Amex announces new Centurion lounges in Hong Kong and Philadelphia
According to Forbes, American Express is opening two new Centurion lounges in Hong Kong and Philadelphia. If you aren’t familiar with Amex’s line of Centurion Lounges they are accessible free of charge by Platinum and Centurion ( Black Card) cardholders. I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed my time spent at the Centurion lounges in Miami, SFO, and Dallas.
Here is the current line-up of Centurion Lounges:
There is a pop lounge currently at LAX and Amex has intimated the real lounge should be open sooner than later…
Here are the details from Forbes:
Today Amex announced the addition of two new locations, including the first ever built from scratch international Centurion Lounge, in Terminal 1 of the Hong Kong International Airport. The other will be in Terminal A West of the Philadelphia International Airport, and both are scheduled for the third quarter of this year. In the coming months, the existing Seattle-Tacoma International Airport lounge, which was the smallest, will be significantly expanded.
- The Hong Kong lounge will measure roughly 8000 sqft
- Philly will measure roughly 6300 sqft
Additionally Larry Olmsted, who penned the Forbes article details some info on the Seattle lounge as well
Seattle has also seen significant growth as a destination for premium card members, with a twelve percent past year increase. The lounge, which was a special mini-version of the concept without showers and some of the other amenities, will be expanded by about 50% and upgraded to full size standards, with a new bar, private shower suite, expanded seating and more.
