Qatar Airways opens “benchmark” premium lounge

New Changi Airport facility is a blueprint for future developments

Qatar Airways has opened a new Premium Lounge within Terminal 1 at Singapore Changi Airport, featuring an ultra luxurious interior and enhanced offerings. The new Premium Lounge is inspired by modern-day Arabic architecture, reflecting Qatar Airways’ heritage, and aims to narrow the gap between Business and First class lounges.

“Qatar Airways has already set one industry benchmark with our award-winning Business Class seat, Qsuite, now we are redefining the new standard for business class lounges,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said. “We want to ensure that the onground experience offered to our passengers matches our iconic five-star airline experience. As the first Qatar Airways lounge following this design concept, it will serve as a new standard for all our Premium Lounges going forward.”

The Singapore facility is Qatar Airways’ fifth international Premium Lounge, joining sites at London, Paris, Beirut and Bangkok.

Spanning approximately 700 square metres to accommodate over 85 passengers at once, the Premium Lounge operates daily from 7.30am to 2.00am.

The grand entrance showcases Qatar Airways’ signature ‘Marhaba’ engraved sandstone wall with a luxurious display of fresh white orchids. The lounge features seven different seating areas including the Principal Lounge, Quiet Pods, Garden Bistro, High Seating, Martini Bar, Brasserie and Private Lounge.

Catering to a premium culinary standard, the lounge is equipped with a full kitchen for freshly prepared à-la-carte food orders on demand, on top of an existing buffet spread offering an international menu. A dedicated mixologist is also available at the centrepiece Martini Bar, offering mocktail and cocktail options to complete the five-star lounge experience.

The five Quiet Pods offer a cozy, semi-private space equipped with sound proofing, reading lights, a coat hanger and universal charging points.
