Ever wonder how you rarely see the majority of first class passengers in the waiting areas by the gates at the airport? Most likely, those flyers are members of Priority Pass.

Whether you have a Group 1 seat on Delta or a Group 5 seat on Frontier, you can enhance your airport experience with Priority Pass. Here are five reasons to subscribe to a Priority Pass membership.

1. Airport Lounge Access


Priority Pass partners with and operates more than 1,300 airport lounges around the world. If you travel domestic or internationally more than 3 to 4 times a year, you’ll appreciate a Priority Pass lounge membership.

2. Complimentary Food, Drink, & Wifi


Nearly all the airport lounges within the program provide complimentary food and beverages, wifi, and very comfortable seating. Some lounges even have showers for travelers who need to freshen up between layovers.

3. Free Membership With Major Travel Credit Cards


Sign up for any of the top tier travel credit cards such as Platinum American Express or Chase Sapphire Preferred for a free membership or for a number of day passes per year to airport lounges around the globe.

4. Minute Suites


Minute Suites offers private retreats, within airport terminals to nap, relax, work and more.


5. Bring A Friend


Another great perk for Priority Pass members is that you can have a guest join you for free or for a fee, depending on the type of membership you have. So if you’re traveling with a loved one or a good friend, no need to leave them stranded at the terminal, they can join you.
