A brand new Amex Centurion Lounge location has just been revealed.
Centurion Lounge DCA opening late 2022
American Express has announced that it will open its 16th Centurion Lounge at Washington DC’s Reagan National Airport (DCA).
The new lounge is expected to open in late 2022, following the airport’s completion of Project Journey, a $1 billion capital improvement project. The lounge will be built from the ground up, with the entrance located in National Hall near Terminal B, after security.
While details of the lounge are limited as of now, it’s expected that the Centurion Lounge will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and airfield views. It will also feature special local touches, and signature amenities like a complimentary custom bar and food menu, premium restrooms and shower suites, high speed Wi-Fi, noise buffering workspaces, and more.

Centurion Lounges at SEA & SFO being expanded by late 2022
In addition to announcing an all-new Centurion Lounge, Amex has also announced the expansion of lounges in San Francisco and Seattle, with both projects expected to be completed by the end of 2022:
- The Centurion Lounge Seattle will triple in size to over 13,800 square feet and relocate to the mezzanine level of the Central Terminal
- The Centurion Lounge San Francisco will nearly double in size to 16,000 square feet, and will remain in Terminal 3; it will also feature a new seasonal menu, and new amenities like a second bar, a cafe area, additional restrooms, private phone rooms, and more private workspaces

By late 2022 we should see a new Centurion Lounge at DCA, as well as expanded Centurion Lounges at both SEA and SFO. At least that’s the claim as of now, though historically these projects almost always get delayed, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see timelines slip to 2023.
It’s always great to see Amex’s lounge network expand, as the lounges are in most cases significantly better than what you’ll otherwise find at airports. This is especially true at airports like DCA, which don’t otherwise have great lounges.
