Officials are negotiating the details for a proposed American Express Centurion Lounge at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Simple Flying reports.
On the agenda for a city of Charlotte meeting this week is an application to approve a lease for the lounge in the airport, commencing sometime in 2019. The likely opening date would be in autumn, when an expansion of the airport’s Easy Terminal is expected to be completed.
The lease application is for a 13,295-square-foot lounge on the upper level of the terminal between concourses D and E. The lease would be for a ten-year period.
Currently, American Express has Centurion Lounges in Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York/LaGuardia, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle, with announced plans to build others in Los Angeles, New York/JFK, and Denver. There also is one international Centurion Lounge, in Hong Kong.
The lounges are open to holders of American Express Black Cards and American Express Platinum Cards. Each lounge has unique features reflective of the destinations where they reside, including architectural notes and regional food and drink.
