Prior to my recent flight from San Francisco to New York on Delta, I decided to stop in the brand new Delta SFO SkyClub. I was able to access this club using one of my favorite perks with my American Express Platinum Card which is Delta SkyClub access.

We wrote about this club when it opened a few months ago, however this was the first time I was able to stop in it first hand, so below are some pictures from this awesome SkyClub.

How To Get Access:

There are many credit cards which provide access to the Delta SkyClubs including the new one at SFO. As reminder both the American Express Platinum Card as well as the Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN provide complimentary SkyClub access.

When it comes to Delta co-branded credit cards, the Delta Reserve American Express provides complimentary SkyClub access, where the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card offer SkyClub access at a reduced $29 per person charge.

In addition, if you’re a Delta One passenger flying between San Francisco to New York (JFK), you receive complimentary access.

Bottom Line

This is probably one of the nicest SkyClubs that Delta has in its network of clubs, being that its just a couple of months old. It offers tons of lighting throughout with great tarmac views. Unlike their old club, this one is located post-security which I prefer to a club where you must leave to go through security, since you can’t really predict how long the security line can be.
