Access to American Express’ Centurion Lounges is one of the most favored perks of holding The Platinum Card® from American Express, so when a new opening is announced, it’s big news.
The newest addition is set to be constructed at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) — meaning each of New York’s 3 major airport hubs will feature a Centurion Lounge.
The Biggest Yet
At 18,000-square-foot, Newark’s Centurion Lounge will be the largest of all of its locations.
The planned new space will feature as part of a new, 3-story building that will be constructed close to the new Terminal A. Initially, the new terminal will be home to United flights, with Air Canada, American, Delta, and JetBlue set to join later.
The rest of the building is expected to be taken over by the Port Authority — the organization that gave permission for the lounge’s go-ahead in September 2021.
Unfortunately, there’s almost a whole 2 years to wait before the lounge will be officially opened. As it stands, the date to put in your diary is August 1, 2023.
Hot Tip: Centurion Lounge access is granted to those with the Amex Platinum card, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card (when traveling on a Delta flight purchased with your card), Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card (when traveling on a Delta flight purchased with your card), or the Centurion® Card from American Express.
What To Expect From Your New Centurion Lounge
For those who enjoy a spot of plane spotting, Newark’s Centurion Lounge is set to feature an outside terrace area with views over the airport’s airfield, the Port of Newark, both New York and Newark harbors, and, perhaps most exciting of all, the famous Manhattan skyline.
Back inside, guests can expect a choice of several of Amex’s most-loved eateries and bar areas to indulge in before hopping on their flight.
With plans for a piano lounge, a jazz-themed bar, and a cocktail lounge-come-speakeasy, Newark’s Centurion Lounge is set to have you wanting to arrive at the airport well in advance of your flight.
Classic lounge features such as dedicated areas for working and relaxing can also be expected. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but it’s highly likely that it will feature an Equinox Body Lab, similar to the one in Centurion’s New York JFK location.

Though 2 years may seem like a long way off, from what we can expect from Newark’s new Centurion Lounge, it will most certainly be worth the wait.
Elsewhere in the world, the Centurion Lounge at London’s Heathrow Airport is now open.
