Singapore Changi Airport has numerous lounges available for use for passengers within the transit area. You don’t have to be flying in a premium cabin to use some of these lounges. In fact, some credit cards provide cardholders with access to airport lounges under some programmes through partnerships with lounge operators. One such programme is Priority Pass, which manages many lounges worldwide, a few of which Changi is proud to be a host of.
In this post, I will highlight some of these lounges which can be found in Terminal 3.
SATS Premier Lounge
This lounge may seem ordinary, but most passengers stop by here for a hearty bowl of Singapore Laksa. There is also ample seating, but during peak periods, this lounge can get really crowded.
The seating area away from the food and beverage section is a little quieter, and there are numerous charging ports available too. So do pick a seat here if you’re intending to stay for long.
This lounge is comparatively quieter, but with a slightly less attractive food and beverage selection.
However, if all you need is some peace and quiet to do some reading or work, you’ll be pleased to find ample seating with multiple power points available to keep your devices fully charged while waiting for your flight.
Ambassador Transit Lounge
Now this has got to be my least favourite among the three lounges being reviewed here. All you’ll find are rows and rows of chairs for passengers to lounge in.
The food and beverage selection is also basic at best. This is definitely not the lounge you’d want to be in when it gets crowded too.
Priority Pass members can have access to these lounges at Singapore Changi Terminal 3. But bear in mind that depending on the crowd situation at these participating lounges, the staff may temporarily turn away Priority Pass members until the crowd thins out a little. Personally, this has never happened to me, but at least you’ll have other alternatives available if and when this happens.
