Collinson extends lounge partnership with Virgin Atlantic in United States

Collinson, a global leader in loyalty and benefits and operator of Priority Pass, announces it has further extended its exclusive lounge access partnership with Virgin Atlantic. Access to a further two Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse lounges, in Washington DC Dulles International and New York NJ Newark International, has been added to Priority Pass, LoungeKey and Lounge Club, in addition to the Clubhouse at LAX Los Angeles. 

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses, known for their exclusivity and luxurious surroundings, are located in just ten locations around the world. The lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport is in Concourse A, across from Gate A32, and will be open to customers of Collinson’s airport experiences programs between 06:00 and 13:30 every day. Beautifully decorated with art created by local artists and with sweeping views across the airport, it’s the perfect place for travelers to relax before a flight.

The Clubhouse at Newark Liberty International Airport is located after the security checkpoint in Terminal B, close to the gates and is open to Collinson customers between 14:00 – 18:00 each day. The lounge gives visitors a final taste of Manhattan before take-off - recently refurbished, this stylish and indulgent space is the ideal place to unwind after the excitement of New York City. 

The Clubhouses at Newark and Washington will both offer members of Priority Pass, LoungeKey and Lounge Club complimentary food and drinks alongside a range of other amenities and are available to access with immediate effect.

Christopher Evans, Joint CEO, Collinson, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be further extending our partnership with Virgin Atlantic, giving customers and members access to three of the six Virgin Clubhouse lounges located across the United States. We know that our customers and members living in the US will love being able to access these beautiful lounges as will those travelling from abroad.”

Matthew Callard, Head of Clubhouses, Virgin Atlantic added: “Following the success of our partnership with Collinson at our Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at LAX it was an easy decision to expand our relationship. We look forward to welcoming Collinson customers into our Newark and Washington DC lounges.”

Usually reserved for business and first-class passengers, as well as Flying Club Gold members, visitors from Priority Pass, LoungeKey and Lounge Club can now access the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses at Newark Liberty International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport.
