American Airlines says it is beginning the most expansive lounge makeover in the airline’s history. The Admirals Club lounges at Phoenix Sky Harbor International (IATA: PHX) and São Paulo International (GRU) airports, both closed for construction, will lead the way for the modern makeover.
Fernand Fernandez, American’s Vice President – Global Marketing commented: “In the future, when our customers see an Admirals Club sign anywhere in the world, they’ll know they’ll find a reliable, modern space where they can charge their devices, grab a bite to eat, get caught up on work or unplug from the world around them. Our goal is to create spaces that are more in line with how people live and spend their time today.”
The airline says its lounges will receive a stylish, consistent look designed for today’s connected travellers over several years.
Entrances to the renovated clubs will feature the American Airlines logo on sleek, white glass and their interiors are described as having a “contemporary style overhaul with a mix of tan and gray tones and accents of rich red, along with lighting and other elements that blend in white oak wood and stainless steel.”
American will start construction on clubs in Miami, New York (JFK), Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles this year, with clubs in Chicago, London and other key cities entering the renovation phase in the coming years. Ultimately, the makeover will touch all of American’s lounges.
