IN BRIEF | High-spending American Express cardholders can now flash their Platinum charge card or invitation-only Centurion Card at Plaza Premium’s international network of over 50 airport lounges to enjoy complimentary access prior to any domestic or international flight with any airline.
Useful where your regular lounge is a bit crowded, your airline doesn’t have a lounge at all or even when simply stuck in economy, you’ll find Plaza Premium lounges in many cities popular with Aussie travellers including in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and London Heathrow, among others.
Closer to home, your Platinum or Centurion card also opens the doors to the new Plaza Premium Lounge at Brisbane Airport…
… currently serving as the de facto Qantas lounge while the airline’s own facility is refurbished.

Joining the list are several new Plaza Premium-brand lounges in Rio de Janeiro, set to open ahead of the 2016 Summer Olympics for AMEX cardholders making the trek to Brazil.
An American Express Australia spokesperson confirmed to Australian Business Traveller that Platinum and Centurion cardholders can be joined by a guest in these lounges at no charge.
