Complimentary Airport Lounge Access with Singapore Credit Cards (2019) - Which One Is the Best?

Approximately two years ago, I wrote an article about an exhaustive list of credit cards that you can get in Singapore which will get you into airport lounges for free. While the changes over the years have not been significant enough to warrant an update, I have decided to rewrite the article today so that it remains current - the table below shows all the credit cards in Singapore that you can apply for that will get you into airport lounges for free. The exact number of lounge depends on which lounge network the bank partners with but for the sake of simplicity, there are typically three lounge networks: Priority Pass (offering the most locations), DragonPass (offering a good mix of lounges and restaurants) and Plaza Premium Lounge (which has the least number of locations but almost all of them are high-quality lounges). There are overlaps (e.g. Plaza Premium Lounges are typically under Priority Pass) so it may get a little confusing so I highly recommend for you to look up individual lounge networks to understand it better.

I have only included credit cards that do not require a minimum spend in this article - there are some credit cards in Singapore that will only allow you to access the lounge if you have spent a fixed amount in the months leading up to the month of travel. Such cards are overly complicated and since there are no lack credit cards with simple access rules here in Singapore, I have excluded cards with minimum spend requirement in the table below.
