I got to check out the new Delta Sky Club® in Newark Liberty International Airport on my way to a convention in Las Vegas this week.
It’s in the New Terminal A, which is a gorgeous, modern space that’s home to lounges from American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines (a Centurion Lounge will open here in the future).
The terminal is huge and bright with tons of natural light and a massive improvement over the old, date Terminal A.
Access is granted to passengers with memberships (purchased annually), one-time pass holders (earned from the co-branded American Express cards), Delta One®, SkyTeam premium cabin passengers, SkyTeam Elite Plus when flying internationally in premium cabins, the Centurion® and the Platinum Card® from American Express holders, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card holders, WestJet business class passengers, and WestJet Rewards Platinum and Gold Elite. Allowed guests vary by access type. A same-day boarding pass is required to enter the Delta Sky Club®.
Anthony’s Take: This Sky Club® is a welcome addition to Terminal A and a huge improvement over the past location that was in Terminal B (review here). It’s bright, welcoming, open, and offers all of the food and beverages that Delta does so well. I look forward to future visits.
When entering the lounge, there was an agent and a few kiosks to check credentials and grant access.
The lounge is one open 7,000-square -foot room with a buffet and bar as well as restrooms and lots of seating areas (for up to 200 people). I love that some of the art from the old Sky Club® made it to the new location including this Frank Sinatra picture.
You’ll find a large bar on the left side of the lounge. It offers all of the standard spirits, wine, and beer that Delta provides complimentary as well as some premium options for purchase.
A wall of beverages is near the buffet. This includes a self-serve soda machine.
A coffee machine is here as well.
There are two brewed coffee dispensers.
Iced tea and a Bevi machine (this dispenses flavored sparkling water)
There are lots of condiments and tea on hand.
Lunch/dinner was being served during my visit. The main buffet has soups, salads, sandwiches, cold cuts, cheeses, and several hot dishes.
Chicken Thai Soup and Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Soup
Cheese and meats
Vegetables and hummus
Chicken & Andouille Étoufée
Country Chicken & Vegetable Stew and Green Beans and Carrots
Coconut & Pecan Cookies and Chocolate Brownies
Assorted desserts on a separate cart
Staff members were also walking around offering a special chocolate dessert.
Seating & Decor
There is lots of seating in this Sky Club®. I love how open the lounge feels and as mentioned above that much of the art from the last lounge made it into the new one. Bruce Springsteen is posted on the wall above.
This Pop Art, Campbell’s Soup label is near the entrance.
New Jersey is represented in another piece.
This Sky Club® offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, magazines, and the food and beverages mentioned above.
This Delta Sky Club® at EWR is a good size and offers a bright, comfortable space to work or relax. It’s a huge upgrade from the old Terminal B lounge and I look forward to visiting again.
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).
