There’s another lounge option for oneworld passengers to look forward to in Singapore this month, with what’s arguably the best business class facility at Changi Airport set to reopen its doors in Terminal 1, offering relaxation pods, a martini bar, private shower suites and à la carte dining to those flying at ‘the pointy end’.
Qatar Airways confirmed to Mainly Miles that its Singapore Premium Lounge will open its doors to eligible guests again from Wednesday 15th June 2022, the same week Qantas will reopen its Singapore First Lounge, for a full pre-pandemic selection of options for oneworld travellers departing from Changi T1.
Unlike other oneworld lounges at the airport, however, this one is exclusive to those actually flying in First Class or Business Class, with top-tier status holders unfortunately directed elsewhere, due to the intimate size of the facility.
In common with its pre-pandemic operation, the Qatar Singapore Premium Lounge will open three hours before the scheduled departure time of each of the airline’s flights to Doha, however where the airline operates an evening and 2am departure on the same night there is no closure between the two flights.
Opening hours from 15th June to 30th June 2022:
- Daily: 5.55pm to 2.40am
Opening hours from 1st July 2022:
- Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun: 5.55pm to 2.40am
- Tue, Thu, Sat: 7.25am to 10.25am and 5.55pm to 2.40am
From July, the Qatar Singapore Lounge will once again be the only oneworld facility in T1 with a morning opening window, which can be useful for certain departure timings with JAL and Malaysia Airlines.
