due by mid-2021, and the project will also include a brand new ‘The Private Room’.
SilverKris Business Class Lounge
The first lounge to be updated will be the SilverKris Business Class lounge, with work starting next month in August 2019.
The new lounge will be an expanded space, to accommodate more customers. That’s welcome news for those familiar with the late night crowds in the existing facility prior to the bank of midnight departures to Europe, Australia and the USA.
The lounge will be split into four distinct ‘zones’:
- A ‘relaxed café’ for short transits, featuring light snacks.
- A full ‘dining hall’ featuring a selection of Asian and international cuisines, including live stations that will offer signature local delights.
- A full service manned bar, which doubles up as a self service breakfast station in the mornings (but we hope still pours a Champagne or Bloody Mary even at those hours!).
- A ‘Productivity Pod and rest area’ for customers who need a discreet corner to catch up on work, or get some sleep on a chaise lounge before their flight.
SilverKris First Class Lounge
The revamped First Class lounge is flagged as a carefully designed luxurious and intimate space, suitable for both work and rest.
