Priority Pass has added a range of bars and restaurants at Sydney Airport to its lounge network. While the bars and restaurants are not actual lounges, they may provide a reasonable alternative, allowing members a bite to eat, or a drink
Under the offer, members of Priority Pass are offered a credit at participating businesses. The credit on offer is currently $36 per member per visit.
Participating Bars and Restaurants
Priority Pass has teamed up with bars and restuarants in each of the three terminals in Sydney. These are as follows:
Terminal 1 (International)
Terminal 2 (Domestic)
Terminal 3 (Qantas Domestic)
Under the offer members and their guests are offered a credit of $36 AUD per person. The credit is offered off the final bill and applied per person per visit. If you soend over the $36 credit, then you will need to make up the difference. On the other hand, if you spend less, there is no cash value on the amount you didn;t spend – it is simply gone.
Priority Pass is a network of over 1,000 independent lounges across the world. In Australia, they have generally had a fairly limited presence. This is largely due to the lack of suitable independent lounges in Australian Airports.
In Australia, Priority Pass members can access lounges in Brisbane, Cairns and Darwin. While Sydney Airport has a Plaza Premium lounge, it is not included in the Priority Pass network.
While they have not been able to gain lounges in Sydney, the addition of a number of restaurants and bars is a welcome addition to the network.
They are not the first restaurants in the network – there are a couple of others. Examples include the Grain Store at Gatwick Airport, At that restaurant, a 15 Pound credit is available.
Overall, the addition of these bars and restaurants is a welcome addition the network in Australia. Hopefully, over time, they will extend the offer to more Australian Airports. While they are not lounges, they will help fill the gap in the Priority Pass network in Australia.
