Back in October 2020, Priority Pass announced that it was removing No1 Lounges from the portfolio.

As part of the acquisition by Airport Dimensions and Swissport, the No1 Lounges, as well as Clubrooms brand, will be available to Priority Pass members once again. Collinson also owns Priority Pass as well as 50% of Club Aspire lounges.

As of Monday afternoon, the No1 Lounges are not yet showing on the Priority Pass website. Once they are, you can look to pre-book your stop in a lounge prior to boarding your flight.

No1 Lounges are a predominantly U.K.-based set of lounges. The group has nine lounges available in the following U.K. airports: London Gatwick (LGW), London Heathrow (LHR) and Birmingham (BHX).

A Priority Pass membership is one of the most valuable lounge benefits for frequent flyers. If you’re not loyal to one airline in particular, a membership will grant you access when you’re flying through any airport with a Priority Pass lounge.

Aside from buying a membership outright, both the Platinum Card from American Express and the Business Platinum Card from American Express comes with complimentary memberships to the Priority Pass programme — a value worth £339 annually.
