With Salt Lake City International Airport recently opening its latest terminal, Delta – the largest of airlines operating from SLC – has also opened its largest Delta Sky Club with guests able to enjoy the new space from today.
Covering just over 28,000 square feet, the new Club celebrates the area’s famous mountainous landscape while offering guests a space to relax during their travels. Located on the ground level of the new terminal and nearby Delta gates, the lounge boasts a few unique features including a 360-degree modern fireplace as a focal point to the lounge area.
Also synonymous with Delta’s lounges, there’s a covered Sky Deck overlooking the Wasatch Range that can be enjoyed year-round. To add some personality to the space, the lounge also features an artwork collection inspired by the mountain west and hand-picked by Delta Sky Club’s art curator featuring several local artists .
The initial pictures show a myriad of patterns and details to the seating and space dividers, but this certainly isn’t as cohesive as a Polaris lounge, something that United can proudly boast, yet the design aesthetic and unique elements certainly make it stand out against rival American’s lounges. It’s interesting to see that although Delta and Virgin Atlantic have a strategic partnership, the Virgin lounges are much more thought through with better zoning and points of interest.
Hopefully the next wave of Delta Sky Clubs will mirror their smaller sister airline’s bolder, more innovative and branded spaces. Still, SLC features two food stations, two full-service bars, and five coffee and beverage stations, supported by swathes of seating, high-speed Wi-Fi, and power outlets at nearly every seat.
“From show-stopping design details to enhanced safety measures, our team carefully considered every detail of our beautiful new Club,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director — Delta Sky Club. “This project is years in the making and is a testament to our long-term investment here in Salt Lake City. We are ready to welcome guests who may have taken a break from travel whenever they are ready to return to the skies.”
