Delta Air Lines is expected to open a new Sky Club in Las Vegas, a welcome addition to the airport where thousands of passengers transit annually to head into Sin City for shows, good food, conventions, weddings, and more. The Las Vegas Sky Club would be the latest addition to Delta’s Sky Club lounge network and could open as late as 2024.
Why Las Vegas?
Delta has a huge presence at Harry Reid International Airport (LAS). In fact, Delta has 43 flights a day out of the city, and Vegas is one of the largest cities it services that isn’t a hub.
There are just 4 lounges at Las Vegas’ airport, including a Centurion Lounge, The Club at LAS, a United Club, and a USO Lounge. By opening a lounge of its own, Delta is raising the bar over American Airlines (which does not have a lounge in the airport).
Las Vegas is an enormously important airport for airlines — there’s a constant stream of passengers wanting to visit the airport, and while it currently isn’t a hub airport to any legacy airline, each airline carries thousands of passengers daily. Las Vegas flights can bring big revenue to airlines with top-dollar fares during major conventions, such as the annual Consumer Electronics Show.

The new lounge is expected to be 16,500 square feet in size and would be located in the D gates, though the exact location hasn’t fully been revealed. The lounge is anticipated to open in an area that isn’t currently set up as a lounge space, so it will likely occupy a brand new area.
Unfortunately, not many details are available about the lounge and what it will feature, but based upon the amenities of other similar Sky Clubs we can expect:
- Complimentary snacks and beverages
- Ticketing assistance
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Televisions and newspapers
- Sofas and other seats
- Plenty of areas to charge up devices
Like all Delta Sky Clubs, there are a few ways you can enter:

An airline opening up a new lounge is always great news for travelers — this will allow more passengers to be able to access a quiet space before their flight to relax. Las Vegas is a very busy airport for frequent flyers, so having a spot to enjoy a drink and access complimentary internet will be the perfect way to spend time before boarding your flight.
