Singapore Airlines will keep its Sydney SilverKris business class and first class lounges open until late evenings from May 1, in keeping with the start of the new SQ288 overnight flight to Singapore via Canberra.
That flight leaves Sydney at 9.20pm, so the airline's lounge will push back its closing time from a standard 6.30pm (outside of summertime) to 9pm to accommodate passengers heading out on the 10-hour trip.
This will also see the lounge accessible to business class passengers and top-tier frequent flyers on any other Star Alliance airlines with late-night departures from Sydney – such as ANA's NH880 flight to Tokyo, which departs at 8.55pm – as an alternative to the Air New Zealand lounge.
The Singapore Airlines lounge generally offers a wider range of food than the neighbouring AirNZ lounge, although in our experience the WiFi is appallingly slow.
