Priority Pass, part of the Collison Group, has added 32 lounges to its portfolio this year in spite of the pandemic. By the end of 2021 it is expecting to have grown by more than 150 offerings.
In the UK all 19 Aspire Lounges accept the Priority Pass.
The announcement was clearly timed to coincide with today’s relaxation of the Covid-19 rules.
Collinson’s joint CEO David Evans said: “Our investment in Priority Pass is a clear reflection of our confidence in the travel recovery, which our research has shown will also include an increased appetite for premium spaces and experiences while travelling.
“But the strong growth of our Priority Pass network is only one facet of the work Collinson has done in the past year to restart travel.
“As a family company with more than a 30-year history sitting at the intersection of travel and financial services, we know the damage that Covid has done to travel, international commerce and trade, and is why we’re committed to efforts such as rolling out testing, and working with governments and the travel industry to build and roll out new solutions. And now, with a network growing to include over 1,500 lounges and premium experiences available, we look forward to welcoming travellers back to our Priority Pass programme as they return to travel.”
