Delta Sky Club at Newark’s Terminal A Now Open
Delta Sky Club is now open and ready to welcome customers at Newark’s Terminal A, the airline’s new home. The stylish, 7,000-plus-square-foot space seats over 200 guests (an increase of 50 from the Terminal B Club) and includes elevated views of the newly built Terminal A and airfield.
The EWR Terminal A Club joins recently opened lounges in neighboring NYC airports: JFK’s T4-A Club, opened in July, and the largest Club in the system, opened last summer at LaGuardia on Delta’s new Terminal C facility. With the opening of the EWR Club, New York City-area customers can enjoy an upgraded lounge experience at any of the area’s three airports.
A uniquely open-air space, the EWR Terminal A Club features several acoustic systems designed to absorb the outside sounds of the airport so guests can enjoy a relaxing and social setting.
“This lounge is a true product of its environment – both in the airport and the surrounding Newark area,” said Claude Roussel, Vice President, Sky Clubs and Lounge Experience. “Our team has used thoughtful design touches to create a welcoming, relaxing space in the middle of a busy terminal. We can’t wait for Newark guests to discover this lounge for themselves and experience our signature Delta Sky Club hospitality.”
The lounge design takes inspiration from Newark’s historic importance as a manufacturing hub. Once known for its factories, leather tanneries and breweries, Newark’s history of industry is reflected in the Club’s warm leather textures and metallic finishes. The Club’s rigid architectural lines and rich colors merge with the soft, curving shapes representative of the landscape, reflecting a harmonious blend of the natural and the industrial.
Guests of the Terminal A Club can enjoy a drink from either the premium bar or the beverage station, as well as a buffet stocked with a seasonally inspired selection of fresh items. With four private all-gender restrooms and amenity zones for mobile work, socializing or simply relaxing with a pre-flight cocktail, this lounge is well-appointed to meet customers’ travel needs.
Sky Club Restrictions
There are rumors that Delta will add restrictions to Sky Club access for American Express cardholders. These changes are expected to kick in sometime in January or February of 2024, and fully implemented by 2025. Emails will be sent out later this year to inform cardholders.
