American Will Upgrade to All Admirals Club Lounges
Airport lounges are an important perks for premium fares or premium credit cards. Especially with the state of air travel right now, a lounge can make a big difference for your travel experience.
And now there’s some good news for those who often find themselves at American Airlines Admirals Club lounges. The airline announced Thursday that it will launch a major renovation project to upgrade all of its Admirals Club lounges.
“The new Admirals Club interior design is inspired by our customers,” said Clarissa Sebastian, Managing Director of Premium Customer Experience & Onboard Products. “This design is the culmination of a partnership between American and an award-winning architectural firm well known for their designs in the hospitality space. Each element was thoughtfully developed to create an environment of calm, with natural woods and open spaces, so our customers can relax and feel their best as they prepare for their flight.”
The redesigned lounges with feature signature brand elements and references from local landscapes and landmarks that tell the story of each city and create a sense of place. Wellness will uniquely shine through selective design elements that set a tone of calm and familiarity. Sustainability is also built into the new design in intentional ways, such as branded elements made of renewable American walnut in every lounge.
“Our focus in working with American is to create a meaningful environment for guests to experience the airline’s inspirational brand and airport lounge in a fresh, new way,” comments Dwayne MacEwen, Founder and Principal of DMAC Architecture & Interiors. “Lounges will include a collection of thoughtfully designed memorable spaces, with opportunities for guests to engage, retreat and rejuvenate. The new design of the Admirals Club lounges offers a bespoke hospitality experience.”
The first lounge to debut the new look will be at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) this fall. After that, it’s Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Denver International Airport (DEN).
Customers can access the Admirals Club lounge through their itinerary, select cobranded credit card, or their membership, which could be discounted depending on their AAdvantage® status. You can find more information here.
