On Tuesday, February 28, 2023, Delta will be opening a Sky Club at Kansas City Airport (MCI), making it the first lounge to open in the newly transformed airport.

Basics of the new Delta Sky Club Kansas City
The new Delta Sky Club Kansas City is roughly 11,200 square feet, with a capacity for nearly 200 guests, and a variety of seating options to accommodate a wide variety of travelers. The new lounge includes a bar, buffet, and two all-weather Sky Decks with views of the airfield, which is always an awesome feature. The bathrooms in the lounge are also stocked with Grown Alchemist products.
The lounge is located in the center of the new terminal, and will be open daily from 4:15AM until 6:30PM. Below are some pictures that Delta has provided of the new lounge.
While it’s always great to see more lounge capacity, it’s especially cool to see a lounge open at a new airport that otherwise lacks lounges. This is Delta’s first Sky Club at a new airport in several years (as opposed to adding Sky Clubs to airports that already have them).
See this post for Delta Sky Club access policies. In addition to being open to select premium passengers and members, Sky Clubs can also be accessed with The Platinum Card® from American Express (review) and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express (review).
Kansas City Airport’s new terminal
The new Delta Sky Club is made possible thanks to Kansas City Airport’s transformation. The airport has undergone a $1.5 billion makeover, whereby all airport operations have been consolidated in a new 39-gate terminal.
The new terminal features a revamped, fully accessible experience from curb to gate, a new lobby, a new and enlarged security checkpoint, local concessions, gates with updated technology, and more.
The Delta Sky Club Kansas City will be opening shortly, coinciding with the opening of the new terminal at Kansas City Airport. It’s exciting to see Kansas City Airport being totally transformed, and this new lounge looks fantastic.
Anyone plan on checking out the Delta Sky Club Kansas City soon?
