American Express and Capital One are not the only credit card issuers with their own airport lounges. Chase joined the business with its first airport lounge in Hong Kong in 2022 and is eager to open more airport lounges in several U.S. airports.
Chase collaborates with Airport Dimensions, the operator behind The Club Airport Lounges, to offer travelers the comfort of Chase Sapphire Lounges by The Club. Currently, there are two active Chase airport lounges. The one, Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club, is in Hong Kong International Airport, and the other one - recently opened Sapphire Terrace - is in Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Chase also plans to open seven more additional lounges sometime in 2023 in the following airports: Boston Logan International Airport, Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport, New York LaGuardia Airport, Philadelphia International Airport, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, San Diego International Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport.
To access any Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club, you don't have to be a Chase Sapphire Reserve® cardholder. You can access lounges if you have a membership with Lounge Key or Priority Pass™. For example, the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card offers Priority Pass Lounge access, which means you can get access to Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club with this credit card.
The Sapphire Terrace is positioned a bit differently - Chase doesn't call it a "lounge", but "experience". It is described as an outdoor-indoor space in the airport to relax, recharge and fuel up before flights. The Sapphire Terrace is not a part of Priority Pass. The access to this space will be granted exclusively to those with the Chase Sapphire Reserve card. Cardholders will get complementary access to the Sapphire Terrace and can bring two guests for free.
For many years, Amex with its Centurion Lounges was the only issuer to run lounge spaces. But now Capital One and Chase are joining the suite and look rather promising.
