If you find yourself in Singapore’s Changi Airport with a few hours to kill and happen to be in possession of oneworld Emerald status, a British Airways Executive Club Gold card or are travelling in First Class on a oneworld airline, you should check out the new Qantas First Class lounge.
It occupies a brand new site in the airport and opened on Monday. Photos and early feedback appear to be excellent.
It is located near the D gates in Terminal 1, which is the opposite end to the C gates where the existing Qantas business class lounge is. It takes around 10 minutes to walk from one to the other.
The new Qantas First Class Lounge has seating for up to 240 passengers, which is a significant boost to capacity. This should mean an end to the overcrowding at the business class lounge, so you may benefit from this new lounge even if you can’t use it yourself. It is open between 14:30 and midnight daily.
It is designed by David Caon and Akin Ateliertas and looks very, very stylish:
…with lots of polished brass, marble, leather and wood to give it a very warm feeling. There is a large dining room with an impressive a la carte menu:
… as well as ten terrazzo shower suites:
The lounge features a range of zones and seating choices, from more office-style desks to casual armchairs and sofas:
If you are passing through Singapore soon the new Qantas First Class lounge definitely looks like it is worth trying out.
