Singapore Airlines reopens Bangkok SilverKris Lounge

Last Updated:

Singapore Airlines has reopened its SilverKris Lounge at Bangkok airport, one of the prettiest outstation lounges in the network.

Singapore Airlines has reopened its SilverKris Lounge at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, the seventh overseas lounge to resume operations post-COVID, and a very welcome development for Star Alliance passengers. 

The Bangkok SilverKris Lounge first opened in May 2017, as part of the “home away from home” design concept by ONG&ONG that was rolled out to most of Singapore Airlines’ overseas network. 

I visited in October that year, and was very impressed indeed.

Operating Hours & Location

The SilverKris Lounge at Bangkok Airport is located at Level 3, Concourse D, opposite Gate D7. Operating hours are from 0630 to 2300 hours daily, which means it will serve passengers on all five daily Singapore Airlines flights:

  • SQ705 (departs 0940)
  • SQ707 (departs 1215)
  • SQ709 (departs 1530)
  • SQ711 (departs 1830)
  • SQ713 (departs 2010)

Alternative facilities for Star Alliance passengers include those by Thai Airways (Concourse D, opposite Gate D4/ Concourse E, near Gate E1) or Turkish Airlines (Concourse D, near Gate D8). As a fall back option, I’d visit the Royal Orchid Prestige Lounge at Concourse D. It’s a beautiful new space with upgraded F&B options, a vast improvement from THAI’s old lounges.

In terms of facilities, guests can expect a full buffet area with a generous spread (there was even Haagen-Dazs ice cream pre-COVID!) and a tended bar. There’s no champagne, but you can approach the affable bartenders and ask them to whip up a cocktail for you.

Five productivity pods provide a semi-private place to catch up with work, equipped with power outlets and USB ports.

While the lounge has its own toilets, there are no showers. If that’s important, you’ll need to visit one of the Priority Pass facilities. 

Which SilverKris Lounges are currently open?

SilverKris Lounge Sydney

Prior to the pandemic, Singapore Airlines had 13 overseas SilverKris Lounges. Adelaide, Kuala Lumpur and New Delhi have been permanently shuttered, and of the remainder, the following have already reopened: 

The following lounges are still closed:

  • Hong Kong
  • Seoul
  • Taipei

Singapore Airlines has not provided any timeline for their reopening, but Seoul looks the most likely candidate, given Hong Kong and Taiwan’s continued closure. SIA currently operates two daily services from Incheon Airport, which will increase to three daily from November onwards.

At present, eligible passengers are directed to the Asiana Lounge, which didn’t have any hot food when I visited in November last year. The SilverKris Lounge looks much more promising!

Conclusion

Singapore Airlines and Star Alliance passengers flying out of Bangkok now have another lounge option to look forward to, as the SilverKris Lounge reopens its doors. 

I can safely say this is one of my favourite outstation lounges, given its gorgeous décor and great buffet spread. If you’re passing through BKK, do let us know how the experience has changed!
