Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be investing more than SGD50 million (US$36.8 million) in a revamp of its SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold Lounges at Changi Airport Terminal 3.

Renovations will start in August and are expected to be completed by mid-2021.

The redevelopment project will see an overall 30% increase in space and total passenger capacity for the Terminal 3 lounges. The new lounges will offer more generous open spaces, upgraded facilities and a wide array of food and beverage selections. SIA has engaged hospitality designers Hirsch Bedner Associates to inject a fresh look and feel to each lounge “that is modern yet homely, while inspiring a sense of timeless elegance,” said a release from the airline.

Suites and First Class passengers will have a new Private Room and First Class Lounge, with carefully designed luxurious and intimate seating spaces suitable for both work and rest. The First Class Lounge will continue to feature a flagship bar, and The Private Room, a full-service fine dining section with fresh and seasonally curated dining offerings, on top of the perennial local favorites.

The Business Class Lounge will be expanded and feature four distinct zones that cater to travelers with different needs. Customers with a short transit can have a light snack in a café setting, while those with more time to spend may explore a full selection of Asian and international cuisines in the dining hall, including live stations that will offer signature local delights.

A highlight of the new Business Class Lounge will be a full service bar that doubles up as a self-service breakfast station in the mornings. Productivity pods will also be available to catch up on work, while a rest area with lounge chairs will be provided for customers to catch sleep before their flight.

The KrisFlyer Gold Lounge will double in capacity and include dedicated working spaces, as well as larger al fresco seating and dining areas. The lounge will also be equipped with restrooms and showers.

The construction process will be carried out over four phases, during which the lounges will be progressively renovated in sections, starting with the Business Class Lounge, followed by the First Class Lounge and The Private Room, and finally the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge. Customers affected by renovation works will be invited to temporary lounges to ensure minimal disruption during this period.
