Great news for Qantas, Emirates and oneworld passengers departing from Singapore, with the Australian carrier confirming to Executive Traveller that its fantastic First Class lounge will be reopening, to coincide with the return of ‘red roo’ Airbus A380 flights from Changi to Sydney and London next month.
This will be the second Qantas lounge to reopen at Changi since its facilities at the airport closed their doors in March 2020, with the Business lounge serving all eligible passengers since early December 2021.
This is great news for First Class passengers and eligible status holders, who will finally enjoy the à la carte dining experience and premium ambiance in the 240-seat facility, complete with nine swanky shower suites and a manned cocktail bar, from 18th June 2022.
The Qantas Singapore First Lounge had a painfully short existence pre-pandemic, open for only four months before being shuttered as the airline significantly reduced passenger services from the airport.
Currently all lounge-eligible Emirates, Qantas and oneworld passengers can use the Qantas Business Class Lounge at Changi T1 prior to their flights, but this reopening will allow the Business Class facility to return to its previous role.
