Singapore Airlines has unveiled its new SilverKris Lounge for premium passengers at Heathrow Airport following the airline’s recent move into Heathrow’s Terminal 2. Designed by architectural and interior design firm Ong&Ong, the new lounge embodies the airline’s “home away from home” concept, similar to those in Sydney and Hong Kong.
The space is separated into two dedicated areas for first- and business-class passengers, where a total of 208 seats are arranged for solo and group travelers alike. Guests have a wide range of seating options to choose from, including dining and living areas, specially designed productivity pods, and private cove areas exclusive to London. In the first-class area, passengers are proactively attended to with at-seat service, where they’ll receive a choice of welcome drinks paired with a hot towel, mirroring the on-board experience. A new gallery space accessible to all guests will feature curated art pieces and offer selected self-service drinks and snacks, as well as a travel concierge facility for those who need assistance with flights and seating. This space will also be the focus for a range of cultural events and showcases throughout the year, such as Christmas and the Lunar New Year.
Guests can satisfy their appetites with the airline’s “Taste of Singapore” cuisine, incorporating freshly cooked food using only fresh ingredients served alongside complementary wines, beers, spirits, and champagne. First-class passengers have the option of dining from a self-service buffet or an à la carte menu. Five different à la carte menus will be offered throughout the day, with at least two different menus available at any one time to ensure a wide selection of choices. Business-class passengers are offered a self-service buffet of freshly cooked Asian and Western dishes. The business-class lounge will also include a bar area complete with a professional bartender, which first-class guests also have access to should they wish.
