There is a new Priority Pass lounge now available in the UK – the Premium Lounge at Doncaster Sheffield Robin Hood airport (aka Finningley for anyone over 40 who lives in Yorkshire).
The picture they supply, see below, does not fill me with a huge desire to visit but it is almost certainly better than sitting in the terminal!
The lounge has NOT joined Lounge Club so you can’t access it with the Amex Gold free passes. This seems a little odd because, as with the lounge at London Southend I visited recently, I doubt the lounge is very busy or very expensive to run. Whilst Lounge Club probably pays less than Priority Pass I would imagine it would pay enough to cover their costs. After all, Plaza Premium is quite happy to accept it in their fantastic lounges in Heathrow T2 and T4.
I have updated my full UK listings of Priority Pass and Lounge Club lounges which can be found here. I know I need to cover DragonPass as well, before anyone mentions it, but unless your are a Barclays account holder or Gourmet Society member there are still very few ways of accessing it.
