America’s fifth busiest airport by passenger traffic will welcome American Express’ premier hospitality amenity in 2019. The financial services company announced their next Centurion Lounge will open at Denver International Airport, growing the number of domestic lounges to 10 by the end of 2019.
Flyers who hold The Platinum Card from American Express will have another lounge available in their domestic travels next year. American Express announced they will open a Centurion Lounge at America’s fifth largest airport by passenger traffic, Denver International Airport (DEN).
The new lounge will be located in the airport’s Concourse C, the smallest of the concourses and furthest away from the main terminal. It will be accessible to all flyers at DEN, regardless of what airline they are flying. The new lounge is scheduled to open in 2019.
According to the financial services company, the decision to build a Centurion Lounge at DEN was based on cardholder data. Airline bookings involving the United Airlines hub through American Express Travel with premium credit cards increased by 36 percent in the past year, suggesting more luxury flyers are among the 61 million who transit through DEN annually.
“Airport lounge access is one of our Platinum Card members’ favorite benefits, with our Card Members’ global lounge visits increasing 30 percent year over year,” Josh McKay, vice president of global benefits and services for American Express, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to share our plans to bring one of our signature Centurion Lounges to the Denver International Airport, as Denver is one of the top airports our premium Card Members travel through.”
The new Centurion Lounge will feature many of the amenities common at all other locations, including scenic views of the runways. Complimentary food and beverage options, shower suites and high-speed internet access will also be available to lounge guests.
When the new lounge opens, American Express will operate 11 Centurion Lounges around the world, for a total of 16 in their Global Lounge Collection. The company will also add a Centurion Lounge to their portfolio at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) early next year, complimenting their current space at LaGuardia Airport (LGA).
