LAX Delta Sky Club Gets the Hollywood Treatment with Outdoor Terrace and Private Booths

June 30, 2022

Delta is Los Angeles International Airport’s largest global carrier, so it was only fitting that the airline’s new Sky Club at LAX should receive the Hollywood treatment.  Delta’s largest lounge to date, this Sky Club at the confluence of Terminals 2 and 3 is part of a $2.3 billion upgrade of Delta’s facilities at LAX. The overhaul includes 32 enhanced self-service kiosks, a 250-foot digital wall with information in both English and Spanish, seven new security lanes, and a consolidated security, check-in and baggage-claim area.

Premium amenities are at the heart of the renovation. The 30,000-square-foot club allows passengers to quite literally step into the light, basking in the California sunshine as they take in views of the Santa Monica Mountains. A year-round outdoor terrace is a prime location for sipping, dining and enjoying preflight relaxation, while the signature Coffee Grotto offers comfortable seating surrounded by a stunning glass mural composed of tiles imported from Italy. Meanwhile, phone-booth-style compartments allow guests to work or make calls in privacy.

Delta continues to champion Los Angeles talent through its art and culinary initiatives. A curated selection of digital creations, sculptures and large-scale mixed media works by emerging artists is displayed at The Gallery at LAX and throughout the terminal. Delta’s Local Flavor program showcases L.A.’s vibrant culinary community, with noted chefs highlighting regional ingredients in a quarterly rotation. Currently featured is Akira Back, whose creative interpretations of Asian cuisine with American influences have earned a Michelin star. Seating more than 500 members comfortably, the new Delta Sky Club promises a heavenly respite as passengers travel through the City of Angels.
