Delta Opens Latest Sky Club at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International

The impressive space is part of an ambitious, $153 million terminal makeover

Delta opened its new Sky Club lounge at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport (FLL) last week as part of a $153 million modernization project in the airport’s Terminal 2. That grand multi-year modernization enterprise is now nearing completion. To debut this fall will be a 33,000 square-foot terminal expansion with new waiting areas and seating, more dining and shopping options, and security checkpoint enhancements, among other upgrades.

Passengers heading to this Delta Sky Club will be greeted by soaring floor-to-ceiling windows with runway views, well-considered interior details, regional artwork and a convenient central mezzanine-level location.

The Club is one of the first Delta Sky Club locations to be safely reintroducing the lounge’s signature hot food offerings following a suspension of those options during the long pandemic lockdown. The fare, targeting fresh and healthy choices,  includes breakfast favorites, regional specialties and an all-day selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, quick snacks and indulgent desserts. The Club’s beverage program brings a rotating selection of seasonal, premium cocktails from the bar.

Naturally, for now, a continued mask requirement is in effect. Delta Sky Clubs continue to wipe down high-touch areas, offer hand sanitizer dispensers and require employees (and guests) to wear at all times, in accordance with federal law. Clubs will also supply gloves as an optional layer of protection for guests at self-serve food stations.

“This much-anticipated opening of our beautiful new Delta Sky Club is the latest investment we are making for our loyal guests,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director – Delta Sky Club. “Guests can expect all of our services and amenities to be delivered with the utmost care, including hot menu selections as we safely reopen our self-serve food stations in all Clubs throughout the year.”

With the opening of the Fort Lauderdale Club, all of Delta’s Clubs will be reopened by the end of June. From Ft. Lauderdale, South Florida travelers can catch one of Delta’s 32 average daily departures from Fort Lauderdale to 10 cities, including eight Delta stations that offer onward connections: Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Detroit, New York-JFK, New York-LaGuardia, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Raleigh Durham, Salt Lake City and new daily service to Los Angeles.

Delta is set to open a new Sky Club at Tokyo’s Haneda International airport later this year, followed by lounges at Los Angeles International and New York’s LaGuardia in 2022.
