SATS Premier Lounge, Singapore Changi Terminal 2

It has been a while since I last flew out of Changi Airport Terminal 2. As I was going up the escalator that leads to the airline lounges, I felt a sense of nostalgia coming back to a place where it was just like yesterday. Soon, a stream of memories start appearing before my eyes, I was lucky enough to have been a guest of the Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge for several years, which is now defunct. In fact, I could still remember my first visit to this lounge when I was only 9 years old!

Malaysia Airlines has shut most of its’ international lounges, and Singapore wasn’t spared…

They have replaced the signature wooden door with this boring aluminium door whilst awaiting the next airline to move in. I wonder who that might be, or when. Considering the fact that MAS have given up on this space for more than a year already (and it is STILL empty), it does make me curious how much rent does CAG (Changi Airport Group) demands for that space and which airlines is ‘capable’ of taking it up.

To sidetrack a little, Qantas and Emirates each has an impressive lounge in Terminal 1. British Airways has one of their own too. Hence, oneworld elite members are spoilt for choices there. 

Singapore airlines operate out of Terminal 2 and 3. You can find Silverkris and Krisflyer Gold lounge in both terminals. All other carriers use the SATS Premier lounge. Malaysia airlines is the only oneworld carrier that flies out of Terminal 2. In my opinion Korean air, Air India and Eithad are the few that might have enough ‘muscle’ to maintain a lounge there. Yet, nobody seems to be interested.

Anyway, Malaysia Airlines now invite their passengers to the SATS Premier Lounge, located right opposite.

I have never been a big fan of contracted lounges which serves a million other airlines, but I went into this one with an open mind.

There are a few of these very interesting TV-cubicles, not very comfy though!

 Comfortable lounge chairs and most importantly, power points!

Small but functional dining area

Showers are always very important for me and whilst they were clean, they are definitely not up to my standards. I didn’t try them out so I cannot comment on the water pressure or quality of toiletries but these pictures might give you an idea.

There was a quiet corner with two massage chairs and as much as I was hoping to get a go at it, they were both hogged by a couple. 

I left the lounge after only 10 minutes which was just enough time for a comfort break, a glass of Coke, and some photos!
