Qantas to launch First Lounge development project at Singapore Changi Airport

    Qantas announced (25-Oct-2018) plans to launch a “multi million dollar” lounge expansion project at Singapore Changi Airport. The scope of the project includes expansion of its existing Business lounge, opened in 2013, to more than 800 seats, and development of a new First Lounge, offering seating for 240, with enhanced restaurant and menu options. The new First Lounge is expected to begin construction in Apr-2019, with the combined projects increasing total lounge seating capacity by 60%. Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the project reflects the need to cater for “strong demand for travel in premium cabins”, with the return of A380 service to Singapore.
