Priority Pass continues to expand the number of bars and restaurants at Sydney Airport on offer to members. The latest eatery to join the network is Luke Mangan’s Chicken Confidential. This brings the total number of restaurants in the international terminal to 4.
Chicken Confidential is a chicken burger operation, and prides itself on being 100% organic. It is located land side in Terminal 1.
While the bars and restaurants are not actual lounges, they may provide a reasonable alternative. They offer members the opportunity to use their membership to get a bite to eat, or have 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 restaurants 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 spend 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.
