Qatar Airways has officially opened its new premium lounge at Singapore Changi Airport at Terminal 1. The new Singapore lounge serves as the benchmark and blueprint for Qatar Airways’ future premium lounges worldwide. Featuring an ultra luxurious interior and enhanced offerings, the new premium lounge aims to narrow the gap between Business and First Class lounges.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said: “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 the industry benchmark for business travel 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 on-ground experience offered to our passengers is on a par with 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.”

Spanning approximately 700 square metres to handle about 85 passengers, the premium lounge is available to Qatar Airways Business Class passengers offering 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. 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.
