In a commitment to supporting Hong Kong, China athletes, Collinson will be providing one-year complimentary Priority Pass digital memberships with four complimentary airport lounge and travel experiences visits per membership for the athletes of SF&OC National Sports Associations (NSAs). Present to witness the agreement signing were Timothy Fok, President of SF&OC, Edgar Yang, Honorary Secretary General of SF&OC, Dr. Brian Stevenson, Chef de Mission of the Hong Kong, China Delegation to Paris 2024 and Vice-President of SF&OC; and Todd Handcock, Global Chief Commercial Officer and Asia Pacific President, Collinson; and Ian Lee, Managing Director, North Asia, Collinson.

"The development of sport in Hong Kong SAR has come a long way, witnessing remarkable achievements in both regional and international competitions; in particular, the recent historic wins at the Hangzhou 19th Asian Games. To further encourage this success, we are extremely proud to partner with SF&OC to support their athletes heading to Paris," said Todd Handcock, Global Chief Commercial Officer and Asia Pacific President, Collinson. "As athletes are increasingly required to travel internationally, it often results in travel fatigue and jet lag[1]. By providing them with access to Priority Pass airport lounges and travel experiences globally, we hope that they can "switch off", enjoy a better rest before their flights and arrive at their destinations feeling more refreshed and focused on achieving their best on the world stage."

Collinson's sponsorship of the Priority Pass memberships will see the athletes of NSAs attempting to qualify for Paris 2024 gaining access to more than 1,500 airport lounges and travel experiences in over 700 airports across 145 countries. These NSAs include archery, swimming, athletics, badminton, boxing, canoe, cycling, fencing, golf, gymnastics, judo, rowing, rugby, sailing, windsurfing, shooting, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis and triathlon.

According to Priority Pass' recent global research, 58% of respondents from Hong Kong SAR believe that visiting an airport lounge helps them to switch off when travelling. With Collinson being the Official Airport Lounge Partner, the athletes can look forward to a more relaxed experience when they travel for competitions. On top of the Priority Pass digital memberships provided to the athletes striving to qualify for the Games, Collinson will provide additional Priority Pass Prestige memberships to the Hong Kong, China Delegation to Paris 2024. The Prestige membership comes with complimentary, unlimited visits to Priority Pass airport lounges for one year.

Timothy Fok, President of SF&OC, said, "We are very thankful to Collinson for their dedication and support towards our athletes who are preparing for their next milestone at Paris 2024. We are confident that the seamless travel experience will help alleviate travel-related fatigue and stress, allowing our athletes to be well rested and be in their best form wherever they travel to compete."
