INDIA. Priority Pass Access India (PPAI), the new domestic lounge experience owned and operated by Collinson, has struck a partnership with payment network Visa. The agreement will see cardholders in India under the Visa domestic lounge programme gain access to Priority Pass’s extensive lounge network across India.
Eligible payment cardholders can enjoy access to over 50 premium lounges and airport experiences located across major cities in India. For access, they simply tap or swipe their Visa credit or debit card on Pine Labs’ point of sale terminals.
When travelling internationally, Visa cardholders can continue to enjoy lounge access and experiences through LoungeKey, PPAI’s global sister brand.
Eligible cardholders under this programme will also have access to a comprehensive range of merchant offers across the Indian airport ecosystem through Collinson’s strategic local partner Poshvine.
They can take advantage of discount offers across dining, retail, spa, airport transfers, meet & greets and sleeping pods.
Eligible Visa cardholders may also use co-funded value vouchers with leading quick-service restaurants and ride-hailing services. This partnership, according to Collinson, creates a seamless travel experience, enhancing Visa cardholders’ journeys at every touchpoint through access to a holistic travel ecosystem.
Collinson President Asia Pacific Todd Handcock said: “India remains one of the world’s busiest domestic travel markets, and we hope to facilitate this strong desire to travel by providing our clients’ customers with a touch of luxury in a safe and comfortable environment.”
He added: “We are delighted to announce a partnership with Visa in India which will offer frequent travellers not only easy access to over 50 premium domestic airport lounges, but a broader ecosystem of experiences that enhance journeys at every touchpoint.”
