Luxe American Express lounge coming to DIA

DENVER — Denver International Airport soon will be home to an American Express Centurion Lounge.

Set to open in 2019, the luxury lounge will occupy 14,650 square feet in the C Concourse, according to Denver City Council documents.

Centurion Lounges are free for people with American Express Platinum and Centurion cards.

Inside, they will find complimentary high-speed internet, food, drinks, showers and other amenities.

American Express has Centurion lounges at a number of international U.S. airports, including in San Francisco, Miami and Philadelphia.

The Denver lounge will be the company’s second largest after its upcoming location at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to The Points Guy.

American Express told Business Wire that it has seen a 36 percent increase in traffic through Denver among its premium cardholders within the past year.

It will pay $20 million over the next 10 years to lease the space.

While the C Concourse is home to Southwest, Alaska, Spirit and Allegiant airlines, cardholders flying any airline can use the lounge.

The lounge is part of a number of changes coming to DIA, including several new restaurants.
