Priority Pass has announced it has added a total of 183 airport lounges and experiences to its global network in 2021, said a report in Business Traveller. The latest additions mean that Priority Pass has at least one experience covering 95 per cent of all international flights from the top 100 airports, with new additions in airports worldwide, including the US, Russia and China.
The brand has also focused on making more premium experiences accessible for its Members, by adding further dining, sleep and spa offerings to its network as well as recently announcing a partnership with CarTrawler.
Growing The Premium Lounges Network
As part of its dedication to growing its premium lounge network, Priority Pass added 134 new premium lounges in 2021, each designed to be a luxurious oasis for travelers pre-flight. As part of this, through its sister company, Airport Dimensions, Priority Pass Members were also given access to a new lounge concept in partnership with VIP Ambaar Lounge brand. The exciting, new, premium ‘Ambaar Club’ launched at Viracopos International Airport and has since been rolled out to two further airports in Brazil this year with more to come.
Separately, as previously announced in June 2021, a relationship with JP Morgan Chase will give Priority Pass Members access to lounges within the brand new, premium airport lounge ‘Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club’. Three lounges are already in development at Hong Kong International, Boston Logan and New York La Guardia airports.
Adding New Airport Experiences
As part of its commitment to expanding the range of options available for Members beyond airport lounges, Priority Pass introduced 49 new experiences in 2021. These include: Sleeping Pods at airports including Moscow Sheremetyevo, New York La Guardia and Bahrain International; nine new spas, featured in destinations such as Istanbul, Lagos and Dallas; and even a brand new gaming experience at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Further premium dining experiences were added, where guests can dine on delicious local cuisines and, in some cases, enjoy the scenery with expansive window views.
Be Relax also joined the Priority Pass network, offering Members the opportunity for a relaxing spa experience before or after their flight. With numerous locations across the US and around the world, Be Relax offers a large range of wellness services, including chair massages, loungers, and aromatherapy.
Priority Pass Members can visit Be Relax locations at San Diego International Airport, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, Dallas International Airport, and New York Airport, with more locations coming soon to the network.
