The lounges, exclusively for Delta One business class customers, will open in 2023 in New York followed by the LA facility in 2024
Delta Air Lines is planning two new Delta One Club lounges for New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Los Angeles International. The facilities are exclusively for the airline’s Delta One business class customers.
The JFK facility is scheduled to open in 2023 and will offer some 36,000 square feet located near Concourse B in the airport’s Terminal 4. The airline broke ground on the $1.5 billion terminal project in December, which will also include a new Sky Club in Concourse A.
In 2024, airline is set to open the 10,000-square-foot Delta One Club at LAX, part of the airline’s Terminal 3 project which opened in April. The new Delta One facility will be connected to the 30,000-square-foot Sky Club, one of the largest lounges in the Delta system.
Delta has yet to reveal exact details of the new Delta One lounges, but said, “At both Clubs, visitors can expect a dedicated level of service that elevates the lounge experience for Delta One customers.”
The plans were announced as part of an update on the carrier’s lounge developments, which include a new 600-seat Delta Sky Club set to open in June as part of Delta’s transformed Terminal C at New York’s LaGuardia airport, which completed construction in February with the opening of its second skybridge.
Expanded facilities will be unveiled at Nashville, Boston and Atlanta airports this summer, and a new lounge is also set to open at Chicago O’Hare’s Terminal 5 this fall. The carrier’s Tokyo Haneda Sky Club—which was first announced in 2019 but later put on hold because of the Covid-19 pandemic—is also scheduled to open in August.
“We’re creating best-in-class experiences in our lounges that make every Club a sought-after part of the travel journey,” said Claude Roussel, managing director—Delta Sky Club.
“From working with local artists to incorporating new culinary elements, we continue to look for ways to deliver an experience and an atmosphere that’s widely enjoyed by Delta customers.”
Delta’s lounge update also detailed changes to the Sky Club policies. Beginning June 1, access to the lounges will be restricted to within three hours of scheduled departure, with the exception of connecting passengers and Delta 360 Members / American Express Centurion cardholders.
In addition, Club access will no longer be available for arriving customers, with the exception of Delta One and connecting passengers.
