Any other year this would be in danger of sounding like an April Fools’ joke, but in these times of coronavirus and significantly reduced flight schedules Singapore Airlines was deadly serious this morning when it confirmed that it was closing The Private Room at Changi’s Terminal 3 until further notice.

The Private Room is SIA’s exclusive sanctuary for passengers departing in Suites and First Class, and unofficially also welcomes those arriving in these cabins who hold on to their previous boarding pass.


Our comprehensive review of the lounge details the à la carte dining selections, including lobster or U.S. prime burger for dinner, plus of course the vintage Dom Perignon (lately Tattinger Comtes) Champagne.

Even on a typical day, The Private Room doesn’t become crowded since it caters for only around 300 First Class and Suites passengers during its regular 5.30am to 2.30am opening hours.

Those departing in Suites or First Class on Singapore Airlines for the foreseeable future will now be welcomed in the adjacent T3 SilverKris First Class lounge.
