The brand new British Airways lounge in Singapore has now opened following several months of refurbishment, during which time British Airways customers have been using the Qantas lounge.
The new lounge is a brand new lounge featuring the very latest Galleries design and an additional 42% capacity due to A380 services which increase to daily from December.
Highlights include stunning feature lighting, a dramatic feature wall and high communal dining tables. All art on display in the lounge has been chosen due its link to Singapore and includes mix of upcoming and established British and Singaporean artists.
The new lounge also features a world first – the exclusive Concorde Bar Singapore where First customers can dine, relax and work. The Concorde Bar Singapore is the first Concorde Bar to open anywhere in the world. An exclusive haven for First customers and their eligible guests only, the design is strikingly different in style from the main Galleries lounge with black timber, Nero marble and champagne metal finishes.
The Concorde Bar offers a variety of seating options including communal bar seating, more private sofa corners and dining booths. Customers can enjoy digital panoramic views of the Singapore skyline which will enable them to connect to the time of day outside when travelling through time zones.
Other Concorde Bar openings are planned globally, with the next opening to take place in Dubai.26th August 2015 at 10:39 #537916
Hi Carajillo2Sugar – has the Dubai one been confimed? Do you happen to know if it’s T1 or new Concourse D? I’ll follow up this end.

Presumably the new Concorde Bar concept will be the new F Lounge model? Anyone travelling F can use it, everyone else uses the regular lounge?26th August 2015 at 11:08 #537918
BTMEEditor – My current info suggests that, yes, the Dubai lounge is confirmed but no opening date available as yet and no info on it’s precise location.
SimonS1 – that would seem to be the way BA are going with this concept – exclusivity for the top-dogs and kept separate from those lower down the food-chain.
There will be some shenannigans from the DYKWIA brigade….27th August 2015 at 11:48 #537919
I believe the new Dubai lounge will be in concourse D, this was from the BA staff in Dubai a couple of months back, seems Concourse D has had some issues in the trials they were conducting, anyone know any more on this?27th August 2015 at 12:30 #537920
Concourse D was due to open in April, then pushed back to July, then September, and now they are saying December.
Concorde Bar is only for use by F pax, and access is via a keypad for which F pax are given a code, as it sits inside the main lounge.
