Recently the team and I took a whirlwind trip across the Tasman to New Zealand and back. With the quick turn around, it was imperative that we found some down time to regroup and unwind on this filming trip. On our 36 hour trip to New Zealand, Priority Pass gave us access to airport lounges in both Brisbane International and Auckland airport.
Not all of us fly all the time, nor do we have allegiance to a singular airline, so we have not had the opportunity to rack up status credits that give us access to a particular carrier lounge. So to be able to take advantage of the airport lounge to take a break and prepare for the huge shot list ahead of us greatly lightened our work load down the line.
Priority Pass gives you access to 1200 airport lounges globally, regardless of how often you fly. If the airport does not have a lounge they will often hook you up with one of their partner restaurant and provide a credit towards orders food and drinks. We went and checked out the Corretto Bar & Café for a cheeky cake and coffee after checking into our flight and heading to the lounge.
The Priority Pass lounge is the ultimate place to unwind and get prepared before hopping on your flight, especially with the free Wi-Fi available. We used our three hours in the lounge to start organising our time in New Zealand, with a coffee in hand of course. The Premium lounge had a huge variety of food available, catering to all types of food preferences, as well as a range of soft drinks and alcohol.
After some long days spent shooting in New Zealand it was time to re-group and start heading back to sunny Queensland, and there was no better place to do so than in the Auckland International airport.
Thanks to Priority Pass we were able to gain access to the lovely Strata Lounge, located in the central part of the airport. Naturally, we arrived three and a half hours ahead of our departure to make the most of the Priority Passes benefits. Once again, we were treated to an incredible array of food and an impressive wine list, which helped the time before our flight fly by. We once again hopped on the free Wi-Fi and got to work on editing.
Having access to airport lounges throughout our travels not only made our trip more enjoyable, but allowed us to get work done at both ends of our journey. After this experience, it is safe to say that we cannot imagine travelling without Priority Pass in the future.
