The emblazoned American Express Centurion is marching its way to JFK International Airport.

American Express announced it will open its largest location of HYPERLINK “www.thecenturionlounge.com” “_blank” The Centurion Lounge at HYPERLINK “https://www.jfkt4.nyc/” “_blank” John F.

With spectacular views of the airfield, exceptional amenities, and one-of-a-kind design elements, the new lounge spans more than 15,000-square-feet across two levels. The lounge is estimated to open by early 2019 next to the current Etihad lunge and the Chapel area of the airport. The lounge will be situated after security check-in.

“We are thrilled to be working with American Express to bring The Centurion Lounge to Terminal 4,” said Gert-Jan de Graaff, President and CEO of JFKIAT, the company which operates Terminal 4. “Terminal 4 strives to provide passengers with a superior travel experience, and this lounge is a welcome addition to our existing mix of premium terminal amenities. We are excited to soon be able to offer passengers yet another service to take advantage of before departure or during a layover.”

The Centurion Lounge at JFK Terminal 4 will include special new features to be announced closer to the lounge’s opening, in addition to those found across all Centurion Lounge locations such as a complimentary custom bar and food menu, premium restrooms and shower suites, access to high-speed Wi-Fi, noise-buffering workspaces, and more.* The lounge will be located post-security on the 4th floor Departures level of Terminal 4.
