I see that there hasn't been a post regarding news on the Cairns Reef Lounge closure - so I would like to do so and also ask if anyone has insight regarding potential lounge openings at Cairns International.
Thank you for your email about lounge access for Priority Pass members at Cairns International Airport.
Following a mutual review, Priority Pass and Reef, will temporarily suspend our lounge partnership till further notice.
Does any one know of potential new international lounges in Cairns International?

No unfortunately. In fact the lounge issue has never been addressed in any long term plan presented by CNS airport either, the Reef lounge was never up to a reasonable standard that most travellers would expect these days. There is a hope that with the change of Silkair to Singapore Airlines that they may take over the running of the lounge, but at one flight a day it seems a stretch. The most likely scenario is the lounge will close and CNS airport will focus on LCC, which is a shame.

That is not good news! Although I only used it occasionally it was one of the few places that I used my Priority Pass.
