American Express To Open Centurion Lounge At Los Angeles LAX In 2019

American Express Centurion LoungeAmerican Express has announced that it plans to open its twelfth airport Centurion Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in 2019.

What’s so special about LAX and why do they get a new lounge? According to American Express, LAX sees 84.5 million passengers passing through annually, making it the second-busiest airport in the U.S. and one of the busiest in the world overall. Tom Bradley International Terminal is the busiest terminal at the airport, making it a likely fit for the Centurion Lounge, which is open to certain American Express premium cardholders rather than passengers of a single airline like traditional airport lounges.

Premium and Centurion AMEX cardholder? Then you have access. Premium cardholders can enter with up to two travel companions at no additional fee while Centurion cardholders can enter with their immediate family or up to two travel companions. Additional guests are $50 per person.

“Creating new and fresh experiences at the airport is a key element of our vision to deliver a gold standard 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. The 13,900 square foot lounge will feature all the regular amenities – complimentary food and bar menus, premium restrooms and showers, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access, and dedicated workspaces. New features include a “tranquility area,” which will have both brightly lit and dim areas meant to help travelers adjust to new time zones. There will also be a spa, family room, and a bar serving wine and craft cocktails curated by a sommelier and mixologist. American Express Membership Services Professionals will be on hand to provide card-related and travel-related services.
