British Airways has opened a new lounge at Changi Airport that includes the airline’s first ever Concorde Bar, a tasteful and secluded area exclusive to First Class customers featuring digital panoramic views of the Singapore skyline.
The main lounge offers an upgraded space to work, relax or dine and is decorated with artwork from established Singaporean and British artists, including Simon Wee and Dr Brendan Neiland.
Formula 1 superstar Jenson Button was one of the first customers to enjoy the airline’s new state-of-the-art facility as he travelled through Changi Airport. Speaking to High Life Magazine, Jenson Button said, “I travel a lot with work so it makes a big difference to have somewhere you can sit and relax when you’re waiting for a flight. A British Airways lounge is always a treat as it’s a little bit of familiarity, a sort of home away from home and the new lounge in Singapore is fantastic.”
Robert Williams, British Airways’ head of Asia Pacific sales, said, “Our new lounge caters to customers – like Jenson – who live life in the fast lane. It is specially-designed to be an oasis of calm and tasteful luxury, enabling travellers to work or unwind in a relaxing environment.”
Access to the new lounge is limited to British Airways First and Club World business class customers, British Airways Executive Gold and Silver members, and oneworld frequent flyers with Emerald and Sapphire status. The Concorde Bar is exclusively for British Airways’ First customers and eligible guests.
