Over the last two years, you’ve likely seen the huge structure being built atop of Concourse B at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Now you can take a look inside the posh new lounge via the slideshow provided by Delta above. (Hover over image to start show)
The new 25,000-foot space boasts floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views– and when you are up that high, you can get a nice view of the downtown Atlanta skyline.
Delta’s Andrea Robinson has curated a wine selection that is featured at a unique wine wall where guests can request a taste, glass or a flight of wines. A wine ambassador will help you sample just what they’re looking for. (Sounds a lot like what the American Express Centurion Lounge in San Francisco is doing- see post and photos.)
At the bar, you find the standard variety of premium and complimentary options including cocktails, Sweetwater craft beer and Starbucks coffee, freshly brewed or espresso-based drinks from a Swiss coffee maker. (Similar to what we have seen at Delta’s stellar SFO SkyClub which opened last year– see post and photos here.
Delta says that the food offerings will include locally inspired soups, salads and breads exclusive to the Atlanta B Delta Sky Club. Additional menu items include pasta and rice salads, corn and blueberry muffins, rye rolls and soup toppings, including crispy chickpeas, coconut shavings and croutons. At breakfast, there are locally baked bagels, hard boiled eggs and a yogurt bar with toppings. Fruit and snacks are offered throughout the day.
This club is second in size only to New York – JFK’s T4 facility. Located on Concourse B near Gate B18, the new space 500 seats and is expected to be the busiest Club in the entire Delta system. Delta’s two original SkyClubs on Concourse B are now closed.
What’s Next for Delta’s SkyClubs?
- In mid-October, Seattle’s second Delta Sky Club will open between Concourses A and B, offering another option for global travelers.
- The renovated Club in Raleigh-Durham is set to open in late November 2016, and will offer additional seats, more accessible power and a new food and beverage area.
- A new Club expansion is coming to Newark in late 2016, including a redesigned bar and more food options.
