American Express officially announced its plans to build a Centurion® Lounge at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). The lounge, once open in 2026, will be the largest in American Express’ network at over 17,000 square feet.

The new space will feature a 1,400-square-foot indoor terrace with views of the Manhattan skyline and a piano lounge complete with a cocktail bar to celebrate New Jersey’s rich jazz history. The lounge will join the newly opened United Club, Delta Sky Club®, and American Admiral’s Club in Terminal A. Like other Centurion® Lounges, it will include a menu inspired by local cuisine, several seating areas, dedicated workstations, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. American Express signed a 15-year lease with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Audrey Hendley, President of American Express Travel, said:

The Centurion® Lounge at Newark Liberty International Airport is a strong addition to our global Network giving eligible Card Members a taste of New Jersey’s history, while delivering the premium experience and amenities that have become synonymous with the Centurion® Lounges.”

Port Authority Chairman, Kevin O’Toole, added:

The new Terminal A is the first step in a renaissance for Newark Liberty International Airport. The addition of the Centurion® Lounge, with its stunning architecture, incredible amenities and a celebration of New Jersey’s rich history throughout will be a fitting capstone to an already world-class facility.”

Anthony’s Take: The new Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is gorgeous and will be the most lounge-rich terminal at the airport. The addition of the Centurion® Lounge will add another great option and I can’t wait to check it out (in 2026).
