On Tuesday (October 6, 2020), American Express unveiled their new John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Centurion® Lounge which will open in the coming days. The lounge is in JFK’s Terminal 4 and located just beyond the TSA checkpoints to the left of the escalators. American Express Platinum Card Members can visit the lounge from 6 am to 9 pm daily. The spacious club features two premium bars and a speakeasy called 1850, after the year American Express was established. The cocktail menu and wine selection in the speakeasy have been curated by Jim Meehan and Anthony Giglio.
Guests visiting the new lounge will enjoy access to digital newspapers and magazines as well as self-led spa services by Equinox. The lounge also features high-speed Wi-Fi and a specialty coffee bar, serving drip coffee and espresso from Irving Farm’s New York Coffee. Customers can also dine in decadence with a menu designed by Uruguay-born New York Chef Ignacio Mattos with generous, bright and bold cuisine inspired by his Italian grandmother and NY roots.
The American Express Global Lounge Collection® offers the most extensive lounge access compared to other U.S. credit card programs (as of August 2020). Platinum Card Members enjoy access to over 1,300 lounges across 140 countries including flagship Centurion® Lounge and International American Express lounges. To access then new JFK Centurion® lounge, guests must present their valid AMEX Platinum Card, same day boarding pass, and a valid government-issued ID. Platinum Card Members can also bring two complimentary guests.
