A pair of new Centurion and Escape lounges have opened at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport, both of which can be used free of charge by American Express Platinum and Centurion cardholders.
The two adjacent lounges in the airport’s Terminal 4 have a combined 9,500 square feet of space. Both will feature Mexican food from Chef Doug Robson, executive chef and co-owner of Phoenix’s Gallo Blanco and Otro Cafe, as well as cocktails curated by mixologists Jim Meehan, and wines selected by sommelier Anthony Giglio.
Amenities at the Centurion Lounge also include dedicated workspaces, power outlets, private phone areas, and access to high-speed wifi.
“The Centurion Lounge in Phoenix will also feature our new mobile check in capability within the US American Express mobile app, which is now live at nearly all of our Centurion Lounges across the globe,” noted Alexander Lee, vice president of loyalty and benefits at American Express.
The Escape Lounge, free to Amex Platinum, Amex Business Platinum and Centurion cardholders and accessible to other travellers for a fee, will offer local cuisine, Phoenix-inspired cocktails from mixologist Sarah McElroy, a silent digital library, and children’s activities.
The Phoenix Centurion Lounge is Amex’s 10th worldwide, with five more planned, said Lee.
Amex partnered with MAG USA, parent company of the Escape Lounges chain, to open the Phoenix lounges.
