Delta’s airport lounge experience for some passengers is about to get a glow up.

The airline has announced that it will be opening 2 Delta One lounges that will be reserved exclusively for those flying in Delta One (business class).

For some, the news should soften the blow of the recently-announced time limit on Delta Sky Club lounge access.

Let’s take a look at the details we have so far and what this means for you.

Delta Confirms New Delta One Lounges

The first 2 lucky airports to get the exclusive new lounges will be New York (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX), with lounges expected to open in 2023 and 2024, respectively.

Given the importance of these gateways to the U.S. and as major East and West Coast hubs for Delta, it’s no surprise they were at the top of Delta’s list.

Delta One lounges are expected to take the Delta One passenger ground experience to the next level with enhanced service and a more premium environment and offering.

And by Delta One passenger, that is likely to mean anyone holding a Delta One (business class) ticket traveling on all international long-haul, premium transcontinental, and some international short-haul flights.

This is great news for frequent Delta flyers as far fewer travelers will be eligible for access to the new Delta One lounges. As it stands, Delta’s Sky Club lounges — the airline’s current most premium lounge offering — accept a lot of different guests, including SkyTeam elite members and select credit cardholders. This can make for a very crowded lounge experience, especially at peak times.

As for exactly what we can expect from inside the lounges, we’ll have to wait until more details are released.

Hot Tip: Delta has over 30 Sky Clubs across the U.S. You can expect a bunch of perks including free Wi-Fi and a selection of food and drink options — including free alcohol. We put together this detailed guide explaining everything you need to know about Delta Sky Clubs, from locations to amenities to opening times and eligibility.

More Delta Sky Clubs Coming Soon

In addition to the new lounge offering, Delta is further increasing Sky Club capacity by opening new locations and extending some existing lounges.

“We’re creating best-in-class experiences in our lounges that make every Club a sought-after part of the travel journey,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director at Delta Sky Club.

The next Sky Club to open its doors in June will be the brand new Sky Club in Delta’s swanky new Terminal C at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA). In the fall, we can expect the opening of a new Sky Club in Terminal 5 in Chicago (ORD), and then later in 2024, the first-ever Sky Club is set to open in Las Vegas (LAS).

Elsewhere, expanded existing Sky Clubs in Atlanta (ATL), Boston (BOS), and Nashville (BNE) are set to be revealed this summer.

Final Thoughts

Delta Air Lines is making an effort to reduce the number of passengers in its lounges by giving its Delta One passengers an exclusive new space in LAX and JFK — that’s a win-win situation in our book.

While we’ll have to wait until at least 2023 to check out the new spaces, we can look forward to a slew of new Sky Club lounge openings in the meantime.
