Delta flyers from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) now have even more space to relax in luxury and comfort before their flights.
Tuesday, December 8, 2021, saw the grand opening of the Michigan airport’s fifth Delta Sky Club lounge — just in time for the holiday travel season.
“The opening of a fifth Delta Sky Club in Detroit demonstrates our investment in the city and our customers’ demand for Club experiences,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director for Delta Sky Clubs.
Here’s everything we know.
Detroit’s Fifth Delta Sky Club Lounge
You can find the new lounge in Concourse A of DTW airport, just across from gate A43 and overlooking the terminal’s concourse and main Sky Club. The lounge is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Delta felt it was important to keep Detroit and the state of Michigan as a core element to the design and features of the 4,600-square-foot lounge.
The décor includes artwork from Michigan-based artists and the bar fridges are stocked with Motor City-made microbrews.
“We’ve put care into every detail — from the local artwork to the Club design — to create an elevated experience for guests and provide a space that allows them to rest easy this holiday season,” said Roussel.
There is also a premium bar where guests can sip on a complimentary pre-flight tipple or elevate their experience by upgrading to cocktails, spirits, or premium beer and wine for a fee.

Delta’s Presence in Detroit
As Detroit is Delta’s second-largest hub, it makes sense that a fifth lounge is necessary.
As well as being a key transit airport for domestic Delta flyers, the airport is also a key gateway for the airline’s international network to Europe and Asia.
Delta offers nonstop connections from Detroit to destinations in Europe such as Amsterdam (AMS), Frankfurt (FRA), London (LHR), Munich (MUC), and Paris (CDG).
Passengers can also fly nonstop to farther-flung destinations like Beijing (PKX), Nagoya (NGO), Seoul (ICN), Shanghai (PVG), and Tokyo (HND).
A visit to a lounge is a great way to start a trip, be it in long- or short-haul.
Delta’s new Sky Club at DTW should definitely be on your visit list if you’re passing through the airport this holiday season and beyond.
