Plaza Premium has introduced a new lounge access pass for their lounges in the Americas which includes those here in Canada. Via View from the Wing we learned this new pass can be purchased for US$59 and includes two lounge visits of three hours each in length. This is perfect for those who don’t have lounge access via their credit card and also don’t need Plaza Premium’s global 2 lounge visit or higher pass.
Canadian Lounge Access
This pass will provide you with access to Plaza Premium Lounges (going West to East here) in Vancouver (4 lounges), Edmonton (1 lounge), Winnipeg (1 lounge), Toronto (6 lounges) and Montreal (1 lounge). These include the new T3 lounge in YYZ, the pre-security concept lounge at YYZ and YUL’s Air France Lounge.

Costs, Savings & Points
The pass costs US$59 for two visits, which is $16 less than the global lounge two visit pass. However if you use promo code SPRING10 you can save an additional 10% on the pass price making it only US$53.10. That works out to US$26.55 per visit or about C$34 per visit. To book a 3 hour visit to any of these lounges on their own runs in the neighbourhood of C$60-$70 so you can see how this can be a worthwhile deal.
Even if you have a credit card with access you may want to look at this pass with the discount code for additional guest or family members as most lounge access programs charge US$32 per guest.
If you are a member of Plaza Premium’s Smart Traveller program (it’s free so you really should join) you will earn 150 Arrture points for each purchase of one of these passes.
The pass is valid for 12 months so do only buy it if you know you’ll use up both visits in that time and it is also transferable/sharable.
