Priority Pass is a lounge membership program that provides access to airport lounges across the globe, regardless of which airline you’re flying on.

The latest addition to Priority Pass benefits is that you can now use your Priority Pass card to receive $36 per person complimentary at a range of restaurants and bars in Terminals 1, 2, and 3 at Sydney Airport.

One of my favourite places to eat (beside the Qantas First Class Lounge), is Movida in Terminal 2 – conveniently located ahead of your Virgin Australia flight.

Cardholders and accompanying guests will receive AUD$36 off the final bill per person per visit, valid on any type of meal and/or drinks upon presentation of a valid card.

Priority Pass Sydney - The Flight Doc

The great thing about Priority Pass – is that it is a complimentary included benefit of being an American Express Platinum cardholder.

The 3rd C in The Flight Doc’s Law of 5Cs refers to Compounding – or being able to ramp up your points-earning abilities.

Whilst The Flight Doc’s strategies to fly First Class for less than the cost of Economy don’t require you to sign-up to credit cards – they can give your travel opportunities a huge boost.

The Platinum Card by American Express is a brilliant and important card in the wallet of many savvy and sophisticated frequent flyers.

The American Express Platinum card goes everywhere with me, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
