NYC’s JFK Airport To Get New American Express Centurion Lounge
31 Jan
American Express cardholders going through New York’s JFK airport are in for a treat in 2019. The credit card giant has announced that they will open the largest-yet location of their Centurion Lounge series of luxury airport lounges at JFK’s Terminal 4. This is one of the busiest airport terminals in the United States, accommodating over 21 million travelers each year. The lounge will cover more than 15,000 square feet and occupy two levels.

Centurion Lounges feature things like complimentary food and beverage menus, luxury restrooms and shower suites, access to high-speed Wi-Fi, quiet meeting rooms, workspaces, comfortable seating, playrooms, and even spas. It’s the perfect spot to catch a nap, charge your laptop, get some work done, and grab a bite to eat or a drink when you’re waiting for a flight or have a layover. The newest Centurion Lounge will have special features that are slated to be revealed closer to the date of its opening, and will feature one-of-a-kind design elements and a stunning view of the airfield.

Josh McKay, vice president and general manager of global benefits and services at American Express, said the company is excited to be working on the new Centurion Lounge. “We aim to elevate our card members’ travel experiences and our industry-leading lounge program is one of our card members’ favorite ways we do this.”

Only American Express Platinum Card members and Centurion members have access to the swanky lounges, and admission is free for these cardholders. Platinum Card members may bring up to two additional travel companions with them at no charge, and Centurion members can bring either their immediate families or up to two fellow travelers. Both Platinum and Centurion members can purchase additional guest access to $50 per person.

Other Centurion Lounges are located in New York’s LaGuardia Airport, Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Miami International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Houston’s George Bush International Airport, Hong Kong International Airport, and Philadelphia International Airport.

American Express Platinum and Centurion cards are among the most elite on the market, offering outstanding customer benefits and high value rewards. For business travelers as well as pleasure travelers, the perks of being an American Express cardholder are many.
