Qatar Airways has now officially inaugurated its new lounge at Singapore Changi Airport, joining the existing network of Premium Lounges at airport such as London Heathrow, Paris CDG and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi. The lounge in Singapore is the fifth lounge in the Qatar Airways network.

The new lounge measures 700 sqm with capacity for 85 passengers. It is located airside in terminal 1 and is open from 7.30 am until 2 am.

Passengers who have visited some of the other Qatar Airways lounges will recognise most of the lounge concepts and the lounge design with its traditional Arabic theme. The entrance has for example the signature Marhaba stand-stone with fresh white orchids. There is also a botanical patterned wall in the dining area.

Access rules

In contrast to most other OneWorld lounges the Qatar Airways Premium Lounge is only open to passengers travelling in business class or first class. If you have a OneWorld Sapphire or Emerald card travelling in economy class with Qatar Airways or a OneWorld carrier you will not have access to the Qatar Airways Premium Lounge. In this case you will be directed to the SATS Premier Lounge in terminal 1.

However entry is provided if you travel the same day with another OneWorld carrier from Singapore Changi, assuming it is in business class or first class.
