Seattle Centurion Lounge Closing Jan 29, New Lounge Will Open Soon
American Express revealed in early 2021 that its Centurion Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport would undergo major improvements. The lounge will triple in size to over 13,800 square ft and relocate to the mezzanine level of the Central Terminal. With a spacious entrance opening to the Central Terminal, the lounge will feature new seating areas that capitalize on the open-air atrium location. This expanded lounge will welcome Card Members with views of the airfield and Olympic Mountains, additional restrooms, private phone rooms and noise-buffering workspaces, cozy nooks, and more.
Finally, after two years, it looks like American Express is almost ready to open the doors of the new lounge. In order to make the transition, the current lounge will close later this month. Here’s the message that is now showing on the Centurion Lounge website:
Please note, the current lounge located in Concourse B will close permanently at 7pm on January 29th as we prepare to open a brand-new Centurion Lounge on the mezzanine level of the Central Terminal. We look forward to welcoming eligible Card Members to our new lounge in the coming weeks.
The new lounge was set to open in late 2022. But, it’s better late than never. There’s no exact date for the opening yet, so we’re not sure how long Platinum cardholders will be without a lounge at SEA. While American Express could not share the opening date, they sent images of some of the dishes you will be able to enjoy new Chef Kristi Brown.
When the new Centurion Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport actually opens, you will not be able to bring in guests for free. That’s a change that’s going in effect for the whole Centurion Lounge network as of February 1st.
