Indeed, there is one. Qatar is one of the airlines with a priority security line in Singapore (thank goodness!)

Hi,

Jumping in on this thread. Is there a QR transfer desk at SIN T1? Asking as I’m trying to figure out which flight to book to arrive in SIN for the 2am flight to DOH. I will have checked luggage with a full service airline (SQ) from the previous flight and ideally I don’t want to pass through immigration just to pick up luggage and check in again so wanted to make sure I could get this transferred onto QR without having to go through immigration. If I do have to do the whole immigration thing I’ll have to book an earlier flight. Flying J if it makes any difference, and visa for Singapore isn’t an issue for me. I just don’t want the hassle

Thanks in advance

There are no priority check-in counters at this time, only for them to open at T-3 hours. The queue was around 1 hour long and I ended up sitting by the Coffee Bean Stall waiting for an hour just for the Business class counter to open because there was no point in waiting. The J counters ended up opening T-3hours 15 minutes.

Another option after 17 April is to use the early check in at Changi Jewel.

Short question, if the flight is delayed, will check in also be delayed?

Hi there,

hope this answer isn't too late! Yes, QR should have a transit desk at Terminal 1. You should proceed straight to the "transit lounge" area where all the transit desks are. They should be able to move your luggage for you to the next flight, though I would personally leave around 2-3 hours between your flights just in case things don't turn up well.

Many thanks. I booked a 6 hour connection in just in case, but even better if I don't have to go landside. More time to chill out in the lounge and maybe even go for a swim.

Looking forward to going back through Singapore, and especially to trying out the Q suites

No worries. The QF Lounge is particularly nice when it is not crowded, and the BA lounge isn't very shabby at all. Though since you're on the 2am departure, you're probably best going to the OW lounges first as they close at around 11 pm, in line with the last BA/QF departures. Technically you should be able to use one of the lounges QR has a contract with (not sure which one), though as far as I know, the contract lounges are pretty awful.
