Washington DC, USA, 2021-Feb-19 — /Travel PR News/ — The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority announced an agreement with American Express to construct and open its 16th Centurion® Lounge at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. This agreement will be administered by MarketPlace Development, the contractor overseeing the concessions program at Reagan National on behalf of the Airports Authority.
“The addition of an American Express Centurion Lounge at Reagan National Airport will serve eligible customers across multiple airlines and give them a place to recharge before and after their flights,” said John E. Potter, president and chief executive officer of the Airports Authority. “When the lounge opens, it will complement the airport’s Project Journey improvements, giving passengers even more options prior to their flight.”
The 11,500-square-foot lounge is expected to open by the end of 2022, following the completion of Project Journey, an airport-improvement and reconfiguration project that will significantly increase post-security space and connectivity between shops, restaurants and multiple airline gates. The Centurion Lounge will be located post-security near Terminal B. Access will be complimentary and exclusive for American Express Platinum Card® Members, Centurion Members and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Card Members.
The lounge will feature signature Centurion Lounge amenities such as a complimentary custom menu of gourmet food and drinks,1 premium restrooms and shower suites, access to high-speed Wi-Fi and noise-buffering workspaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows will offer airfield views, and the design of the lounge will complement the airport’s iconic architecture.
“As passengers book post-COVID pandemic travel, we know that they expect a safe, healthy and clean experience, as well as a unique premium experience in Washington, D.C.’s, airports,” said Jerome L. Davis, executive vice president and chief revenue officer for the Airports Authority. “Through close coordination between the Airports Authority and American Express, we are bringing eligible passengers an enhanced experience at the airport’s first non-airline lounge.”
The Centurion Lounge joins other airline lounges at Reagan National airport, including two American Airlines Admirals Clubs, a Delta Sky Club and a United Airlines United Club.
