HSBC to provide Premier World MasterCard® cardmembers VIP security access at JFK Terminal One

New York, NY – An exclusive offering from HSBC Bank USA, N.A. is helping to ease Premier clients and their travelling companions through airport security and en route to their destination more quickly. From April 1 through
June 30, 2011, HSBC Premier World MasterCard® cardmembers will receive complimentary VIP security access allowing entrance to dedicated security checkpoints at John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport’s Terminal One security line.

"The launch of our VIP security access service illustrates HSBC's focus on serving the needs of Premier clients and highlights our position as a marketing innovator," said Kevin Martin, Head of PFS and Marketing at HSBC Bank USA, N.A. "HSBC's Premier clients have a passion for international travel and what we are announcing today will significantly enhance their airport experience."

Using VIP security access couldn't be easier. Premier clients simply present their Premier World MasterCard® card to an attendant at the security checkpoint located in Terminal One between aisles D (Korean Air) and E (Japan Airlines). There are three points of entry, with the middle entry dedicated to first class, business class and VIP ticketholders. For easy identification, a yellow security sign hanging above this checkpoint will indicate VIP entry. Additionally, JFK security personnel will be on location to guide the process for each participating cardmember.
