It has been announced that American Express Centurion Lounges globally will be closing temporarily as of Saturday, March 21, 2020. We don’t yet know when the lounges will reopen.
Per an announcement on American Express’ website:
“As the health and safety of our Card Members and colleagues is our top priority, in light of the spread of COVID-19 we are temporarily closing all The Centurion® Lounge locations, starting on Saturday, March 21, 2020. American Express will provide notice here and on the Amex Mobile App when locations reopen.
We look forward to reopening our lounges and welcoming our Card Members back as soon as we can. We appreciate your understanding during this time and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”
This comes just weeks after the latest three Centurion Lounges opened, in Phoenix, Charlotte, and Los Angeles. At this point Amex has a total of a dozen Centurion Lounges around the globe — other locations include Dallas, Hong Kong, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New York LaGuardia, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle.
On top of that, a further four Centurion Lounges are expected to open in 2020 (though I wouldn’t be surprised to see the opening dates delayed).
