Changi Airport T4 Blossom Lounge reopening on 13 September

Changi Airport Terminal 4 will have a Priority Pass lounge option from its opening week, with confirmation that the Blossom Lounge plans to reopen its doors on 13th September.

Next month sees the reopening of Changi Airport Terminal 4, thanks to a resurgence in travel following a relaxation of border restrictions in Singapore and around the region, now that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is (hopefully) behind us.


This will be the first time Terminal 4 has handled passengers since the final flight departure from the facility in the early hours of 15th May 2020.

As part of the reopening announcement, Changi Airport Group (CAG) stated that it was working with the operator of T4’s sole third-party lounge to provide services to passengers, and now there’s some further news to report here.

Blossom Lounge to reopen on 13th September

A spokesperson for Plaza Premium, who operate the Blossom Lounge at T4 in a joint venture with SATS, confirmed to Mainly Miles this week that the facility would indeed be reopening in tandem with T4’s relaunch on 13th September 2022.

“The Blossom Lounge is targeted to re-open on 13 September 2022”

The Blossom Lounge first opened along with T4 itself in October 2017, and offers a generous 1,100 sq m of floorspace, with seating capacity for 280 guests.

The lounge is located on the mezzanine level above the main departures concourse, after immigration and security, and we’ve got a review from our visit shortly after it first opened in late 2017.

The lounge is spacious, modern and has a decent food and beverage selection, though some premium pours and barista coffees were offered at an additional charge, prior to the temporary lounge closure.

Shower facilities are also available, but with only two private shower rooms available usage is limited to 20 minutes, to allow as many passengers as possible a chance to benefit.

Prior to COVID-19, the Blossom Lounge was open 24 hours a day during the summer season (April to October), but it did have variable hours in the winter season (November to March), to align with T4’s flight schedules.


We are awaiting confirmation of the reopening lounge hours from 13th September at the time of writing, but we expect the facility will cater for most (if not all) scheduled T4 departures.

Blossom lounge access

The Blossom Lounge will re-establish its position as Terminal 4’s only third-party lounge, providing paid entry to all travellers, and complimentary entry to members of selected lounge access programmes.

The good news is that this facility was spared from the Priority Pass – Plaza Premium divorce of mid-2021, meaning many of our readers holding a credit card with a Priority Pass attached will still enjoy access here.

We have not been able to confirm paid access rates for this lounge at the time of writing, so these may have changed.

What about the Cathay Pacific lounge?

Terminal 4 is home to two lounges, the Blossom Lounge and the Cathay Pacific Lounge.

Unfortunately, Cathay Pacific is currently running a skeleton schedule of just three weekly departures from Singapore to Hong Kong, a far cry from its pre-COVID tally of 63 weekly flights to both Hong Kong and Bangkok.


At the time of writing, an increase to four flights per week is proposed from October 2022, progressively increasing to seven times weekly by the end of 2022, as Hong Kong slowly relaxes its travel restrictions.

Even these increased schedules are unlikely to warrant the reopening of Cathay’s own dedicated lounge, especially considering that no other oneworld carriers will fly from T4.

We contacted the airline to clarify their intentions for lounge-worthy passengers departing from Singapore after the move to T4 next month, and received the following response.

“As the Cathay Pacific Lounge at T4 remains temporarily closed, eligible passengers and members will be invited to Blossom Lounge.”

Cathay Pacific is currently using the Plaza Premium Lounge at Changi T1.
