Chase is pushing further into the airport lounge space by announcing a plan to open at Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport (LAS).
There aren’t a ton of details available yet, but here’s a look at what we do know so far!
Chase Sapphire Lounge Coming to LAS
Chase has won a bid to build a new lounge at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, though the construction timeline is unknown.
The lounge is expected to be approximately 4,500 square feet and is being built by the same company that operates The Club, the family of airport lounges located in airports like Atlanta (ATL), Baltimore (BWI), Seattle (SEA), and more.
Chase already has 5 lounges in the works, with 4 in the U.S. and 1 in Hong Kong. These include:
Chase has been tight-lipped when it comes to details about its lounges, none of which have opened yet.
The Boston lounge is expected to have a shower area and business center and should be around 12,000 square feet. The Phoenix lounge is slated to open this summer, while the San Diego lounge is scheduled to open in the fall of 2023. Very little is known about the spaces in Hong Kong and New York.
The new Chase lounge will join a crowded lineup. Las Vegas’ airport has 6 lounges — including a Centurion Lounge available to those who hold select premium American Express cards, a United Club, and 2 outposts of The Club, which Priority Pass members can access for free.
Right now, we don’t know which Chase cards will grant access to the Sapphire Lounge. However, Priority Pass cardholders will have access to Chase Sapphire Lounges. This could, in theory, mean those who get their Priority Pass membership through an American Express card could potentially have access to Chase’s lounges, though it seems unlikely this would end up being the case.

We certainly wish we had more information surrounding opening dates, amenities, access, and more, but news of a Las Vegas Sapphire Lounge is pretty great.
With American Express, Capital One, and Chase all working to expand their lounge networks, now is a great time to be a premium cardholder as soon there will be more options than ever for pre-flight relaxation.
