Barclays Premier Life signs Airport AngelTM to provide Airport Lounge Pass Benefits

Manchester, 25th November 2008 – Airport Angel, The Leapfrog Group’s global independent airport lounge programme has agreed a contract to provide lounge access for Barclays Premier Life customers. 

Airport Angel is providing membership to new Barclays Premier Life customers from November 2008 and to existing Barclays Premier Life customers from 1st January 2009. 

Barclays Premier Life customers will receive free airport passes plus Airport Texts.  This is a unique real-time personal text service which guides passengers through their journey from arrival at the departure airport, right through to the return journey back into the UK.  Airport Texts provide passengers with essential trip updates such as delay, check-in, and boarding and arrival information. There is also the option to provide nominated partners or friends with information to facilitate the onward travel.

Simon Ward, managing director of Airport Angel, says:  “We are delighted to add Barclays to the growing list of blue chip clients who value our flexible, innovative service.   Barclays Premier Life provides a customised approach to personal banking and we believe we have tailored the Airport Angel service to the needs of their customers.”
Airport Angel works with ClimateCare to provide passengers with the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions incurred through their travel.
