Priority has added three new lounges in Thailand to its portfolio, following an agreement with flag carrier Thai Airways.
Members now have access to the domestic Royal orchid lounges at Phuket International, Chiang Mai International and Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airports.
Priority Pass entry includes 2.5 hours of lounge usage, free wifi, and access to the snack and refreshment bar (alcohol not included).
The group currently offers members access to over 1,300 lounges and experiences in over 650 airports across 148 countries.
Thai Airways filed for bankruptcy protection in May 2020 following the onset of Covid-19, and is currently undergoing a business rehabilitation programme. A recent Reuters report states that the carrier is to sell 42 aircraft and cut nearly a third of its workforce as part of plans to cut costs.
Commenting on the new additions to the Priority Pass portfolio Todd Handcock, President, Asia Pacific, of owner Collinson said:
“We are delighted to announce this partnership to our members, which will see three premium domestic lounges across Thailand added to the Priority Pass programme.
“Despite the uncertainties of the pandemic, domestic travel continues to gather pace. Increasing our domestic lounge offering with Thailand’s national carrier Thai Airways caters to this strong desire to travel, while providing a touch of luxury in a safe and comfortable environment.”
