Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

Fre­quent fliers un­der­stand the im­por­tance of a good rest­ing area and Emi­rates de­cided to give their pre­mium cus­tomers an en­hanced travel ex­pe­ri­ence. The newly ren­o­vated First and Busi­ness class lounge in Changi Air­port, Sin­ga­pore took ap­prox­i­mately five months to com­plete, and serves as part of the air­line’s con­tin­u­ous in­vest­ment in up­grad­ing its prod­ucts.

Of­fi­cially opened on 28 April 2017, the lounge is ideally lo­cated in the de­par­ture area above Board­ing Gate C1 – where a clus­ter of lounges is lo­cated in. All Emi­rates First and Busi­ness Class trav­ellers, as well as Sky­wards Plat­inum and Gold pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling in Econ­omy Class get to ac­cess the new fa­cil­ity. 222 peo­ple can en­joy the lounge com­fort­ably.

The new lounge in­cludes com­pli­men­tary chauf­feur ser­vice in Sin­ga­pore, ded­i­cated check-in coun­ters and Emi­rates’ award win­ning in­flight ser­vices – pro­vid­ing pre­mium con­sumers a com­fort­able and seam­less jour­ney from start to des­ti­na­tion. De­sign wise, users can ex­pect to find Ital­ian mar­ble floors, posh leather arm­chairs and wal­nut wood fin­ished in the newly re­fur­bished area to cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary yet homely space to un­wind in.

Other no­table fa­cil­i­ties in­clude LED tele­vi­sions, shower fa­cil­i­ties, a busi­ness cen­tre, be­spoke art­work and a prayer room – newly added for the Sin­ga­pore lounge. Guests may also tuck into an ex­ten­sive menu of com­pli­men­tary gourmet food, served buf­fet style, and bev­er­age ser­vices that in­clude fine pre­mium cham­pagne, wines and spir­its at the lounge’s ded­i­cated din­ing area.

Apart from Sin­ga­pore and the seven lounges in its main hub Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port, there are some other ded­i­cated lounges found in Auck­land, Bangkok, Beijing, Birm­ing­ham, Bos­ton, Bris­bane, Cape Town, Colombo, Delhi, Dus­sel­dorf, Frank­furt, Glas­glow, Ham­burg, Hong Kong, Is­tan­bul, Jo­han­nes­burg, Kuala Lumpur, Lon­don Gatwick, Lon­don Heathrow, Los An­ge­les, Manch­ester, Mel­bourne, Mi­lan, Mu­nich, Narita, New York JFK, Paris Charles de Gaulee, Perth, Rome, San Fran­cisco, Shang­hai, Syd­ney and Zurich. All of which amount to ap­prox­i­mately US$360mil­lion of in­vest­ment.
