Delta is the first U.S. airline to open an airline lounge at Tokyo’s Haneda airport (HND), though the timing is quite odd thanks to lingering pandemic restrictions. The Delta Sky Club will be open to members, premium cabin customers, select Amex cardholders, and select elite status passengers.

Why Tokyo Haneda?

All of Delta’s flights arrive at Haneda, and while Delta will be the first U.S. airline to open a lounge there, most airlines operate a lounge or have an agreement with a partner to operate a lounge at the somewhat nearby Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT). Haneda is the more centrally located of the 2 airports, taking far less time to get there by public transit from the downtown area.

The lounge was actually originally scheduled to open 2 years ago, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the opening was delayed until now. Oddly enough, the lounge has opened even in the midst of tough restrictions in the region, though it’s hopeful that additional flights will resume over the coming months. Once the pandemic fully subsides and travel returns to the area, the lounge is expected to be quite busy.

“We’ve been looking forward to this day for years,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director – Delta Sky Club. “Bringing the signature Delta Sky Club experience to Haneda as we continue to grow our network of premium, one-of-a-kind lounges is a huge moment for our Asia-Pacific partners, and all future Haneda Club customers.”

Delta Sky Club Haneda

The lounge is over 9,000 square feet, and features some unique amenities:

  • A full-service bar, offering usual bar favorites but also local sake
  • Made-to-order noodle bar, which will be staffed by a chef
  • Hot and cold buffet, offering local and international dishes

In addition, the lounge will offer private seating, complimentary Wi-Fi, power outlets at almost every seat, and also 5 individual shower suites. These shower suites will be available first-come, first-served.

Throughout the lounge, you’ll see various Japanese works of art, as well as stunning views of Mount Fuji. The newly-opened lounge looks stunning and will be a crown jewel for Delta’s lounge concept outside of the U.S.

Access

To gain access to the lounge, you need to be:

*Effective 2/1/25, Reserve Card Members will receive 15 Visits per year to the Delta Sky Club; to earn an unlimited number of Visits each year starting on 2/1/25, the total eligible purchases on the Card must equal $75,000 or more between 1/1/24 and 12/31/24, and each calendar year thereafter.

You can use the lounge when traveling on Delta or any one of Delta’s partners (though the previously mentioned Amex cardholders must be on a same-day Delta flight).

Final Thoughts

The new Delta Sky Club at Tokyo Haneda will be a great place to relax before your flight, and by having this lounge at Haneda, it will provide an incentive to fly out of a much closer airport to the central Tokyo business district. Delta Sky Club members will have access, so there is likely going to be a lot of usage for passengers on departing flights.
