American Express and MAG USA (parent company of Escape) have just announced the opening of The Centurion and Escape Lounges at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX).

Located in the airport’s Terminal 4 the lounges will cater to passengers flying with Air Canada, American Airlines, British Airways, Condor, Southwest, Volaris and WestJet. The new lounge complex spans over 9,500 square feet, with the two side-by-side locations featuring a shared entrance, separate reception areas, specialty cocktails and fresh locally-inspired cuisine.


“Our premium Card Members tell us that lounge access is the number one travel benefit they’re looking for, so we’re excited to bring two world class lounge experiences to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport,” said Alexander Lee, Vice President of Loyalty and Benefits at American Express. Lee added, “The Centurion Lounge in Phoenix is our 10th location and builds on the ongoing growth of our lounge access with plans to open five more Centurion Lounges in airports around the world.”


“MAG USA is thrilled to help bring to life both of these premium lounges in Phoenix Sky Harbor,” said Martin Jones, CEO of MAG USA. “We look forward to this collaboration and bringing a new and exciting experience to Phoenix travellers.”
