"Velocity Silver, Gold and Platinum members will be able to access priority check-in, priority boarding and additional baggage allowances. Velocity Gold and Platinum members will also be able to access eligible Hong Kong Airlines and Hainan Airlines operated lounges. "

An email said, when it came this morning.

It hasn't been formally announced so it doesn't seem to work for now.

Despite it not being official, I was still able to get into the Hainan lounge at Urumqi. There are actually two lounges in their domestic Terminal 2 location, either side of the security checkpoint. One lounge, to the right of Security at Gate 11, featured a large seating area for a few dozen people and small snack and drinks facility. The second lounge, to the left of Security at Gate 12, features a formal dining area for 44 people, a small tv nook, 3 or 4 business area seats and 12 lounge seats. The lounge only opened at 6am, with meals not available until 6:30 once they were delivered in airline carts from a distant kitchen. The food on offer had a local islamic theme, with lamb and sweet carrot & pilaf rice. There was plenty of staff on hand despite being small loungues, think regional Australian airport size, and they were keen and eager to serve.

May I ask does lounge access only applicable for flights to/from Australia for Hainan and Hong Kong Airlines?
I am planning a trip to Hangzhou from Hong Kong in February and I am on Velocity Gold. So I just wondering whether I can get priority check in, boarding, luggage and lounge access? Thank you.
