Lounge Pass Updates for April

Each month, Collinson’s Lounge Pass, a pay-to-enter lounge program updates its lounges that have either opened new, closed or changed status.

We’ve put together a concise list of these changes for easy reference

What is Lounge Pass?

Lounge Pas, similar to Priority Pass, is a network of lounges where instead of accessing via a membership, you participate in a pay-as-you-go model, paying for each entry to each lounge.

Bottom Line

It’s normal for new lounges to open on a monthly basis and for some of these lounges to get deleted from network access programs. Knowing which lounge you will have access to is important, and is why we’ve highlighted which lounges you can visit if you plan on paying for a single-visit-entry on your next trip.
