Cathay Pacific intends to unlock the doors to its Singapore Changi T4 lounge in February as the airline steadily rebuilds its lounge network.
A spokesperson for Cathay Pacific has confirmed to Executive Traveller “we are targeting to re-open our Cathay Pacific lounge in Singapore by the end of February.”
That means business class passengers and lounge-worthy Cathay Silver, Gold and Diamond members – and their Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald equivalents – will no longer be sent to Terminal 4’s sub-par Blossom Lounge.
Instead, they’ll once again be able to settle in this boutique lounge’s comfortable dining room and enjoy the delights of Cathay’s signature Noodle Bar – which previously offered Hong Kong dan dan noodles and Singaporean laksa among its pre-flight tempters – along with a selection of dishes from the buffet.
The rest of the lounge is given over to a wide range of seating, from various armchairs and sofas to Cathay’s bespoke work-friendly Solo chairs.
These offer a little more privacy while also putting AC and USB ports within reach, along with a small table plus a reading light and coat- or handbag-hanger.
About all that Cathay’s Changi T4 lounge lacks are shower suites, which would no doubt be welcome at the end of a steamy Singapore day.
Like its Hong Kong siblings The Pier plus other lounges at Tokyo Haneda, Taiwan, Bangkok, Manila, London Heathrow and Vancouver, Cathay’s Singapore lounge is based on the same elegant template created by English designer Ilse Crawford and her StudioIlse team.
This means a strongly ‘residential’ vibe, albeit with the most upmarket materials such as walnut and cherrywood, limestone, bronze and brass which all bring warmth, class and a sense of calmness to the space.
As previously reported, Cathay Pacific has now fully reopened The Wing First and The Pier Business lounges at Hong Kong, and Executive Traveller understands that more lounges will shortly follow.
