American Express Platinum cardholders and Centurion members passing through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will be able to chill out at the new Centurion Lounge starting in 2019. The design of the new lounge will include a tranquility area, family room, visual wall installations and a spa, along with all the usual bells and whistles cardholders expect to find at Centurion Lounges.
The Centurion Lounge is being built in the Tom Bradley International Terminal, right after security, and it can be accessed via Terminals 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. This is the twelfth Centurion Lounge launched by American Express.
“On the heels of announcements that we will be bringing new Centurion Lounges to New York and Denver, we are thrilled to open our next lounge in Los Angeles, the #2 U.S. airport our Platinum Card Members travel through,” said Josh McKay, vice president and general manager, Global Benefits and Services, American Express.
“Our Platinum Card Members regularly travel for work and fun, so we’re excited to soon offer our Platinum Card Members a place to relax, reboot and refresh in the busiest terminal at LAX,” he added.
New tranquility area and more
American Express is also adding a new addition to the LAX-based Centurion Lounge—an enhanced tranquility area providing travelers with brightly-lit areas as well as dimly-lit ones so they can adjust to their new time zone more easily.
Those looking for some pampering will be able to take advantage of the spa. The lounge will also include:
- A kid and adult-friendly family room
- Enhanced workspace
- High-speed Wi-Fi
- First-rate restrooms and showers
- Private noise-buffering workstations
If travelers are hungry, they can also take advantage of free chef-created menus, as well as premium wines and specialty cocktails curated by mixologist Jim Meehan and Anthony Giglio. If cardholders and members need some help while traveling they can also check in with American Express Member Services Professionals.
Individuals who are Platinum cardholders or Centurion members can get into Centurion lounges for free, and they can bring two friends or family members along as well.
Along with the new Centurion Lounge, American Express is also becoming a Brand Sponsor at LAX, which means they will be running promotion programs designed by JCDecaux.
“Creating new and fresh experiences at the airport is a key element of our vision to deliver a gold standard airport at LAX and we are pleased to work with American Express to add the Centurion Lounge to the Tom Bradley International Terminal, ” said Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint.”
