The lounge at Norwich International Airport joins Priority Pass

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

I’m not sure that I knew Norwich International Airport even had an Executive Lounge but it does and it has now joined Priority Pass!

(EDIT:  apparently the lounge was in Priority Pass in the past but did not immediately rejoin post refurbishment.)

Full details are on the Norwich Airport website here.

The lounge is open from 4am until the last flight of the evening departs.  It is aimed at KLM business class and status customers, Loganair passengers on Fly Flex+ tickets and selected Flybe customers travelling to Aberdeen.

As well as Priority Pass (free with Amex Platinum), you can also get in with Lounge Pass (two free passes with Amex Gold), LoungeKey (from a World Elite Mastercard), Diners Club International or DragonPass.  You can also pay on the door (£20) or book in advance via Lounge Pass.  Not that no children under 12 are allowed and there is a three drink limit!

If anyone is planning to visit and would like to write a short review for us, with a few photographs, let me know.

Getting airport lounge access via a UK credit card

As a reminder, here are the three options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:

The Platinum Card from American Express

Two free Priority Pass cards (one for you, one for your supplementary Platinum cardholder, each admitting two – so a family of four gets in free) giving access to every lounge in the Priority Pass network – search it here.  You also get access to Plaza Premium, Delta and Eurostar lounges.  Our American Express Platinum review is here.

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold

You get a Lounge Club card loaded with two free visits to any Lounge Club network lounge – see the list here.  The list is slightly shorter than the Priority Pass list, but not by much.  Additional visits are charged at £20 per person.  You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.  No annual fee in Year 1.  Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.

HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard

You get a free LoungeKey card allowing you access to any property in the LoungeKey network.  Guests are charged at £20 although regular travellers will find it cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card (adults only, of course).  The card has an annual fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer.  Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.
