Atlanta Is Getting an Amex Centurion Lounge
American Express announced last summer that they would be opening a Centurion Lounge in Atlanta but today they announced more details about the upcoming lounge. It will be 26,000 Square Feet and the largest Centurion Lounge yet. It will feature a number of brand new amenities, such as –
- Multiple outdoor areas, including a garden terrace inspired by the city’s rich tree canopy and open tarmac views, a first for a Centurion Lounge
- Modern design influenced by Atlanta’s local landscape and culture
- Locally inspired beverage and dining selections, including a modern bourbon bar, curated by a local chef and Centurion Lounge mixologist, Jim Meehan
- Additional local and unique amenities specific to the Centurion Lounge in Atlanta that will be announced closer to opening
The only way to access American Express Centurion Lounges is to be a cardholder of the following cards
- The American Express Platinum Card
- The American Express Centurion Card
- The American Express Business Platinum Card
- Platinum Card Authorized Users ($175 for 3 Cards)
It was announced that it will be located in Concourse E. My preference would be for it to be in Concourse T, A or B. My dilemma is if I am flying out of Concourse T, A or B, it might take me 10 minutes to get to Concourse E. I try to make sure I get to the airport early enough to spend time in the lounge but it would be great to go through security and go right to the lounge. I have access to the American Airlines Admirals Club when I am flying on American, thanks to the Citi AA World Elite Card (Apply Here) which is located in Concourse T right after security.
This is going to change my approach to booking flights. I am an American Express Platinum cardholder and I am able to access the Nine (Yes, there are Nine (9) Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta) Delta Sky Clubs in home airport of Atlanta. Since it is a requirement to be flying on Delta to access their lounges, I will consider booking flights on other airlines if they offer a more competitive price in the future since I can be flying on any airline to access the Centurion Lounge.
I am excited to see this lounge open although I am not thrilled with its location in the airport, I will make sure I have time to make it there. I could potentially save money as I will now consider cheaper flights on other airlines that I would have previously avoided because I wouldn’t have been able to access a lounge. American Express does not sell single visit lounge passes. The only way to access it is by being a cardholder of one of three cards, the one I would suggest is the Platinum Card, apply with my referral link HERE
