The airline is set to open its new, dedicated lounge at Terminal 1 in Changi Airport, Singapore this week.

The stylish lounge is the first location to offer the airline’s new Concorde Bar, a private area exclusive to First customers. The Concorde Bar (pictured) features an opulent interior with black Nero marble surfaces, European oak flooring and bespoke furnishings.

Customers will also enjoy digital panoramic views of the Singapore skyline reflecting the time of the day outside, similar to a rotating restaurant. Customers travelling First will be provided with an exclusive passcode to access the area which they will be given when they first enter the lounge.

The main lounge includes artwork from established Singapore and British artists, including Simon Wee and Dr Brendan Neiland. All pieces on display have been curated and selected based on their links to Singapore.

The main lounge seats 185 customers, the Concorde Bar 41. Some 88 per cent of the seats are served by access to power for electronic devices as well as USB ports, and there is high-speed WiFi throughout.

Robert Williams, Head of Asia Pacific Sales, said, “Our new lounge is a toast to the heritage and glamour of flying. I am confident that our customers, whether they are travelling on business or going on holiday, will enjoy the privacy, state-of-the-art facilities, and incredible artwork on offer.”

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 their eligible guests.

The new lounge comes ahead of moving the airline’s A380 service to Singapore to daily frequency later this year.
