Singapore Airport is home to many fantastic airline lounges, including numerous top-notch oneworld airline lounges. Qantas, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Malaysia Airlines and Japan Airlines all have their own lounges. Plus, Qantas frequent flyers have access to the Emirates lounge. So, which is the best?
Although our members’ views are mixed, the Qantas, British Airways and Emirates lounges are all popular choices. The Qantas Singapore lounge was recently refurbished and is now regarded as one of Qantas’ best flagship lounges. Some members even rate it alongside the popular Sydney and Melbourne First class lounges. The Qantas Singapore lounge is modern, with good service and excellent food options. It’s a reasonably large lounge, however it can become crowded in the evening prior to the bank of Qantas flight departures. And unlike most lounges, the facility is shared by Gold and Platinum flyers.
It’s a very good lounge. Far better than the LAX F lounge and probably better than SYD and MEL F lounges too. Food is very good and many healthy selections on the buffet area.
Although it is not officially a oneworld lounge, the Emirates lounge is another standout option. The quality of the food and service is said to be excellent. Qantas flyers can access the lounge prior to any Qantas or Emirates flight, though Qantas Club members will only have access if their flight is booked with a “QF” flight number.
I have always gone to the Emirates lounge when I can. Better food and drink, more personal service and quieter.
The final pick amongst our members is the brand new British Airways Singapore lounge. This lounge only opened last week, but it appears to be a good quality lounge not unlike most other British Airways locations. Time will tell whether this lounge is as good as the Qantas or Emirates offerings, however initial reports suggest that construction in the lounge is not yet completed.
I was in SIN 2 days ago and the BA lounge is still a mess, with drilling/tradesmen, so not 100% on the opening date.
It’s very difficult to choose a standout winner between these three lounges, but most agree that all are superior to the Malaysia Airlines and Cathay Pacific lounges, which are operated by third party contractors.
