We arrived at Changi Airport terminal two at around 7:30AM.
We quickly found the SilkAir business class check-in counter, where there was no queue. Within a couple of minutes our boarding passes were printed and we were invited to use the Silver Kris Lounge.
At Changi Airport security is at the individual gates, so we only had to clear immigration before proceeding “airside.”
Airside duty free shopping
Once airside it was a short walk to the Silver Kris Lounge.
Walkway to Silver Kris Lounge
Before terminal three opened, this Silver Kris Lounge was their main one, and I was never terribly impressed by it. Fortunately they have renovated it since the one in terminal three opened, so it’s not half bad, though I still always go to the terminal three Silver Kris Lounge when possible.
Silver Kris Lounge entrance
The lounge is spacious though dark due to a lack of natural light, though it has plenty of seating. That being said it was a relative zoo given that mornings are pretty busy at Changi due to the flights arriving from Europe and elsewhere.
There’s also a small business center with desktop computers and workstations.
We had breakfast at the hotel so didn’t partake in the food spread, though there was a decent selection of muesli, fruit, croissants, muffins, pastries, cheese, finger sandwiches, and hot dishes.
Lounge dining area
The wifi in the lounge was on the slow side though not excruciatingly so.
At around 8:20AM we left the lounge for our departure gate, E7, which was about a 10-minute walk away.
Walkway to gate
Unfortunately the security checkpoint there was shared with a few gates, so the queue was fairly long. We still managed to clear right as boarding began at around 8:45AM.
