American Express's motto for Centurion airport lounges in 2019 seems to be: Can't stop, won't stop.
The credit card company already has four lounges in the works for next year, with outposts set to open at New York City-JFK (JFK), Denver (DEN), Los Angeles (LAX), and Charlotte (CLT). American Express is heading back abroad for its next addition. It confirmed it will open a lounge at London-Heathrow (LHR) in 2019 as well.
It will be American Express's second international lounge, following the location at Hong Kong (HKG). And it will be its 14th Centurion lounge overall. The current collection includes HKG, Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Houston-Intercontinental (IAH), Las Vegas (LAS), New York-LaGuardia (LGA), Philadelphia (PHL), Miami (MIA), Seattle (SEA), and San Francisco (SFO).
While there aren't many details on this latest planned lounge, we know it will be located in LHR's Terminal 3. That means it will be easy to access for travelers flying on Delta, Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines, British Airways, and other oneworld alliance airlines who fly in and out of Terminal 3.
It will clock in at 7,000 square feet, which is definitely on the small side. No word yet on what amenities the lounge will offer. But every Centurion lounge has high-speed WiFi and better-than-average food.
“In addition to the amenities found across other Centurion Lounge locations – such as premium showers and private noise-buffering workstations – the Centurion Lounge at Heathrow Airport will feature specially curated amenities influenced by London’s distinctive food, drinks, and design,” the company said in a release announcing the new lounge.
