The ever-expanding Priority Pass lounge network is a great option when you’re thinking about investing in lounge access — or a credit card that comes with lounge access. Today, Priority Pass announced that it’s become the first independent lounge provider to offer more than 1,000 lounges across the world.

In the past year, Priority Pass has added more than 130 lounges across the globe. The lounge network has added 32 lounges to the Asia Pacific region, more specifically, 11 in China in addition to new lounges in Indonesia, Taiwan, Myanmar, Cambodia, New Zealand and Australia. Priority Pass has also increased its mark in other parts of the world. In the past year, it’s also added 69 new lounges across Europe, the Middle East and Africa — more specifically, 47 lounges across Europe, 12 in Africa and 10 in the Middle East. Finally, a whopping 31 new lounges have been added in Russia, there have been 18 new lounges in South America and six new lounges in the US.

Priority Pass lounge access at the Prestige level costs $399 per year. Thankfully, there are several credit cards that offer complimentary memberships, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card, Citi Prestige, Platinum Card from American Express and its business version.
