Our Story

Since 1992, Priority Pass has been providing frequent travelers with independent airport lounge access worldwide. Our network of lounges continues to grow from strength to strength today.

24 years ago our founder watched premium-class airline ticket holders enjoying the exclusivity and tranquility of their airport lounges, as he endured the chaos of the departure hall.

His answer was to create Priority Pass – a club that is simultaneously inclusive (affordable to all) and exclusively for those who value a little piece of civilization on their journey. In short, a place where you are always treated like No. 1, rather than part of the herd.

Since 1992, several have tried to follow our lead. But our determination to remain the No.1 choice has driven unrivaled investment in lounges, resources, processes, technology, and partnerships.

The result is that today Priority Pass still offers more lounges, in more cities, in more countries than any other program. And it's why every visit is defined by faster, easier access.

So it's little wonder that Priority Pass remains the program of choice for the most discerning independent travelers, corporate customers and global loyalty schemes.

Today, millions of Members across more than 120 countries are enjoying that No 1. experience envisaged by our founder over two decades ago.

Perhaps it’s time you joined them. Priority Pass has three different membership plans to suit all types of traveler - Standard, Standard Plus and Prestige. Regardless if you travel infrequently or are a seasoned, regular traveler, Priority Pass can ensure that your journey always begins stress-free in one of 950+ airport lounges worldwide.
