Before you jet away in excitement, don’t forget to take advantage of amaze travel benefits – like free global data roaming packages, global cashback offers, access to a lounge in case of travel delays. That way your overseas holiday is happy-go-lucky and not one of regrets!

With Mastercard® Flight Delay Pass, waiting for a delayed flight can be a cause for celebration!

And if you have travelled with someone else (lucky you!), rest assured that your companion(s) can join in on the fun. With Flight Delay Pass, those dreaded delays don’t look so bad after all. 

Here’s how you can kick start before the delay happens:  

  • Register your flight with the Mastercard Flight Delay Pass service with your amaze card number before travelling. 
  • Should the airline announce a delay that meets or exceeds 120 minutes, you will receive a LoungeKey™ pass via SMS that provides access to a lounge at the airport where you are delayed. 

At the lounge, you/your travel companion(s) may choose to present either the QR code in the PDF or the SMS code for entry worldwide.
