List of Plaza Premium Lounges

With the opening of another Plaza Premium Lounge at the Vancouver International Airport and the discontinuation of a reward redemption option, I thought it would be a good time to update the list of lounges.

There are many benefits of lounge access, some lounges include: computer stations, free drinks and food, more comfortable seating, personal assistance, shower facilities, Wi-Fi, etc.

Unfortunately, we used to be able to redeem American Express Membership Rewards points for a lounge pass, but that rewards seems to have been discontinued.

You can however use your American Express Platinum Card, which gives you a complimentary Priority Pass membership. The membership allows you unlimited access to Plaza Premium Lounges when you present your credit card, along with a valid ticket for travel on that day on any airline or class of service. If you’re travelling with a guest, he or she may accompany you free of charge as well. For each additional guest, it will cost $27 USD per person, per visit.

The BMO World Elite MasterCard also gives 4 lounge passes that goes along with the Priority Pass membership.
