Qatar Airways has officially opened its new Premium Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 1.
The new lounge serves as the benchmark and blueprint for Qatar Airways’ future Premium Lounges worldwide. Featuring an ultra-luxurious interior and enhanced offerings, the Premium Lounge aims to narrow the gap between business and first class lounges.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker spoke on the development: “We are thrilled to have launched our latest international Premium Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport. The lounge design is inspired by modern-day Arabic architecture, reflecting Qatar Airways’ heritage.
“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. 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,” Al Baker added.
Spanning approximately 700m2 to accommodate over 85 passengers at once, the Premium Lounge operates daily from 07:30 to 02:00, offering Qatar Airways business class passengers a sophisticated environment with contemporary Arabic design elements.
The grand entrance showcases Qatar Airways’ signature ‘Marhaba’ engraved stand-stone wall with a luxurious display of fresh white orchids. A botanical patterned wall inspired by Singapore’s affinity to horticulture and greenery is also added for a local touch.
Thoughtfully planned for different travellers’ needs, the lounge features seven different seating areas including the Principal Lounge, Quiet Pods, Garden Bistro, High Seating, Martini Bar, Brasserie and Private Lounge.
Qatar Airways portfolio of Premium Lounges continues to grow across key markets. The Premium Lounge can be found in London, Paris, Beirut and Bangkok.
