Today, American Express announced plans to open the thirteenth and fourteenth locations in its signature airport lounge network,, at London’s Heathrow Airport. The Centurion Lounge at Heathrow Airport will be the first location in Europe, and the second location outside of the US.
American Express also confirmed what we already know about the new Centurion Lounge coming in 2020 at Charlotte Douglas Airport in North Carolina. It will be one of the largest locations in the network.
The new Centurion Lounge at Heathrow will open in 2019. It will be located post-security in Terminal 3 and span 7,000 square feet. In addition to the amenities found across other Centurion Lounge locations – such as premium showers and private noise-buffering work stations – the Centurion Lounge at Heathrow Airport will feature specially curated amenities influenced by London’s distinctive food, drinks, and design.
In celebration of the new Centurion Lounge coming to London, Platinum Card® and Centurion® Members can get a taste of the Centurion Lounge’s premium service and amenities this holiday season at a pop-up Centurion Lounge at Unit 6, Langley Street, in London’s Covent Garden, which will be open from December 13 to December 16 from 11:00am to 6:00pm each day. A sophisticated sanctuary from the holiday hustle and bustle, the pop-up Centurion Lounge will offer complimentary bites and beverages, gift wrapping services, charging stations and family programming. Platinum Card and Centurion Members are welcome to attend with up to two complimentary guests. More information about The Centurion Lounge pop up at Covent Garden can be found.

It’s great to see American Express adding more lounges to The Centurion Lounge network. These are great places to relax at airports. The new London location should be great news for many travelers flying to Europe, since London is a major hub. It also adds more values to the personal and business Platinum cards which have had their fees increased recently.
