Priority Pass’s New Lounges: December 2014 Update!

Priority Pass, the global network of airline lounges, recently sent me an email notifying me of their new additions! While the only lounge I have visited was the bizarrely named Louis’ Tavern CIP First Class in Bangkok, the 600 plus lounges worldwide for a definite boon for business travelers. I’m not a business traveler, but I do have complimentary Priority Pass membership through my American Express Platinum credit card. As before, I’ll give you a fun fact about each location so this isn’t just a boring list!

China

  • Dunhuang Airport (DNH) added two new first-class lounges in domestic terminals 1 and 2. The average January temperature in Dunhuang is 17 degrees Fahrenheit. Geeeeez.
  • Shenzhen Baoan International Airport (SZX) added both an “International Guest Lounge” and a “Domestic Guest Lounge” in the new international and domestic terminals. 60% of Shenzhen’s population are migrant workers.
  • Zhuhai Airport (ZUH) added a “Golden Century Lounge” for domestic passengers. Zhuhai has a gate called the “Portas do Cerco” which marks the longtime border between Macau and Guangdong Province.

Sweden

  • Åre Östersund International Airport (OSD) added an “Express Lounge” in the main terminal. Östersund sits on a lake that apparently is inhabited by the unpronounceable Storsjöodjuret, the Swedish Nessie.

U.A.E.

Here are the lounges on a map, if you were so inclined to travel to each one. It would only be a small 17,115 mile trip!
