American Express to expand Centurion Lounges in two U.S. airports for health and safety

By Mohamed Dabo

American Express has announced plans to expand Centurion Lounges in two major U.S. airports and prepare to welcome travellers with new health and safety practices.

The US card giant will enlarge two of its signature Centurion Lounges and introduce The Centurion Lounge Commitment, a set of new health and safety protocols and practices, which will be implemented in all Centurion Lounges as they reopen (some starting in early October).

The Centurion Lounge at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) will relocate to a larger location in the brand-new Terminal B, and as previously announced, the current Centurion Lounge at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport (LAS), will be expanded and redesigned.

Upgrading the Centurion Lounge Experience at LAS and LGA:

Renovations to The Centurion Lounges at New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport will be completed in 2021.

The expanded lounges will feature a suite of amenities for Card Members to enjoy when they resume traveling.

  • The Centurion Lounge at LGA will double in size and relocate to a space post-security within the airport’s brand-new, state-of-the-art Terminal B.

The new lounge will feature a family room, additional workspaces, private telephone rooms, and views of the New York City skyline.

  • The footprint of the first-ever Centurion Lounge, opened at LAS in 2013, will be expanded from nearly 9,000 square feet to over 13,400 square feet.

The newly designed lounge will feature additional multi-purpose areas, new private telephone rooms, newly designed reception and workspace areas and more.

American Express is also working towards opening its newest lounge locations later this year in New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, London’s Heathrow Airport and Denver International Airport.

Creating a Healthy and Safe Environment with The Centurion Lounge Commitment:

While our Centurion Lounges continue to be closed due to Covid-19, American Express is introducing The Centurion Lounge Commitment to further support the health and safety of Card Members and colleagues when the lounges reopen.

According to the Amex Trendex, a trend report from American Express, nearly 2 in 3 consumers say either health and safety policies and procedures (39%) or flexibility (25%) is most important as they look to book future travel.
