VIP One operates a landside departure lounge in JFK’s Terminal 1 that offers expedited TSA security access. It’s located behind counter E/F.

VIP One’s lounge and services are typically used by people that don’t want to wait in Terminal 1’s notoriously long security lines. But until now, you had to cough up $45 per person to use their services.

However, Priority Pass now gives free access for members and guests to use VIP One’s lounge and expedited security services!

You can view which credit cards come with Priority Pass access in this post.

Will you take advantage of this new Priority Pass option?

I used it a few years ago when it was still $15, this is great news!

Great news until it gets flooded

Thanks. This was helpful.

I assume this counts as a lounge and not an ‘experience’ for Amex and C1 purposes?

Tired of Long Lines

Can one go through security in Terminal 1 and transfer to another terminal (eg. terminal 4)?




Do you still get TSA precheck benefits in the expedited line? And how does this line compare to the precheck line?
