Lounge access when flying QF2


Eligible passengers can unwind at the stylish Qantas International London Lounge before QF2’s departure. This includes passengers flying in First Class and Business Class, as well as Qantas Gold, Platinum and Platinum One frequent flyers. Qantas Club members also make the cut, as do oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members.


Passengers disembark the plane during QF2’s two-house transit in Singapore. That’s enough time for a quick refresh at the Qantas International Business Lounge in Singapore. Happily, complimentary lounge passes can be used here, granting entry to Economy Class passengers and those without eligible status. Business Class passengers, Qantas Gold and oneworld Sapphire members can also relax here.

But if you’re flying First Class or hold Qantas Platinum or Platinum One status or oneworld Emerald, you can instead pay a visit to the lavish Qantas International First Lounge in Singapore.
