Singapore Airlines Plans $20 Million Revamp of Airport Lounges
Singapore Airlines will invest $20 million and has appointed architectural and interior design firm ONG&ONG to develop a new design concept for all of its SilverKris airport lounges worldwide. The SilverKris Lounge at Sydney Airport will be the first to receive the makeover and it will take five years for all the company’s lounges to be updated.
The airline has 15 SilverKris Lounges in airports around the world, including new locations in the Delhi and Seoul airports. The Dehli lounge’s official opening is next month, and the Seoul lounge at Incheon International Airport will open by the end of the year. The SilverKris Lounge at Melbourne Airport is currently undergoing renovations that will be completed in November. The work includes more seating and a new dining area.
While the new design concept is being introduced, the airline will continue updating existing lounges. Singapore Airlines customers will be involved in the design process including the conceptualization, testing, and prototype evaluation stages.
“The next generation of SilverKris Lounges will meet the changing needs and expectations of both business and leisure travelers an better integrate the ground and air travel experience,” said Tan Pee Teck, senior vice president of product and services at Singapore Airlines.
