Colorado Springs Airport (COS) is thrilled to announce a transition from its current Premier Lounge to a distinguished Global Lounge Network (GLN) lounge. The inauguration of GLN's new lounge is set to take place in the third quarter of 2024, promising a much improved and unparalleled experience for travelers.
Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation for Colorado Springs Airport, shared his enthusiasm about this collaboration, stating, "This partnership between COS and GLN, aimed at enhancing our airport lounge, exemplifies our unwavering commitment to elevating the traveler experience through our ambitious ElevateCOS initiative, accompanied by complementary projects that include enhancements to our food and beverage offerings and retail amenities."
GLN is a Miami-based company that operates and markets VIP lounges at airports around the world. Current GLN customers include airlines, airports, airline alliances, banks, and lounge-access card companies. They specialize in financing, designing, building, renovating, operating, and marketing VIP lounges for airports and airlines on an international scale. GLN has partnered with the Colorado Springs Airport as one of the select domestic locations for their innovative lounge concept.
"At Global Lounge Network we strive to always provide friendly, personalized all-inclusive service with attention to every detail. We are excited to serve Colorado Springs, where our values of caring, service, and quality align closely with the people of southern Colorado.” says Jeffrey Stern, Founder and CEO, of Global Lounge Network.
The forthcoming lounge, aptly named "The Lounge," will offer an array of sophisticated amenities. These include personalized concierge services, a diverse menu of elevated food and beverage options (including alcoholic beverages), dedicated workstations and a self-serve coffee bar.
While the GLN membership won't encompass the parking privileges provided by the existing Premier Lounge membership, COS is set to introduce a dedicated parking membership program before May 1, coinciding with the expiration of Premier Lounge members' parking benefits. Stay tuned for further details leading up to the program's launch.
Travelers who have a Priority Pass membership and a valid outbound ticket, will have access to “The Lounge” at no additional cost.

Notably, existing Premier Lounge members will be receiving a prorated refund of their membership and will be offered a special COS Membership for "The Lounge", ensuring a seamless transition.
The current Premier Lounge is set to close after the last departure of February 29, 2024.
