Centurion Lounge at DCA
In early 2021, American Express announced plans to expand the Centurion Lounge network with a location at Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National Airport (DCA).
With floor to ceiling windows, airfield views and one-of-a-kind design elements inspired by the city’s history, the new Centurion Lounge at DCA will span more than 11,500-square-feet. Built from the ground up, the entrance will be located in National Hall near Terminal B, after security. In addition to special local touches, the lounge will feature signature Centurion Lounge amenities such as a complimentary custom bar and food menu, premium restrooms and shower suites, access to high-speed Wi-Fi, noise-buffering workspaces, and more.
The lounge at DCA was originally estimated to open in late 2022, following the airport’s completion of Project Journey, a $1 billion capital improvement project. But that didn’t happen.
But now it appears that the project is moving along, as first reported by ARL. Boards concealing construction activity are up, advertising the lounge from American Express coming to the airport, plus Compass USA, the food service provider associated with the lounge, has applied for a liquor license, per a Virginia ABC notice posted to the boards.
While it looks like the lounge opening is getting closer, there’s still no exact date about when it will actually welcome guests. A recent CNN report claimed the lounge is now expected to open “later this year.” I have reached out to American Express for comment and will update the article if they provide any relevant information.
