Lounge membership programme Priority Pass has announced a new restaurant discount for members at JFK in partnership with Bobby Van’s Steakhouse. It is the first restaurant to be added to the Priority Pass programme at JFK.

Priority Pass members can use one of their lounge visits to receive USD$28 off the bill at the restaurant, which is located in Terminal 8, between 6am and 10pm daily. Dry aged steaks are a highlight of the menu, while a well-stocked bar and elegant décor help to create a relaxing setting.

Sheryl Pflaum, executive VP and general manager lifestyle benefits, Collinson Group, said: “We’re constantly looking at ways to further enhance the experiences of our members airside through premium lounge access and exciting partnerships. We’ll continue to add the best restaurants to our programme; expanding the areas where our members can relax, grab a bite to eat, or fire off last minute emails before their flight.”

To use the offer, members must show a boarding pass for same-day travel. One guest can accompany a member and the restaurant will deduct US$28 per visit used for purchase of any meal and/or drinks, up to a maximum of US$56. Eg if a member registers one guest, they will receive US$56 off their bill.

The Priority Pass membership programme has also seen recent additions at other airports, including seven restaurants and bars at Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport, BOTEJYU restaurant at Osaka, Kansai International and the Grain Store Café & Bar at London Gatwick.

Priority Pass, the first and largest independent airport lounge membership programme, is accepted at more than 1,000 lounges in more than 130 countries. Part of the Collinson Group, it also provides access to other dining, retail and spa offers through the Priority Pass app.

Bringing greater variety to lounge members than the traditional lounge-only offering, the system has previously sparked interest on the Business Traveller forum. Read more here.

Subscribers to Business Traveller can receive up to 20 per cent off Priority Pass membership.
