A staggering 18 months ahead of schedule, the doors to the ‘Delta Sky Way’ at LAX is now open to customers. And when LAX customers visit the new Delta terminal, they’ll have more than just a streamlined check-in experience and new designer facilities to look forward to. The new Delta Sky Club at LAX, located on the departures level between T2 and T3, features a wealth of design features combined with awe-inspiring views and promises to “offer an unparalleled lounge experience for customers with Club access.”
“Planning for this Delta Sky Club began back in 2018 and every detail – from the seating to the food and beverage offerings to the premium design – was selected to create a one-of-a-kind experience for guests,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director – Delta Sky Club. “Whether guests visit the new Delta Sky Club to dine, work or simply enjoy the views, they’ll find much to love in this world-class lounge for a world-class airport.”
It’s no small lounge either. At over 30,000 square feet, the Delta Sky Club at LAX Sky Way is one of the largest in the Delta network, with ample space for guests to retreat, relax and recharge both inside and in the fresh (albeit JetA1 infused) Californian air.
In T3, the journey begins in the downstairs lobby, where guests can check themselves in at one of five self-service kiosk stations. These kiosks are designed for ease of use and will speed up Club access for guests.
To enter the lounge, passengers can either climb the impressive staircase or use the escalators, which feature impressive ceiling fixtures modelled after ocean waves before arriving at the custom wood-screened area that marks the Club’s entrance.
Inside there’s a wealth of seating areas, and the design features create contrast and intriguing zones meaning there’s literally a spot for everybody. And while T3’s lounge remains open, there’s more than enough seating, with space for up to 800 guests at a time across the two lounges.
The lounge screams California, with a myriad of artworks, murals and furniture that ooze LA style. It’s clear that Delta has invested in the design details, making for what seems like one of the best lounges in LAX and giving the much loved Star Alliance lounge in TBIT a run for its money.
Throughout the lounge, guests can enjoy multiple food buffet and beverage centres that feature a seasonally inspired selection of fresh items, with options for dining in and quick snacks for customers on the go.
In addition to the regular menu rotation, the Club will feature special food and beverage programming that shines a spotlight on local makers and restaurant talent. Through the Fresh Farm program, Delta partners with local artisans to highlight handcrafted, regionally made food and beverage products in a weekly activation similar to a farmer’s market pop-up.
Perhaps the crowning glory however, is the lounges Sky Deck which features a full service bar and retractable roof meaning it can be enjoyed in almost every eventuality with far reaching views across the northern runway and the Hollywood hills.
Upon completion in 2023, Terminals 2 and 3 will be a consolidated 27-gate, 1.2-million-square-foot complex that connects Terminals 2 and 3 to the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B), enabling quick post-security connections to Delta and Delta partner-operated flights. Delta, LAX’s largest global and leading carrier, has long been committed to modernising and upgrading the airport experience for customers at its West Coast hub, where the airline offers over 140 daily flights to 53 destinations around the world.
