Singapore Airlines (SIA) has unveiled new flagship SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold lounges at Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 3, following a SGD$50 million re-design, upgrade, and expansion project.
The Private Room, the First Class section of the SilverKris Lounge, the Business Class section of the SilverKris Lounge, and the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge can collectively accommodate around 1,150 people within their 6,100 square-metres of space. This means that there are 30% more seats than before. This also doubles the capacity that was available during the pandemic while the upgrading works were going on.
SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold lounges
Working with renowned Singapore-headquartered hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates, the airline has redeveloped the SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold lounges by incorporating contemporary finishes and modern amenities, while embodying a timeless elegance.
The Business Class section of the SilverKris Lounge is 20% larger, with Business Class passengers and PPS Club members spoilt for choice with four distinct seating sections. These include a quiet rest area to catch some shut-eye, a main dining hall with an extensive self-service buffet, a living room area with sofa seats and productivity pods, as well as an open concept courtyard-style area that offers light bites for the traveller on-the-go. ones. A new full-service bar, with a barista in the morning and bartender service in the evening, allows passengers to enjoy their favourite brew or tipple with a view of aircraft taking off and landing.
At double the size than before, the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge has an open and contemporary design with an expansive view of the airport runway. In response to passengers’ feedback, the lounge now includes an expanded dining area and open concept working spaces, as well as dedicated restrooms and shower facilities. Customers can enjoy a wide variety of meal and drink options including favourites such as laksa, chwee kueh, and freshly steamed dim sum.
The Private Room and First Class lounge
The Private Room is the most exclusive space within the SilverKris Lounge. It is dotted with elegant design elements that exude luxury, such as the custom-designed Lalique light dome that welcomes every passenger at the lobby. With a capacity for 78 Suites and First Class passengers, it includes well-appointed booth seats and day rooms that are conducive for work and rest. The Private Room also offers a full fine dining experience, with exquisite cuisine and beverage options.
