Priority Club Updates App to Find Closest Airport Lounges CheapOair Staff February 22, 2011 general Priority Club Updates Its App Priority Club, which provides its members with access to some 600 airport lounges around the world, has updated its free lounge-finder iPhone and iPad apps. What can be more frustrating than arriving in an unfamiliar airport, lugging your bags around, and trying to locate a lounge where you can fire up your laptop and grab something to eat away from the throngs? Priority Club’s apps have a Find Nearest Lounge feature, which use the iPhone and iPad GPS functionality to find the closest lounge in the Priority Club network. The apps, which were enhanced earlier this month, now enable you to view images of the lounges, save your favorites and view your recent searches. Both apps are offered via free download in the Apple iTunes store. However, the catch is that to get into the airport lounges once you’ve found them, you need to be a member of Priority Club. That’s, of course, if you aren’t otherwise qualified for entry by the airline’s frequent flyer program. U.S. members of Priority Club’s global program can pay a $99 annual fee to join, and then they pay $27 per visit to get into a lounge. You can bring a guest with you for an additional $27. Priority Club’s iPhone and iPad apps were developed by Syndicated Methods, a California company. Priority Club says it expects to release lounge finder apps for Android and Blackberry devices within the next couple of months.
