Cardholders of American Express's Platinum and Centurion Cards could now enjoy benefits and expanded hospitality in the US Airways Clubs found in thirteen cities, all thanks to a partnership between the two companies. This collaboration expands the American Express Airport Club Access Program, which allows qualifying card members to enjoy and access the club locations regardless which airline they have taken that day.
For card members to access a branch of the US Airways Club, they just need to use their Platinum or Centurion Card and a ID issued by the government to present their club representative. Family and friends could accompany the cardholder in the lounges at the airport and there would be no additional charges for them, only as long as there would only be two travelling companions with the card member.
US Airways Clubs are accessible in the airports in these cities: Boston, Buffalo, Charlotte (two clubs are available here), Greensboro, Hartford/Springfield, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia (two clubs are available here), Phoenix (three clubs are available here), Pittsburgh, Raleigh/Durham, Tampa, and Washington.
Vice President of the Platinum and Centurion product Management, Ayesha Almeida, stated that their company would try to make their card members to feel special during their flights using the popular Airport Club Access Program and its benefits to do that. Almeida also added that card members, especially those who love to travel, would enjoy the airport experience with the program. Almeida also added that the addition of the US Airways to the program is a valuable reason for carrying the Platinum or Centurion Card while travelling.
US Airways Director, Fernand Fernandez, stated that the cardholders of the american express cards are perfect for the US Airways Club. With the seventeen US Airways Clubs available in over thirteen cities, premium Platinum or Centurion cardholders would find respite from the busy throngs of the airport with the club's personalized services and complimentary amenities.
The Airport Club Access Program also allows its card members to access other airline clubs such as the American Airline Admirals Club, the Delta Sky Club, and the Continental Airlines Presidents Club. Card members could take advantage of accessing these clubs by showing their card, an I.D. issued by the government, and a valid ticket of a flight on the same day that they are travelling on the one of particular airlines.
The many services that US Airways Clubs offers to the card members include having complimentary T-Mobile Hotspot-powered WIFI, cable television, newspapers, reservation assistance, and business workstations. Refreshments are also available in the form of snacks, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages.
The US Airways operates in over 200 communities in the United States and serves the people in them, operating over more than 3, 200 flights each day.
