The guide to Priority Pass lounges at DFW

minute read

    Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is about halfway between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. Couple this prime location with the airport's massive size, and it's easy to see why DFW serves hundreds of worldwide destinations.

    One benefit of DFW being so vast is that Priority Pass™ members could have many options to escape one of the busiest airports in the world.

    Options for Priority Pass at DFW

    The Priority Pass network of lounges is strong at DFW Airport. At the time of writing, here are the facilities that Priority Pass members can access during a wait at DFW.

    Minute Suites – Terminal A and Terminal D

    Despite the name, a standard allowance at a Minute Suite is an hour. Each suite has a comfortable daybed sofa, pillows, fresh blankets and a sound-masking system. Common amenities like Wi-Fi, TV, internet and air conditioning are also included. If you don't need a nap, you could use your suite's workstation. You can also access the latest flight information to stay on top of your trip's status.

    Terminal A Minute Suites

    It could be helpful to contact Minute Suites before you visit and make a reservation.

    Gameway – Terminal B and Terminal E

    A fun twist on what you'd expect from an airport lounge, Gameway is equipped with gaming stations. Each one includes high speed internet, noise-canceling headphones, charging ports and luggage storage. Pass the time with many recent games in a comfortable leather chair, even if you're not much of a gamer.

    You'll also find common amenities like food, drinks, TV and air conditioning. The standard visit limit is 2 hours, and DFW airport has two Gameway locations participating in the Priority Pass network:

    Spas in the Priority Pass network at DFW

    Be Relax is a chain of spas with two locations in DFW. Priority Pass members can choose from several services, including massage and aromatherapy:

    • Terminal B: Next to gate B28

    These pampering services might be just what's needed to unwind before or after a flight.

    How to access DFW locations

    Here are several ways to get airport lounge access: Priority Pass membership, Club Pass and as a credit card benefit.

    Priority Pass Membership

    When you sign up for a membership with Priority Pass, you can choose from annual plans that start at $99. The membership levels suit different travel needs. For instance, if you want unlimited access to lounges, consider the Prestige membership plan. The Club airport lounges participate in the Priority Pass network, so you can access The Club lounges at DFW with a Priority Pass membership.

    Club Pass from The Club

    A single-use Club Pass can give you direct access to The Club DFW in Terminal D, described above. You can enjoy the same experience you'd get with a Priority Pass membership. For more information about a Club Pass, visit
