Priority Pass partners with Airport Retail Enterprises to offer new dining options at Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport

08 May 2017
Priority Pass™, the world’s original and largest independent lounge membership program, today announces that it has added seven new restaurants to its membership program at Sydney Kingsford Smith International airport.

Through a new partnership with airport dining experts Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE), Priority Pass now provides additional choice for its Members at seven restaurants and bars throughout the airport’s three terminals. The new food and drink options include the newly opened stylish Peroni Bar and Mach2, sister restaurant to the Sydney dining institution, “Machiavelli”, serving fresh Italian dishes and seafood.


Justin Banon, Director of Airport Experience, Collinson Group, owners of Priority Pass said: “Travelers are less willing to pay a premium to upgrade their plane seats, preferring to enhance their travel experience with benefits such as lounge access and dining experiences at the airport. Providing our Members with access to quality restaurants and bars supports our focus on making the whole airport experience more relaxing and enjoyable for discerning travelers.”


Peter Butts, Chairman, Airport Retail Enterprises, commented: “ARE has been at the forefront of bringing fine dining to Australian airports for over 40 years and we pride ourselves on working with Australia’s premier chefs. ARE offer a range of cuisines and quality at Australian airports that is unmatched. We’re very pleased to partner with Priority Pass and provide their Members with a range of dining experiences within Sydney Kingsford Smith International airport.”
