Delta Air Lines took the wraps off of its newest Sky Club at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on July 24, 2023.
This opening should be a welcome addition for Delta frequent flyers based in the New York area — let’s take a look at everything this new lounge has to offer.
Delta’s Newest Sky Club Opens at JFK T4
The highly-anticipated second Delta Sky Club at New York (JFK) has opened in Terminal 4’s A concourse, near gate A7.
This joins the existing Sky Club in the B concourse. With the addition of the new 14,000-square-foot lounge, they together provide capacity for up to 800 passengers visiting at once.
Similar to Delta’s other recent lounge openings, this new JFK lounge’s design is inspired by its home city.
“This new Club is beautifully designed and packed with special details that reflect the magic of New York City,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director — Delta Sky Club. “But much more important than that, it’s a place where our people can deliver Delta Sky Club’s signature hospitality, making each guest feel welcomed and cared for from the moment they step inside.”
Flyers can expect upscale seating options including “a tucked-away nook with lush green seating,” an elegant full-service bar, a covered Sky Deck, an inviting fireplace, stunning views of the tarmac, and more.
Delta’s using the opening to highlight talented local chefs. Through the end of September, dishes from Elyssa Heller, Founder and CEO of Edith’s Eatery and Grocery in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, will be featured. The rotation will include the chef’s unique spin on iconic Jewish deli favorites such as brisket hash sandwiches, vegetarian latkes, labneh parfaits, and her famous Iced Café Slushie made with cold brew, tahini, oat milk, and simple syrup.
The opening of the new Sky Club is the latest in a long line of investments Delta has made at JFK. According to the airline, it’s spent a whopping $7 billion on its home in the airport since 2010.
This includes a $1.5 billion expansion of Concourse B that will add 28 gates, the closure of the former Terminal 2 and consolidation to Terminal 4, the addition of 10 gates in Concourse A, updated restrooms, upgrades to its check-in and bag-drop facilities, and more. A Delta One Lounge is expected to open in 2023 as well.Hot Tip:

Delta has finally opened a second Sky Club at one of its most important gateways in the country. Delta’s original JFK Sky Club has notoriously suffered from overcrowding and long waits to enter, so the addition of another 14,000-square-foot lounge should go a long way to alleviating these issues. We’re certainly excited to check out this brand-new Sky Club for ourselves!
