American Express has signed a deal to bring a new Centurion Lounge to the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.
The Points Guy reported April 14, 2018 that the new lounge would serve international passengers as well as those in the directly connecting terminals 4 and 5, which in turn are connected to terminals 6 and 8. “While it’s not a short walk between these terminals, this new lounge will be a welcome reprieve during long LAX layovers,” the Points Guy noted.
Amex opened a pop-up Centurion Lounge at LAX in December of 2016 “to provide travellers with a retreat to relax in during the busy holiday travel season and raise further awareness for our premium Centurion Lounges across the country.” The temporary facility closed in 2016.
American Express would lease the lounge space at LAX for $2.8 million annually; the lease is for a ten-year term.
The LAX Centurion lounge will be Amex’s 12th such premium lounge in the US; details recently leaked about the company’s plans to open its 11th Centurion Lounge at Denver International Airport. The lounges are for the exclusive use of American Express Platinum and Centurion card holders.
