Delta just announced that its second Sky Club® is open at New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in Terminal 4 near Gate A7.
The new lounge is nearly 14,000 square feet and seats more than 250 guests. It includes a covered Sky Deck and complements the other Sky Club® in Terminal 4, Concourse B. Combined, these lounges can accommodate over 800 guests simultaneously. There will soon be three lounges at JFK when the new Delta One® Lounge opens next year exclusively for Business Class passengers.
The lounge takes its design inspiration from New York City and offers a host of amenities including:
- A fireplace lounge with sweeping views of the airfield.
- A tucked-away nook that feels like a classic speakeasy.
- A 360-degree premium bar that serves as the centerpiece of the Sky Club®.
- An outdoor Sky Deck.
For food, Delta runs a program that highlights the cuisine of local chefs. This lounge will feature a menu from Elyssa Heller who is the founder and CEO of Edith’s Eatery & Grocery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Guests can look forward to Jewish deli staples like a brisket hash sandwich, vegetarian latkes, and a labneh parfait. Elyssa’s recipes will be featured through the end of September.
Delta has invested over $7 billion in infrastructure at its New York airports since 2010. This includes a $1.5 billion expansion project at JFK. Delta has consolidated all operations to Terminal 4 and opened 10 new gates in Concourse A. An expansion of Concourse B (scheduled for completion in the fall of 2023) will include 28 gates that can accommodate various aircraft types, updated restrooms, and an expanded security checkpoint and baggage claim.
Anthony’s Take: I can’t wait to check out this new Sky Club® when I’m at JFK next month. The pictures look beautiful and the space is desperately needed to handle the number of passengers heading through JFK.
Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: I love the lounges where The Platinum Card® from American Express grants me access. It has had a prominent place in my wallet for many years now. While it does have an annual fee of $695, it provides many travel benefits and will always be my go-to for lounge access (both Delta Sky Clubs® and Centurion Lounges) and booking airfare from the airlines to earn 5x points (up to $500,000 per calendar year).
