How long can I stay in the Aspire Lounge for?

When you purchase entry into the Aspire Lounge at San Diego, you purchase a day pass which allows you up to 8 hours in this airport lounge. 

Does this lounge have a good view of the airfield?

Yes, this lounge is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, meaning the busy airfield is viewable from a large proportion of the lounge. Not only this, but the bar sits in front of these windows meaning you can relax at the bar and take in the views.

Can this lounge be used on arrival?

Yes, if you arrive into Terminal 2 East, you can use the lounge on arrival, grab a coffee, freshen up and head off afterwards.   

Does this lounge have a shower?

Yes, this lounge has a shower which can be used by customers either before departing or on arrival.    

Can I get into this airport lounge for free?

Access to the lounge can be obtained via various methods such as when travelling on certain airlines in Business Class, with a Priority Pass, American Express® or Dragonpass card, all of which allow access into the lounge with a swipe of the card at reception.

We do not charge a separate fee to customers that gain access via these methods, but that's not to say you will not be charged by your card supplier, as some give unlimited yearly access whilst others give a limited number of lounge visits per year.

It's best to check before travelling with your provider. If you do not get access to the lounge via any of these methods, you can prebook on this site (for a reduced fee), or simply pay on the day.

Is this lounge after security?

Yes, this lounge is after security (we call this ‘airside’) meaning you will pass through security screening before being able to gain access. On the plus side, this does mean the hard work is done and you can sit back and relax before your flight.

Can I gain lounge access with my American Express® Platinum or Centurion card?

Yes, you can gain access to the lounge using these American Express® cards as long as you have an active account / card has not expired and you are the account holder. Simply show your AMEX card to the receptionist and gain access this way.

Can I gain lounge access to this lounge via ‘Lounge Key’ or my Credit Card?

Yes, we work extensively with ‘Lounge Key’ meaning your qualifying bank card can gain you access to the lounge. It’s always best to check your access privileges, before travelling, with your provider.

Does this lounge accept Dragonpass?

Yes, we work extensively with Dragonpass and Dragonpass via the Mastercard® Travel Pass, whereby qualifying Mastercard® customers can gain access with their bank card. If you are a Mastercard® customer, check your eligibility before you travel here.

How do Airport Lounges work?

On a simple level, our lounges offer a relaxing, comfortable place to stay before your flight. Unlike cafés and restaurants, we don’t want you to leave as soon as possible to free up a chair or sofa. We generally look after guests for 2 or 3 hours, offering Free WiFi, Food and Drink throughout your stay.

How you gain access is up to you. You can pre-book your visit on this site if you know your flight date / times. This is the most cost effective way of buying access. Alternatively, you may receive ‘travel perks’ with your bank account and are able to enter the lounge that way. Lastly, you may have an American Express® Platinum card, Priority Pass card or Dragonpass card – all of which allow access.

Can anyone use an airport lounge?

Yes, anyone can use the lounge either by paying on the day or by booking on this site (this is the cheapest method of paid entry). You don’t need to be travelling in First Class, Business Class or be part of any frequent flyer schemes. You can simply pay and use the lounge, with all the benefits such as complimentary Food, Drink, WiFi and a comfortable seat with fantastic views.

You can also gain access via many of the methods we accept such as Priority pass, Dragonpass, and American Express® Platinum cards.

Do you offer military/emergency worker discounts?

Yes. As part of our thank you to those serving in the military or those that work as emergency workers, we offer discounts to our lounges. We call it our ‘Thank U’ rate. The ‘Thank U’ rate reduces the price for entry below what you will pay on this website for pre-booking, so simply come to the lounge either in uniform or with a form of ID and gain access.
