Priority Pass has extended its coverage of airport dining to Brisbane, with three outlets at Brisbane's domestic and international terminal now offering $36 of food and drink credit.
The program works in the same way as it does for seven restaurants, bars and bistros in Sydney Airport: order your food and drink as usual and when the bill comes, present your Priority Pass card – either the plastic version or the smartphone app – to slash $36 off the bill.
(And if your bill happens to come in under $36, then it's all on the house.)
Each $36 credit counts as one 'lounge visit' under the Priority Pass membership schemes, and is available at the following Brisbane Airport outlets:
- Graze Grill & Bar, a 'delicatessen-style concept' at the Qantas satellite arm of the domestic terminal (near gates 16-21)
- Bar Roma, an Italian-inspired trattoria with pizza, pasta and sweet treats at Qantas satellite arm of the domestic terminal (opposite gates 23 & 24)
- Corretto Cafe & Bar, a full-service restaurant located landside of the international terminal (before immigration and security) at the northern side of the 4th floor food court
Those are, of course, in addition to access to the international terminal's Plaza Premium Lounge.
