Independent lounge membership program Priority Pass has announced that seven new restaurants have been made available to its customers at Sydney Airport in New South Wales, Australia.
The new additions are owned by food and beverage (F&B) operator Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE), and include Italian restaurant Mach2; gourmet burger restaurant Benny Burger; Spanish restaurant MoVida; Asian offering Wok on Air; and pizza parlor Bar Roma; as well as bar offerings Peroni Bar and Bistro 2020. The offerings are spread throughout the airport’s three terminals.
Justin Banon, director of airport experience, Collinson Group, the parent company of Priority Pass, 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, ARE, said, “We have been at the forefront of bringing fine dining to Australian airports for more than 40 years and we pride ourselves on working with Australia’s premier chefs. ARE offers a range of cuisines and quality at Australian airports that is unmatched. We’re very pleased to partner with Priority Pass and provide its members with a range of dining experiences within Sydney Airport.”
Priority Pass Members can use their membership card to receive an A$36 (US$26) credit off the final bill at each outlet, for themselves and their guests. Each A$36 (US$26) credit will represent a single lounge visit within their existing lounge visit allocation.
