Independent airport lounge membership program Priority Pass 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), new food and drink options include the newly opened 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, 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.”
Priority Pass Members can use their membership card to receive an AUD$36 credit off the final bill at each outlet, for themselves and their guests. Each AUD$36 credit will represent a single lounge visit within their existing lounge visit allocation.
For example, if a Priority Pass Member takes 1 Guest to Mach2, they will receive AUD$72 credit off their bill, which will show on their account as 1 Member + 1 Guest visit. The AUD$36 offer is valid for any type of meal and/or drink and there is no minimum spend.
Launched in 1992, Priority Pass provides frequent travelers with airport lounge access irrespective of their class of travel or airline.
