The airline industry maybe grinding to a halt in the midst of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped American Express from opening the latest facility under its growing Centurion Lounge brand.

CNBC reports that the lounge at Los Angeles International airport is the 12th Centurion Lounge to open worldwide, and covers 14,000 square feet – the brand’s largest facility to date.

It is located in the airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal, and can be accessed post-security by travellers in LAX’s terminals 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Like other Centurion Lounges, the LAX facility will be open to premium Amex and Delta SkyMiles cardholders and features locally inspired artwork, interior design, and food and drink options.

Menu options include California cuisine like asparagus egg pie, panettone french toast, and roasted beets with horseradish vinaigrette, and coffee from Los Angeles-based City Bean Roasters.

The lounge also has a pair of tranquility rooms – the brightly lit Sunrise and the sedate Moonrise spaces. Exhale spa treatments include chair massages, hand and nail treatments, light therapy, and Reiki treatments.

So far in 2020, Amex has opened Centurion Lounges at LAX and in Charlotte and Phoenix. Other openings planned for this year include New York’s JFK, Denver International Airport, and London Heathrow.

“Our lounge offerings will continue to be a strategic focus for us as we expand the Centurion Lounge footprint by opening new lounges and expanding existing ones, introducing digital discovery and check-in tools in our Amex mobile app in collaboration with LoungeBuddy and continuing to elevate the in-lounge experience,” said Alexander Lee, VP of travel experiences and benefits at American Express.
