British Airways officially opened the new British Airways Singapore lounge at Changi Airport Terminal 1. Located next to the SATS Premier Lounge and close to the Thai Airways lounge and Qantas Singapore Lounge, the new lounge is also the airline’s first lounge to offer the Concorde Bar to its FIRST customers outside its home country UK.

The grand opening was held at 11.30am this morning and was attended by trade partners and the media as they were given a tour of the lounge.

The lounge opens at 3pm and closes after the last British Airways departure of the day. British Airways operates twice daily flights. Customers flying on British Airways FIRST and Club World Business Class as well as British Airways Executive Gold and Silver members and oneworld Emerald and Sapphire frequent flyers can access the lounge.

Imagine being in the movie Mission Impossible. All the gadgets and pin numbers and self destructions. Not that anything will self destruct here. Access into the Concorde Bar is so exclusive you need a pin number to enter.

And you have to be flying in First class to enjoy this special privilege. The Concorde Bar is a private recluse. The lighting in here is a relaxing dim, great when preparing for a red eye flight.

British Airways A380 can accommodate 14 First class customers in the open suites on the lower deck.

What I like about this lounge is the space. It does not get too crammed and you decide what kind of seating fits you. Hopefully it doesn’t get too crowded when a couple of oneworld flights depart from Changi Airport Terminal 1 with an influx of premium passengers and higher tiered oneworld members.

A selection of hot food and salads are available at the lounge. Enjoy a cup of machine brewed coffee or teas, soft drinks or beer. What would have been great would be food prepared a la minute. The Qantas Singapore lounge has chefs on hand to prepare freshly prepared hot meal when you request for one.

    I am travelling to and from Singapore, with my wife, World Traveller Plus Booking Reference ****** starting 6th. February for a cruise. On 23rd February the cruise ship docks in the early morning and our flight BA0012 does not leave until 23.20 . I have Avois points.

    It would be very helpful if we use the BA Lounge. How do we do this?

    • We are not sure if you can redeem Avios points for lounge access. You’ll need to contact your airline frequent flyer customer service to check with them.
