Credit Cards which offer Free Airport Lounge Access (updated May 28, 2018)

A few changes to the industry means that this post was due for an update from last time, namely,

  • Now unlimited access on National Bank World MasterCard (now the same as the World Elite version)
  • Addition of Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite Card
  • Addition of Priority Pass access to the American Express Business Platinum Card
