Back in June 2023, Priority Pass added several restaurant partners at Changi Airport, offering members the option of redeeming a set meal in lieu of a lounge visit. While airport restaurants aren’t exactly Michelin Star stuff, it’s probably better quality than the food you’ll find in a lounge.
But what if you have a Dragon Pass instead? The good news is that you’re not left out either, because Dragon Pass has its own line up of restaurants at Changi, plus a spa partnership too.
DragonPass restaurant and spa options at Changi Airport
DragonPass members can now redeem set meals or treatments at the following restaurants and spas at Changi Airport.

|Crystal Jade La Mian XLB (T1)|
Members will need to present a same-day boarding pass in order to redeem a visit. In other words, even though some outlets are located before immigration, you can’t just show up at the airport for a free meal!
Which credit cards offer a DragonPass membership?
As a reminder, here’s a list of the credit cards in Singapore which offer a DragonPass membership.
|💳 Cards with DragonPass Access|
|CIMB Visa Infinite||3||N/A|
|UOB VI Metal Card||Unlimited|
|HSBC TravelOne Card||4||N/A|
|*All free visits are tracked by membership year, except HSBC TravelOne Card which follows calendar year|
All free visits are tracked by membership year, with the exception of the HSBC TravelOne Card where visits are tracked by calendar year (the allowance renews on 1 January each year, which means you enjoy eight free visits in your first membership year).
How often can I redeem set meals?
DragonPass members can redeem a maximum of one set meal every five hours, with the exception of the HSBC TravelOne Card where the limit is one set meal every two hours (you won’t find this information published on the website, but I’ve confirmed it with the DragonPass press team).
Do note that the lounge/set meal entitlements are independent. For example:
- If you visit a lounge, there is no timeout period before you can redeem a set menu
- If you redeem a set menu, there is no timeout period before you can visit a lounge
Just be mindful you don’t mistake a restaurant for a lounge, or vice versa. For instance, TGM at Changi Airport Terminal 2 is sometimes mistaken for a lounge, when it’s in fact a restaurant. If you redeem a visit here, it’ll be 2-5 hours before you can redeem another set menu.
How does this compare to Priority Pass & LoungeKey?
The lounge membership business is effectively a duopoly between Collinson (which owns Priority Pass and LoungeKey) and DragonPass.
That said, their lists are not a complete overlap. When it comes to non-lounge facilities, there are some places you can access with Priority Pass & LoungeKey but not DragonPass, and vice versa.
|Venue||Priority Pass & |

|Terrace Chinese Kitchen||❌||✅|

|Kaveri Indian Veg.||✅||✅|
|The Green Market||❌||✅|
|T3||Kaveri Express Indian Veg.||✅||❌|
|T4||Crystal Jade Go||✅||✅|
DragonPass has the edge in terms of restaurants, with Terrace Chinese Kitchen, TGM & Root 98, and The Green Market, all of which are not available through Priority Pass and LoungeKey.
However, Priority Pass and LoungeKey do have a unique tie-up with Connect Coffee Workspace, a coworking space with comfortable seating and a blazing fast Wi-Fi network. Members receive a S$20 credit to spend on F&B.
DragonPass members can redeem visits for set menus at seven restaurants, or a spa treatment at TranSpa. It could be a nicer alternative to a lounge during peak periods, or if the thought of picking through warmed-over buffet food doesn’t appeal to you.
Just remember the limit of one redemption every five hours (two hours, if you’re a TravelOne Cardholder).
