Upflex is partnering with DragonPass to give Upflex users access to 1,100 airport and rail station lounges around the world.
Today, we’re excited to share that Upflex and DragonPass – an end-to-end airport and rail station hospitality experience provider – have launched a first-of-its-kind global partnership that gives Upflex clients on-demand access to 1,100 exclusive airport and rail lounges via Upflex’s global flex space network.
A win for business travelers, workations, and travelers who want convenient access to amenities during their travel experience, Upflex’s network now has airport and rail lounges among its workspace options, with access to amenities like meeting rooms, individual workspaces, teleconference facilities, improved secure WiFi, charging facilities, pools, spas and fitness centers, sleeping spaces – the list goes on.
Founded in 2005, DragonPass is the first all-in-one tech platform out there that offers everything the modern business traveler is after, including lounge access, dining access, and other first-class services.
Originally an airport lounge provider, they’ve grown into a complete, end-to-end provider of airport hospitality via its digital platform. Now, DragonPass’s services cover over 700 airports and rail stations in more than 140 countries across APAC, Central Europe, and North America. Many of those airports have multiple lounges on offer, from Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses to boutique, premium spas and fitness clubs.
“We see our partnership with Upflex as a first step in evolving our collective member offerings,” DragonPass CEO AndrewHarrison-Chinn told the Upflex team recently. “Collaborating with Upflex and their extensive portfolio of shared workspaces allows us to offer customers unparalleled workspace coverage on the move. As an industry leader in crafting premium loyalty benefits, we hope our collaboration with Upflex will provide their members further enjoyment to their travel and working experiences.”
I know that it will. I founded Upflex in 201 with my cofounder, now our CPO Ginger Dhaliwal. Today, global corporations, including Toyota, Willis Towers Watson, and Schneider Electric, and leading tech firms, including Snowflake, Alation, and Gympass, are using our tech and solutions to facilitate their hybrid workplace strategies. Upflex also powers the flex space platforms, including Colliers’s Mobility Pass and Newmark’s Optality.
At the core of that is our space network – and we’re always looking for new ways to make it better, bigger, and wider-reaching. This partnership is evidence of that: It follows last year’s strategic partnership with WeWork to give our members exclusive access to WeWork spaces around the globe, the acquisition of UK space aggregator WorkClub which added 400 handsome coworking locations to our network across some nine different UK cities, and the otherwise consistent growth of the industry- leading global flex space network, adding vetted workspace locations in markets of all sizes around the world to help give every remote and hybrid employee access to a safe, clean, high-quality place to work.
We’re thrilled to be adding these hundreds of airport lounges – and rail station lounges – around the world to the Upflex global network. This new inventory category means travelers on the go to easily find and book a convenient work environment with even fewer boundaries. With the way corporate travel has bounced back post-pandemic, this partnership helps us keep apace with a future of work where flexibility comes first.
