SATS Premier Lounge At Singapore Changi Terminal 3

In late December I was flying out of Singapore Changi Airport to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This allowed me to have a very small amount of time to check out the Terminal 3 contract lounge – the SATS Premier Lounge. SATS stands for Singapore Airport Terminal Services and it is the company responsible for much of the ground and catering services out of Singapore Changi airport. This will be a review of the lounge and its offerings.

Getting to the lounge was quite easy after getting through customs. In fact, it’s getting from the lounge to your gate that might take up much more time. After checking-in and getting your boarding pass, the lounge is nearby with a single escalator ride up. Reception is quick and easy with a simple scan of the boarding pass. If you are a Priority Pass holder, you have access to this lounge as well.

Interestingly, Priority Pass allows access to a surprisingly high number of lounges at this airport. Three lounges in T1, three in T2, four in T3! It seems like passengers have many options here. Even better, before going ‘airside’ it might be worth it to check out Changi’s newest attraction: The indoor rainforest known as The Jewel.

Which Airlines Are The World’s Safest

As we move into 2020, aviation safety is still a hot topic thanks to the continued coverage of the Boeing 737 MAX groundings. If you’re a nervous flyer then worry no more, a list of the top safety-rated airlines in the world has just been published.

Airlineratings.com has released its official list of the safest airlines and once again, Qantas has found its way to the top spot. The Australian flag carrier previously won the award in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 as well as being a joint winner in 2018.

In 2018, the top spot was shared by 20 airlines as the website just couldn’t choose its top airline. This year marks Qantas’ seventh year in the top spot so if you’re nervous about getting on a plane then a holiday to Australia may be on the cards this year.

Garuda Indonesia Files Another Change To Its London Route

One of the more iconic services in the aviation world is Garuda’s service to London. The Indonesian flag-carrier has changed up the route service an incredible number of times back in 2019. Now, with 2020 approaching, the airline is suspending the route entirely. At least, for now.

Routesonline reports that Garuda Indonesia is ending its current service to London on March 31, 2020. The airline did not announce any new or alternate services to London. This has come after a year of service changes. Currently, the airline operates Denpasar to Medan to London-Heathrow.

Currently, the route is scheduled as a thrice-weekly service onboard brand new Airbus A330-900neo aircraft. This is the latest generation variant of the popular Airbus A330. While Garuda flies both the A330 and A330neo, the airline placed the shiny new A330neo on this high-profile route.
