Priority Pass Airport Lounge Access Guide

priority-pass-card-article2

Priority Pass is an independent airport lounge access program. A membership provides you with access to their network of over 700 lounges worldwide. These lounges are managed by a variety of airlines and companies, meaning that there is significant variation among them – but great international coverage.

Importantly, there are no restrictions based on the airline you fly or the class of ticket you purchased. Your membership is all you need to enter!

Priority Pass: lounge locations

Priority Pass covered most of the major transit hubs such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Seoul, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, Helsinki and Kuala Lumpur.

In Singapore, Priority Pass access even outshines what you’ll get as a Velocity Gold or Platinum member. When flying with Singapore Airlines, these elite travellers can only access SQ’s two KrisFlyer Gold lounges, which come without showers, or even toilets.

On the other hand, Priority Pass members have a choice of eleven lounges across Terminals 1, 2 and 3 at Changi – ten of which have in-lounge shower facilities.

Further abroad, you’ll also find lounges in business destinations such as Shanghai, Tokyo (Narita), London (Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Southend and Luton), New York (JFK, La Guardia and Newark), Los Angeles, Helsinki, Frankfurt, Zurich, Paris, Rome, Santiago, Vancouver, Toronto and more.
