My first flight out of this terminal! Yays!
Funnily enough, I’ve only visited T4 during their preview but never came here to actually take a flight due to the limited airlines using this facility. In fact, it only dawned on me that I’m actually going to be able to try Blossom after I’ve booked my flight. So my starts were all aligned.
I was excited to be able to try the only Priority Pass lounge as I knew trying the Cathy Pacific Lounge was a far thingy away. At least I can stare at it across the aisle right?
My flight was 0745 and with the help of the OBCB Voyage limo service, I was there early at 0530. Talk about efficiency. I also had to walk through the seemingly hilarious body scanner at the security screening where you had to lift your hands above your head, pause in position, and wait. Then the officer will wave you over which means you are cleared. Hah.
Location – Terminal 4, Singapore Changi Airport, Level 2M, Departure Transit.
Operating Hours – 24-hours
This is a space spanning 1,100SqM and can accommodate 280 seated passengers at any one time. That’s a huge quota given the number of airlines which uses this facility.
After passing through a bored lounge dragon who clearly wasn’t expecting anyone at 6am on a weekday morning, I walked into the relatively empty space which supposedly contains 3 distinct areas – Bar, Quiet Area, and Restaurant.
Look at all that space!
I also saw quiet booths so quiet that a staff was spotted sleeping in them:
There was also a separate area across the “bridge”:
I only saw more people streaming in around 6:30am and even then, this was still the most empty PP lounge I’ve ever been to.
In terms of food, they had a decent breakfast spread on offer:
As a node to all other reviews, the laksa is really quite nice too. So do try it for sure if you are passing through.
Toilets are decently clean too!
I would take this over SKL in T3 in a heartbeat. Even with no champagne, this offers the peace and quiet I’d gladly take before any flight.
Too bad this is so hard to get to given the only way to switch between the other 3 terminals is a shuttle bus.
Turns out, this was a much needed respite from my horrible KLIA2 customs jam which lasted 2 hours. Sheesh.
