American Express has announced the opening of The Centurion Lounge, the latest in a series of AmEx-branded, members-only lounges opening in the United States.

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.

What does one get for their membership?

  • Locally-inspired, seasonal cuisine designed by C├ędric Vongerichten,
    Executive Chef at Perry St in New York City, named one of Zagat’s top 30
    up-and-coming chefs under 30.
  • New York-inspired specialty cocktails and wine selections created by
    renowned mixologist Jim Meehan and wine director Anthony Giglio.
  • Connected work spaces with high speed Wi-Fi, outlets near every seat and
    private noise-buffering work spaces.
  • Member Services Professionals to provide onsite Card related and travel related services like reservations at restaurants, airlines and hotels.

Platinum Card Members receive unlimited, complimentary access.

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.
