Q&As about Free Airport Lounge Access from Customers

Q: What are airport lounges?
Q: How many airport lounges are there in Australia and overseas?
Q: Do I just flash my credit card to get into an airport lounge?

No, you need to a member of the relevant frequent flyer program (QFF member to get access to a Qantas Lounge) and use your airport lounge pass when going in.

Q: Can I get into a airport lounge every time I travel?
Q: Will the airport access pass get me any airport lounge?
Q: How many passes do I get with my credit card?
Q: Don’t I already get entry to airport lounges with my business class ticket?

Yes.

Q: How many people can get access to the lounge on each pass?

Each pass is valid for one visit for one person only. That means you’re not entitled to bring in a guest with you on your singe person pass. They’ll need their own pass.

Q: Can I sell my unused airport lounge passes?

No.
