Delta Air lines announced yesterday that construction on their new Delta Sky Club at Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport (HND) has started. The new club will be opened in time for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games and will be located in the TIAT Lounge Annex on the fifth floor of the International Terminal. The new club will be nearly 9,000 square feet and be located near departing Delta flights for seven US gateways including Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Portland, Seattle and Honolulu. Delta will be the largest US carrier serving Tokyo-Haneda (from March 29, 2020) and the only airline with a proprietary lounge at Tokyo's closest and most convenient airport.
Delta’s new Club will open in early July and feature regularly rotated international and Japanese seasonal menus, including a noodle bar. A full-service bar will also be available, offering seasonal cocktails and a wine selection which has been carefully curated by Delta’s Master Sommelier, Andrea Robinson. Design elements and artwork in the Club will reflect local Japanese culture and history. Hi-Speed Wi-Fi will be available along with ample comfortable seating and power outlets for recharging personal devices. The Club will also offer shower suites for guests wishing to refresh.
In a separate press release Tuesday, Delta also announced, in conjunction with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, a dramatic expansion of JFK Terminal 4, where Delta operations will be consolidated. The Port Authority will, subject to board approval, finalize a lease amendment with JFK International Air Terminal (JFKIAT), the terminal operator, for the expansion and renovation of the Terminal 4 arrivals and departure hall. Additionally, 16 gates will be added to the terminal’s Concourse A, existing concourses will be renovated, and perimeter roadways will be upgraded. Commenting on the expansion, which is expected to be completed by 2023, Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said,
“Delta is investing more in airport infrastructure today than at any other time in our history. With transformational projects now underway at both JFK and LaGuardia, we’re creating the airports our New York customers have long deserved. We’re looking forward to working with our partners at JFKIAT and the Port Authority to deliver a truly superior experience at JFK Terminal 4 that cements its status as a world-class global gateway for Delta customers.”
Over the last decade, Delta has grown their new York City presence by over 65% and now operates over 240 peak daily departures from JFK. The airline offers flights to nearly 100 destinations in over 30 countries worldwide. Delta Air Lines first unveiled their $1.4B state-of-the-art JFK Terminal 4 renovation in 2013. The terminal expansion will also include a new Delta Sky Club in Terminal 4’s Concourse A, complementing the existing Club in concourse B that opened in 2013 - featuring a Sky Deck.
