Priority Pass Members Lose Access to Plaza Premium Lounges

Plaza Premium is one of the largest independent airport lounge networks. It has 180 locations worldwide in 50 countries. Travelers can have access to a space with excellent services and facilities when departing, transiting and arriving at major international airports. There’s only one location in the United States, at Dallas Fort Worth airport, but they have plenty of options abroad.

Priority Pass members have access to Plaza Premium lounges. But the partnership is ending soon. As of July 1, 2021, Priority Pass will no longer have access to Plaza Premium lounges, as Executive Traveller reports.

“We have decided not to renew our contract with Priority Pass and LoungeKey, effective 1 July 2021 except for a small number of lounges which are still under review,” Plaza Premium PR & Corporate Communications manager Yuman Lau told Executive Traveller.

This is bad news for Priority Pass members, who would lose some value to their membership. But at least that’s not the case if you have Priority Pass through Amex Platinum cards. While Amex Platinum cardmembers get free Priority Pass membership, they also get access to the “The Global Lounge Collection“. Plaza Premium is included in that collection. Here are the details Platinum cardmembers for Plaza Premium access:

Card Members receive complimentary access to any global location of Plaza Premium Lounges. Card Member must present his or her valid Card, a boarding pass showing a confirmed reservation for same-day travel on any carrier and government-issued I.D. In some cases, Card Member must be 21 years of age to enter without a parent or guardian. Card Members may bring up to 1 companion into Plaza Premium Lounges as complimentary guests.

So the only change for Amex Platinum cardholders is that they will soon be limited to just one guest, instead of the current maximum of two guests.
