Singapore Airlines opens luxury lounge at Incheon

Singapore Airlines (SIA) said Wednesday that it opened a luxury lounge at Incheon International Airport to provide upgraded services for its high-paying customers.

The lounge, named SilverKris, will offer facilities such as wireless Internet access, a business center with desktop computers, shower rooms and restrooms, televisions, as well as a selection of warm food and light snacks.

“The SilverKris Lounge is a key element in SIA’s premium service offering, which begins on the ground and continues in the air. The new lounge, together with our four daily Seoul flights, demonstrates our commitment to the important South Korean market,” said Sia Nam Kung, the general manager of the carrier’s Korean office.

Incheon Airport’s SilverKris Lounge has a seating capacity of 96 located at Level 4 of the Concourse Terminal building. It is open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., as well as between 1 p.m. and 11:50 p.m., according to the airlines.  

In August, SIA announced an investment of $20 million in SilverKris lounges over five years to enhance the travel experience of its customers. At the same time, the company appointed renowned architectural and interior design firm ONG&ONG to develop a new design concept to be applied to all its airport lounges worldwide. The new design concept is expected to be rolled out progressively at SilverKris Lounges beginning from the middle of this year.

Including a recently opened lounge at Delhi Airport in India, Singapore Airlines now has 15 SilverKris Lounges at airports around the world.
