Priority Pass no longer has a presence at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA).

A TPG reader submitted the tip, stating that he had specifically booked a trip out of LGA in order to utilize Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounge on Level 3 of Concourse A. TPG confirmed with a Priority Pass customer service representative that pass holders no longer have access to any lounges at LGA, although the representative was unable to clarify when the change was made.

Priority Pass typically announces changes on the Lounge Updates section of its website, but does not list an entry for any updates at LaGuardia. On September 23, a spokesperson for Priority Pass clarified that “As of 21st September, this lounge is no longer part of the Priority Pass network.” Air Canada could not be reached for comment.

Priority Pass offers travelers the opportunity to access its network of lounges. And, instead of purchasing a membership, several premium credit cards, such as the Platinum Card® from American Express and the Chase Sapphire Reserve, offer it for free.
