The Priority Pass program is a network of airport lounges (and, more recently, restaurants, bars, and even day suites) that allow access to members of the program. They can be airline lounges or locations with no airline affiliation.
The priority pass program has been around for about 25 years. We visited a lounge in Japan with our friend Steve, who had a membership, when we visited there in 2005. At the time, lounges didn’t sell day passes, as access to these rooms were seen as an exclusive perk for frequent flyers. Today, the airlines see membership to the lounges and access to them as another way to generate extra revenue.
Here’s a description of Priority Pass from their website:
