American Express has unveiled plans to expand its signature airport lounge network, The Centurion Lounge, with a new location at Denver International Airport (DEN).
The lounge will be the second largest of its kind, spanning 14,000ft². It will be located in the Concourse C mezzanine and will be accessible to all passengers traveling through the hub, regardless of airline or concourse. The Centurion Lounge is expected to open next year.
Patrick Heck, chief commercial officer at DEN, said, “The American Express brand is well known for offering a high-quality experience for their guests, which aligns with DEN’s vision of the customer experience for our passengers. We are pleased that we are able to offer such a high-quality product like the American Express Centurion Lounge to our passengers.”
The new lounge will offer airfield views and design elements unique to DEN, which will be announced closer to the lounge’s opening. The new lounge will also feature amenities found across all Centurion Lounge locations, including complimentary food and beverages from top chefs, mixologists and wine specialists; a family room; premium restrooms and shower suites; access to high-speed wi-fi; noise-buffering workspaces; and more.
Josh McKay, vice president and general manager, global benefits and services, at American Express, added, “Airport lounge access is one of our platinum card members’ favorite benefits, with our card members’ global lounge visits increasing 30% year over year.
“We are thrilled to share our plans to bring one of our signature Centurion Lounges to the Denver International Airport, as Denver is one of the top airports our premium card members travel through.
