Delta has opened its third Sky Club at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International airport, located within the expanded G concourse.

The lounge has seating for more than 450 guests, and has been inspired by the state of Minnesota’s designation as “the land of 10,000 lakes”, with decor “ evoking summer sunsets at the lake”.

Facilities include a year-round Sky Deck featuring a living plant wall and seating for 110 guests, as well as two premium bars, and three soundproof work booths.

The lounge’s buffet menu will showcase hometown chefs on a quarterly rotating basis, with Justin Sutherland first up, creating dishes including chicken and andouille gumbo, shrimp and grits, pimento cheeseburger sliders and banana pudding.

Gates G18-G22 at Minneapolis-Saint Paul have recently been renovated, with new concessions and expanded seating areas and toilets, and the airport is undergoing a wider airside renovations scheduled to complete by the end of 2025, including new terrazzo flooring, refreshed ceilings and lighting, and upgraded digital signage.

Delta will operate over 330 peak-day flights to 120 destinations this summer, including transatlantic services to Amsterdam Schiphol, London Heathrow and Paris CDG.

The Minneapolis-Saint Paul Sky Club follows the recent unveiling of a Delta lounge within the new terminal building at Kansas City International airport.

Commenting on the news Claude Roussel, Delta Sky Club – managing director, said:

“We continue to raise the bar with every location we open, and the new MSP Club is no exception. Our goal was to create a space that reflects the natural beauty of the Great Lakes region, transporting and inspiring customers through the Club’s design, all while delivering a full suite of amenities and our signature hospitality.”

In December Delta announced plans to make several changes to its Sky Club access policy “to help preserve a premium experience”.

These include an increase in the fees for annual Club memberships, and new restrictions on entry eligibility.
