Private car service Blacklane is expanding its offerings to let customers skip security and immigration lines and gain access to lounges at airports.
Blacklane PASS (Premium Airport Services and Solutions) will
provide customers concierge-assisted arrival, connection and departure services at more than 500 airports around the world.
At arrival, a concierge will greet travelers plane-side
or at customs (depending on the airport), take them to the front of customs and
immigration lines, assist with luggage and escort them to their vehicle.
For departures, Blacklane will send a concierge to meet
travelers at their vehicle, bypass security and immigration lines, assist with VAT
refunds and escort travelers to their gate.

With PASS, customers can also purchase pay-as-you-go airport lounge access for $50 per person. The passes allow for three hours in an airline or private lounge with amenities, including food, drinks and Wi-Fi.

As local chauffeurs add more qualifying vehicles to their
fleets, Blacklane will extend Green Class to new cities.
“We welcome battery-electric chauffeur-quality vehicles from
all premium automakers to our fleet,” Wohltorf says.
“Supporting business and leisure travelers with green travel
options is essential to a healthy planet. We are proud to combine zero
emissions with the vehicle comfort, quiet and performance that passengers
