One of my favorite travel perks is having access to the American Express Centurion Lounges which are operated by American Express.

Today, American Express (NYSE: AXP) and MAG USA announced joint plans to bring two new lounge locations, The Centurion Lounge and the Escape Lounge, to Terminal 4 within the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in the coming months.

Bottom Line

Traveling can be a lot more fun if you have a fantastic lounge to hang out in with free food and beverage. I think that the Centurion Lounges are amazing and they keep adding more! If you want to gain access to them this year, consider picking up the Platinum Card® from American Express, or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express.

  1. Terminal 4 has 4 gates (A, B, C, and D). They are quite a distance apart. It would be useful to know which of these the lounge will be in and more detailed information about the projected opening (“in the coming months”) – is this August or November? I look forward to the opening whenever it is.
