Last year American Express announced two new lounge openings for 2015 – an American Express Centurion Lounge for the Miami International Airport, and a smaller-format American Express Studio in Seattle. These two lounges will be joining the four existing American Express Centurion Lounges in Dallas-Ft. Worth, LaGuardia, San Francisco and Las Vegas. It looks like the MIA lounge is going to be open before the SEA lounge, and there has been much speculation on when exactly the MIA lounge will open.
When Will The Amex Centurion Lounge Open In MIA?
When the press release came out on May 6, 2014 announcing the MIA lounge, they said they had hoped to open the approximately 8,000 square foot lounge located in the North Terminal at the site of the old British Airways Lounge “by the end of 2014”. Well, since that didn’t happen, we put in a “Media Inquiry” on when the MIA lounge might open.
American Express responded, “Right now, we are aiming to open late spring. As soon as we have a more specific timeframe, I can let you know.”
This is just another fantastic benefit of having The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express – apply here. All you have to do is show the agent your boarding pass (for that day,) your ID and your Business Platinum Card® for complementary access to the Centurion lounges.
I can’t wait for the lounge to open. If all is to be believed, it should be open in the next 8 to 10 weeks. Is anybody familiar with this site of this lounge, rumored to be by gate D-12? Has anyone seen construction or progress towards opening? And who else is excited by this lounge?
