Over 60 Plaza Premium airport lounges are rejoining the Priority Pass program

ADVERTISEMENT

In mid-2021, Priority Pass announced that Plaza Premium will leave the program. This was a huge blow to cardholders with free Priority Pass access, especially to those who travel a lot to/from airports with many Plaza Premium lounges, like Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

This has changed! Priority Pass has announced that over 60 Plaza Premium lounges will rejoin the program by 20 June 2023.

Bottom line

This is great news for Priority Pass members with cards that provide complimentary access to airport lounges as in my experience, Plaza Premium lounges have better standards (e.g. food, cleanliness) than most other contract lounges.

Are you a Priority Pass holder heading to Kuala Lumpur on a low-cost carrier? You can now have a free meal upon arrival at Plaza Premium Lounge Kuala Lumpur Airport Terminal 2!

  1. Do we have a list of cards that works for Plaza premium? The above list shows only priority pass and dragon pass.

    Also, some countries are repeated in several opening dates. Any idea why?

    • Plaza Premium lounges can now be accessed with Priority Pass and DragonPass. Here’s a list of the best cards for free airport lounge visits: https://suitesmile.com/best-airport-lounge-miles-credit-cards-in-singapore/

      I am not sure why some airports are listed twice. This is probably because some lounges in the same airport have different Priority Pass acceptance dates. It also doesn’t help that prioritypass.com has not included these lounges on those airports, even though the new agreement started yesterday.
