American Express cardholders with access to Centurion Lounges may well be happy to know that AMEX has teamed up with MAG USA, a company specializing in commercial airport solutions, to roll out two new lounges. The Centurion Lounge and the Escape Lounge will be setting up shop in Terminal 4 at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). They are expected to go live over the course of the coming months.
As usual cardholders with the American Express Platinum Card, as well as Centurion Members will get into the two new lounges for free because they will be part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection. Excitement is on high for both companies about their partnership and the lounges. “We are excited to partner with MAG USA to bring our Platinum Card and Centurion Members two incredible lounge spaces to visit when they travel through the Phoenix airport,” said Chris Cracchiolo, SVP, Global Loyalty & Benefits at American Express.
“As Phoenix is a popular travel hub for Card Members, and home to one of the largest American Express offices in the U.S., The Centurion Lounge and Escape Lounge in Phoenix Sky Harbor airport will be the perfect additions to the Global Lounge Collection,” added Cracchiolo.
