Singapore Airlines will finally upgrade its underwhelming KrisFlyer Gold Lounge at Singapore’s Changi Airport from next month.

Singapore Airlines is also renovating its Business Class Lounge, First Class Lounge and The Private Room, in that order, followed finally by the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge. Work will begin next month and will be completed by mid-2021. The entire project is expected to cost over $50 million.

KrisFlyer Gold Lounge Upgrade

Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer Gold Lounge at Singapore Airport is dedicated to Velocity Gold & Platinum members, as well as Star Alliance Gold frequent flyers that are flying in Economy with Singapore Airlines. Although Singapore Airlines has a great in-flight product and very good lounges for its Business and First Class passengers, the poor quality of this lounge has long been a weak point for the airline.

The current space is overcrowded and does not even contain toilets or showers. Visitors must currently exit the lounge to use the public airport toilets across the hallway. It’s a very underwhelming transit experience for Singapore Airlines passengers, so it’s great to see this lounge getting an upgrade – even if it won’t be finished for another two years.

The new KrisFlyer Gold Lounge will double in size, and feature toilets, showers and work stations.

While the upgrades are taking place, Singapore Airlines is opening an alternative Gold lounge further down the hallway from the existing space. The alternative lounge will be open from 31 July 2019.

Meanwhile, the upgraded SilverKris Business Lounge will feature a full-service bar and “productivity pods”, as well as a rest area with chaise lounges.

There will likely be some disruption while construction work is ongoing. All customers affected by renovation works will be re-accommodated in temporary lounges to minimise the disruption.

Meanwhile, construction has already started on the new Qantas First Lounge in Singapore. This lounge is expected to open at the end of this year.
