Plaza Premium Lounges return to Priority Pass network


Priority Pass and LoungeKey members will once again be able to access Plaza Premium Lounges globally, following a hiatus of almost two years.

Collinson, which operates Priority Pass and LoungeKey, has reached a new global agreement with Plaza Premium Group, allowing members to access 63 lounges within Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

The renewed relationship will see the lounges added into the programme in two phases, with 39 available from today (June 6) and the remaining 24 joining from June 20. Collinson notes that the listing of such lounges may take up to 24 hours to appear on the Priority Pass app or website.

A total of 21 lounges will be added across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with 15 of these available from today, and the remaining six joining on June 20. The Plaza Premium Lounges added to the network include those at London Gatwick and Dubai International.

In North America, the renewed relationship will see members gain access to 15 lounges today across the US and Canada. These include facilities at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International, Vancouver International, and Orlando FL International airports.

For the Asia Pacific region, 27 additional lounges will be added across destinations including Cambodia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and the Philippines, with nine lounges available today.

The renewed agreement includes access to lounges at Phnom Penh International and Siem Reap International airports in Cambodia, as well as Macau International airport, Mactan-Cebu International in the Philippines, and Qingdao airport. The remaining 18 lounges will be available from June 20.

Note that members of The Club by Business Traveller can get up to 20 per cent off Priority Pass annual membership fees – for more information and to join today.

David Evans, Joint CEO at Collinson, commented:

“We are dedicated to creating the very best propositions for our clients and partners whilst delivering the best possible travel experience for our global members.

“The rekindling of a long-standing relationship reminds us that the travel industry is a rich ecosystem that delivers the best experience for consumers when the various players work together as one. With demand for premium travel stronger than ever we are significantly increasing our network of lounges and experiences in key travel hubs across the world.”

Bora Isbulan, deputy-CEO at Plaza Premium Group, added:

“At PPG, our mission is to make travel better and we design our airport hospitality services to exceed the travellers’ needs. After years of suppressed travel, we observe a greater demand for better airport experiences, hence in addition to expanding our portfolio of services in the airport lounge, hotel, meet and greet, passenger service and F&B category, our renewed relationship with Collinson will allow us to provide unique experiences that elevate the journeys for their members.”
