Back in 2018, Priority Pass began allowing members to use their regular annual lounge visit allowance to instead redeem a fixed dining credit or a set menu at selected airport restaurants, which has become an increasingly popular option in the programme, now offered at many locations around the world.
Many of our readers will recall that this was available at TGM in Changi Airport Terminal 2 pre-pandemic, but for the last three years in Singapore there has been no such option.
Priority Pass restaurants at Changi Airport are back
Priority Pass has announced that effective from 21st June 2023, four restaurants at Changi Airport have joined the programme, in addition to a dining offer at two other outlets, once again opening up this alternative for members.
These are also available to LoungeKey members. Participating restaurants are shown below.
Dining options at Singapore Changi Airport
|Terminal||Public Area||Transit Area|
For 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken in the T1 Transit Area or the T3 Public Area, the offer for Priority Pass members is for two complimentary chicken wings with every order of a combo meal, without deducting a lounge visit from your account (membership card must be shown).
At all other restaurants shown above, Priority Pass cardholders can use their lounge visit entitlement to take advantage of one set menu designated by each of these restaurants per 24-hour period.
A set menu represents a single lounge visit within the cardholder’s existing lounge visit allocation. For example, if a cardholder registers one guest, their guest will also be eligible to take advantage of one set menu, charged as one cardholder visit + one guest visit on the cardholder’s account.
Those with a Priority Pass via the Citi Prestige card will benefit most here – since one guest visit is free with that membership type (and since it’s unlimited, you can then head to a Priority Pass lounge anyway!).
While some of these outlets are in the Public Area at Changi Airport, do note that a valid Priority Pass card and a same-day boarding pass is required to be presented, before placing your order.
Which credit cards in Singapore include Priority Pass or LoungeKey?
The following credit cards in Singapore offer Priority Pass or LoungeKey membership, including a selected number of complimentary visits each year.
|Per Calendar Year||Per Membership Year|
+ 1 guest
|UOB Lady’s Solitaire Metal||6||—|
Accompanying guest visits, or those used over and above your annual allocation, are typically charged at US$32 per person per visit.
Plaza Premium lounges are back on Priority Pass
Alongside these new dining options, this now opens up a wide variety of both lounges and restaurants available for members to use through the programme, which is great news for members.
If it’s the food you tend to head to an airport lounge for first, rather than having a space to relax for an hour or two, it’s definitely worth checking out whether Priority Pass offers a dining option alternative at your departure airport, either via a fixed credit or a set menu for members to enjoy for one visit deduction.
Some of those options are now available at Singapore Changi Airport again, and while we have yet to see the set menus themselves, it may be worth taking a look first before simply heading to a lounge as usual.
If you’re passing through Changi Airport over the coming weeks, do let us know in more detail what each restaurant is offering Priority Pass members!
