American Express has reopened the Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport following the site’s expansion and renovation.
American Express added an additional 4,000ft2 to the lounge, making it now span 12,300ft2. The Lounge remains located in Concourse D near Gate D-12 on the fourth floor, and offers more than 100 additional seats; refreshed menu of fresh, locally-inspired cuisine created by James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein; and a second bar that will be dedicated to serving a selection of wines curated by Centurion Lounge wine director Anthony Giglio, as well as an assortment of beers.
These features come in addition to the amenities and services at all Centurion Lounges, such as a shower suite, semi-private workspaces with high-speed Wi-Fi and family room.
The hours of operation will be 5am to 10pm daily.
Chris Cracchiolo, SVP, Global Loyalty & Benefits at American Express “We are so proud to unveil the renovated and expanded Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport. We know our card members value the services and amenities of our Centurion Lounge in this airport, so we’re excited to enhance these even further, and offer more seating for them to enjoy, relax and recharge in the new space.”
Michelle Bernstein, executive chef of The Centurion Lounge at MIA, commented, “Working with The Centurion Lounge has been one of the best partnerships of my career. I have not only enjoyed creating and producing delicious experiences for guests from around the world, but as an American Express Card Member I have also enjoyed all the perks of the Lounge every time I travel.
“I didn’t think it could get any better, until I was asked to create a new kind of menu for the expansion of the lounge. I have created a menu of my favorite sandwiches throughout the years: delicious salads, comforting soups and nibbles. Not only can we feed more people, but now you can choose from two completely different gastronomic experiences.”
