Priority Pass has announced the latest addition to its network of lounges: the Alaska Lounge at JFK New York Terminal 7. The new lounge is located airside on the mezzanine floor above security and opened on April 30, 2018.
Terms Of Priority Pass Access
- Access is only permitted 3 hours prior to departure
- Cardholders and guests need to show a Boarding Pass for travel on the same day
- Cardholders are limited to 2 guests or immediate family (spouse and children under 21)
- Children under 2 are admitted free of charge
- Alcoholic drinks are limited to 3 per adult
- Premium alcoholic drinks are subject to payment
This lounge comes as a welcome addition and solves a problem at JFK terminal 7 as it is the first Priority Pass Lounge in the terminal. Iberia, BA, and Qantas are the main airlines which use terminal 7. In the past, this has meant that if you did not have status with a Oneworld airline, and were flying economy it was almost impossible to gain lounge access. Now you should be able to gain lounge access with your Priority Pass membership regardless of your class of travel.
The guest policy is a little restrictive, but not by much. Although various credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and The Platinum Card® from American Express provide complimentary Priority Pass membership, they have different guest policies. In this case, regardless of how many guests your credit card issuer allows, you are limited to 2 guests or immediate family members only.
