is the Co-Chief Executive Officer of PS, formerly known as The Private Suite. PS is a TPG-backed company that owns and operates exclusive, luxury airport terminals for commercial travel geared toward the sophisticated traveler who enjoys being completely taken care of as well as celebrities wishing for a more private airport experience. The first PS terminal is located at Los Angeles International Airport, with plans to expand to New York, Miami and other cities.
What exactly is P/S?
PS is the airport experience, without ever stepping into the actual airport. With luxury hospitality at the forefront of our service and design philosophy, PS is a private terminal away from the hustle and bustle of LAX, offering seamless security screenings and a safe, easy travel experience. Upon landing at LAX, travelers are greeted at the aircraft door by a PS Agent and escorted directly from the airfield to PS where they await their luggage in a private suite. When departing LAX, travelers can make use of our many culinary, wellness and entertainment offerings in their private suite before their flight. When ready, guests go through private TSA before getting escorted in a private BMW across the airfield to their commercial flight. We also have customs in our terminal for international arrivals.
Is it membership only?
No, members and non-members alike can use PS, and anyone can become a member. Membership comes with exclusive benefits and preferred pricing.
Is it only part of commercial flights domestic and international?
PS offers the private jet experience off all commercial flights, whether they be domestic or international.
Who is your main demographic?
There is a perception that PS is exclusively for public figures seeking privacy. It is not! While a third of our guests are public figures, the majority are businessmen and businesswomen, CEOs, high net worth visitors and their families, etc. More than half of our users are flying Internationally, and most of them live or have homes in LA.
Are dogs allowed in waiting area?
PS is pet-friendly! When you reserve, you can note that you’ll be traveling with your pet(s) and we can ensure your suite is prepared for all your furry friends’ needs.
What are the amenities?
Once you’re inside the terminal, all travelers have access to delicious cuisine options, and as of this summer, guests will have access to a new culinary concept we’re launching in partnership with renowned LA-based hospitality company, The h.wood Group. Travelers also have access to indoor and outdoor lounges and a selection of entertainment offerings. We also offer spa and salon services, such as haircuts, manicures, pedicures and massages (which are limited due to Covid-19 and available upon request). Our member services team is available 24/7 to help ensure the experience is seamless so if that means a special snack, birthday decorations, children’s toys, or a yoga flow with our partner Alo Yoga – we have it covered! You can even purchase the art on display in the suites, which has been specially curated by Creative Art Partners.
What other airports will this service be available in?
Our plans for expansion are constantly evolving, but New York and Miami are on our radar as we continue to grow our presence with new locations. In the meantime, we have big things happening at PS LAX; the interior redesign of the twelve suites with designer Cliff Fong is well under way and there are a lot of new elements of PS being unraveled as soon as this summer and throughout the year.
