Delta announced some changes to their Delta Sky Club in terms of membership prices as well as partner lounge access. These latest changes take affect as of Jan. 1, 2019.

Here’s a rundown of what’s changing as of Jan. 1, 2019:

  • Delta Sky Club members and their guests will only be eligible to access Delta Sky Club when traveling on a flight operated by Delta or its partner airlines.
  • Starting last fall, we shared this information with customers (via .com) over a year in advance of the start date to ensure there is an abundance of time for decision making around membership and travel plans.
  • The individual membership price will increase by $50 and executive membership price will increase by $100.
  • Delta Sky Club Members will continue to have access to Delta Sky Clubs as a part of the Delta Sky Club membership. They will no longer have access to Air France, KLM Crown or Virgin Australia lounges.
  • Starting today, Delta Sky Club will no longer sell single-visit passes, but will continue to accept those already sold for entry. This represents a small fraction amount of guests and is based on customer feedback.

How To Get Access with Credit Cards:

There are many credit cards which provide access to the Delta SkyClubs. As reminder both the American Express Platinum Card as well as the Business Platinum Card from American Express provide complimentary Sky Club access.

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