United Airlines has opened Polaris lounges in all of its hubs with the exception of Denver International Airport (DEN). That’s about to change. At an event earlier today, United CEO, Scott Kirby announced that a new Polaris lounge will be opened “in a couple of years” between Gates A18 and A20. Construction on the new Polaris lounge has not started, but planning must be well underway for Kirby to reveal it.
United debuted its first redesigned Business-Class Experience known as Polaris in late 2016. It opened the first Polaris lounge that December. Since then it has opened Polaris lounges in all of its other hubs, including Houston, Los Angeles, Newark, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Denver is the only hub without a Polaris lounge and it was thought it might not get one given its limited international flights. While there are only a handful of nonstop options like London, Frankfurt, and Tokyo, many people connect through the Denver hub and would have a better experience with a Polaris lounge here.
No other details about the Polaris lounge were shared, but a lot more was revealed about United’s expanded operations and new lounges at Denver International Airport (read more here).
Anthony’s Take: The Polaris lounges are the nicest part of the Polaris experience. While catering onboard is pretty bad, the buffet, sit-down restaurant, and other amenities in the Polaris lounges are great. I look forward to visiting this one.

It’s safe to say the opening will be 3-4 years from now at a minimum. Skip the lounge feeding troughs and head to the excellent Mercantile outpost instead.
