Cathay Pacific now offers travelers the ability to pay for access to its airport lounges. Marco Polo Club members can pay a fee of HK$600 ($75) for each visit to enter lounges in Manila (MNL), Melbourne (MEL) and Vancouver (YVR).

Cathay joins a small number of airlines that allow passengers paid access to lounges. Emirates introduced the practice last year for its Dubai (DXB) lounges, before adding it to London Heathrow (LHR) and Gatwick (LGW).

Cathay’s offer extends only to three of its lounges: Manila Cathay Pacific Lounge near Gate 114 at Ninoy Aquino International Airport; Melbourne Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge at Melbourne Airport’s Terminal 2; and Vancouver Cathay Pacific Lounge by Gate D67 at Vancouver International Airport.

For now, the pay to enter scheme runs only until March 31, 2019.

Participants can only enter the lounge on the day they’re flying on a Cathay Pacific- or Cathay Dragon-operated flight. The promotion extends to travel companions, friends or family members, with each person costing HK$600.
