In a city that never sleeps, our Card Members can now find an oasis at LaGuardia Airport to relax and refresh when they’re traveling into and out of the city, says Lisa Durocher, Senior Vice President, Consumer Charge Cards & Benefits at American Express. As our third Centurion Lounge, opening the LaGuardia Airport location marks a huge milestone for us, and brings us closer to our goal of creating a better airport experience for our Card Members.

This is just one of a list of ongoing improvements the Port Authority has made to modernize LaGuardia Airport, highlighted by a $3.6 billion investment campaign which features a brand new Central Terminal Building.

The Centurion Lounge at LaGuardia is the third in a network of lounges in some of the busiest airports across the U.S., with locations currently open in McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The Centurion Lounge in San Francisco Airport (SFO) and Miami International Airport (MIA) are also under construction.

Looks like commuting via LaGuardia just became slightly less taxing…at least for AmEx customers, that is.
