Combined access to airline lounges

I recently read in the paper or heard discussion on the radio of a new system of combined access to airline / airport travel lounges ... and I now cannot find any further information on a quick internet search.

As i understood it, you paid an annual subscription to a third party provider, who had made an arrangement with as many airlines - executive lounge providers ... and with the payment of a small additional casual use fee ... you would have access to most airline lounges without being tied to any particular airline.

Does anyone have further details of this scheme / product ... or could you pls point me in the right direction to get further info ? I am based in Sydney and it was likely that I read about it in the SMH or heard about it on the ABC.

thanks

Welcome to AFF Ken :)


Sounds like Priority Pass (I dont have a link but google should bring up plenty of info). It isnt new and relatively expensive (I think). But good if have no airline status, or based in US (where status on US-based Frequent Flyer Programs isnt good enough to get in the lounge). It isn't new. One thing to watch is that some airports have multiple terminals. Having a lounge accessible by Priority Pass is no good if that lounge is in a different terminal to which you cannot get since not flying from that terminal.

I think Diners Club may also have a similar arrangement (less lounges offered).

Otherwise the fallback is that many lounges can be entered upon payment of an entry fee (varies but in US US$50 is typical). Quite expensive if you use lounges a lot, but if only a few times a year better value than Priority Pass or similar.
