Delta Air Lines had ambitious plans to open 5 new airport lounges this year — and the airline’s done exactly that. It has just opened the doors to its new Sky Club at Newark Liberty International Airport’s (EWR) Terminal A.

But that’s not all — we’ve known for some time that Delta will be opening premium, dedicated business class lounges in New York (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX) next year, but as reported by The Points Guy, the Atlanta-based carrier plans to open a third outpost of this still-unnamed lounge concept in Boston (BOS).

Here’s what you can expect from Delta Air Lines’ newest Sky Clubs.

Newark Terminal A Sky Club

Delta moved its operations to the new Terminal A at Newark on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, and with that move came the opening of a brand-new Sky Club for eligible passengers passing through Newark.

At over 7,000 square feet, this lounge can seat more than 200 people. The open-air club features views of the newly built Terminal A as well as the airfield.

Like other Sky Clubs, this location was inspired by its locale — in this case, designers drew on Newark’s history as a center for manufacturing, leather tanneries, and breweries. It also features an acoustic sound system that will provide a reprieve from the noise of the surrounding terminal.

A premium bar, beverage station, and buffet are available as well as 4 all-gender restrooms. Amenity zones will also be located throughout the lounge for mobile work.

Delta Premium Lounges Coming Soon

Delta first officially announced its premium lounge concept in the spring of 2022. The original timeline had the first lounge opening in 2023. However, it looks like the first Delta premium lounge will open in 2024 in New York, followed by Los Angeles, and then Boston.

As mentioned above, these lounges will be reserved for passengers flying in the premium cabin, and they don’t yet have a name, as confirmed by Claude Roussel, Delta’s Managing Director for Sky Clubs, in an interview with The Points Guy. He did, however, say that they will not be called Delta One Lounges, as previously speculated.

In the same interview, Roussel shared that there would be further changes coming to the access policies for Sky Clubs, despite the airline having taken several steps already to reduce crowding throughout its network of lounges. These include the change that resulted in only Medallion elite members being able to purchase Sky Club memberships. Passengers with an eligible credit card can still access Delta Sky Clubs when flying with the airline.

We don’t have details at this point as to what these changes will be, but we should learn more in the coming weeks and months.

Final Thoughts

Delta flyers in the New York City area should be excited to have a new space to utilize at Newark Airport — including a brand-new Sky Club for eligible passengers.

And Delta passengers — especially those who fly up front — have even more to look forward to with the opening of the airline’s first dedicated premium lounge in New York next year.
