Finally, John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) has a lounge. I’m so excited to share this news because this is my home airport and I visit it quite often.
Here are all the exciting details about the first airport lounge in Columbus, Ohio.
Columbus’ First Airport Lounge Is Open
There’s a new lounge at John Glenn Columbus International Airport. The Escape Lounge – A Centurion Studio Partner has the honor of being this airport’s first lounge, something it has needed for years.
The neutral decor is inspired by the popular Columbus neighborhoods of German Village and Victorian Village. The amenities are designed to help travelers relax and recharge before their flight and include:
- Charging ports at every seat
- Complimentary food and beverages
- Digital library with over 7,000 options
- Kids’ activity packs
- Premium high-speed Wi-Fi
- Private workspaces
- Separate dining area
The food and beverages were curated by Chef Colin Smith with help from local chef Avishar Barua who owns Joya in Worthington, Ohio, and has a new restaurant opening soon in the city’s trendy Brewery District. The seasonally-inspired menu includes items like apple raisin french toast, a creamy brie turkey baguette, and pumpkin spice cake.
Complimentary beverages include select spirits, wines, and beers. Premium liquors and cocktails are available for an extra charge.
Lounge Location and Hours
The Escape Lounge – The Centurion Studio Partner at CMH is located in Concourse B near gate 32. Since the Columbus airport is relatively small, the lounge is easy to access even if your flight is leaving from a different concourse.
The lounge is open daily from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Escape Lounge – The Centurion Studio Partner in Columbus is accessible to any passenger regardless of airline, status, or class of ticket for a walk-up fee of $45. Travelers can save $5 by prebooking at least 24 hours ahead of time.
Access is complimentary for anyone who holds The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, or Centurion® Card from American Express. Cardholders may bring up to 2 guests inside the lounge with them for no additional charge.
Those who have a Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card can access the lounge for free when flying on Delta, though no guests are included.
Children under 2 years old are always free.
This lounge is an overdue addition to the rapidly growing Columbus International Airport. This location is part of an expanding list of new Escape Lounges – The Centurion Studio Partner that are popping up in smaller market airports, including Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Oakland International Airport (OAK).
The information regarding the Centurion® Card from American Express was independently collected by Upgraded Points and was not provided nor reviewed by the issuer.
