Delta is set to reopen seven Sky Clubs across the US this month, as it continues to add flights to its schedules.
Clubs at Chicago O’Hare (E Concourse), Denver, Miami, Nashville, Orlando, Phoenix and San Francisco will join a number of facilities which remained opened during the coronavirus pandemic (including lounges at Atlanta, Boston, LAX, JFK and Washington DC).
As part of the carrier’s recently launched Delta Care Standard package of measures in the light of Covid-19, a number of changes have been made to lounge operations, including:
- Limited lounge capacity, with seats blocked off to promote more space
- Designated seating areas for families travelling together
- Mask-wearing requirements extended to Sky Clubs
- Floor signage reminding guests to maintain extra space
- Plexiglass partitions at check-in, at the bar, and between café tables
- Hand sanitiser dispensers near high-traffic and high-touch areas
- Modified food service, with individually packaged food options including sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, muffins, pastries, salads, hummus and pita chips
- Clubs being sanitised nightly with electrostatic spray
Note that according to this page, lounge shower services have been temporarily discontinued.
Delta recently established a new Global Cleanliness division, dedicated to innovating and evolving cleanliness standards in the light of Covid-19.
