Design of Qantas' New First Class Lounge in Singapore Changi Airport is Unveiled

Last year, Qantas announced that it will be opening a second lounge in Singapore Changi Airport for First Class passengers - the brand new lounge (set to open at the end of 2019) will feature a luxurious setting for 240 customers and it will come complete with shower facilities, a la carte dining options with an open kitchen, a cocktail bar as well as plenty of device charging stations. Today, Qantas has finally unveiled the visual concept of the upcoming First Class Lounge and it has been designed by David Caon in collaboration with Akin Atelier.

Utilising virtual reality (VR) in the development on the new First Class Lounge, Qantas will be able to better preview and fine tune lounges - a similar approach is also being utilised for the airline's upgrade of its A380 cabins. Unveiling detail of the interiors today, designer David Caon said a neutral colour palette, luxurious materials and leafy green highlights will make customers feel relaxed as soon as they enter the lounge. The existing Business Lounge in Terminal 1 of Singapore Changi Airport will also be expanded and it is due to open mid-year. The overall lounge capacity in Singapore will increase by 60 percent, and combined, the First and Business Lounges will offer seating for more than 800 customers.
