THE CENTURION AIRPORT LOUNGES BY AMERICAN EXPRESS

November 19, 2014

The glamour that once defined air travel is steadily making a comeback with the revival of the airport lounge. With over 1,400 of these travel oases now open around the globe, the notion of exclusivity and luxury in an airport doesn’t seem as elusive as it once did, especially for those toting an American Express card.

With a goal to offer their customers the ultimate “destination between destinations,” American Express taking it up a notch with a slew of new airport lounges entitled The Centurion Lounges. It is a commanding name that sums up the idea of leadership and excellence, while also paying homage to their striking Roman mascot. These posh AMEX havens have been popping up all over the country, generating buzz in the terminals of New York’s LaGuardia International, Dallas Fort Worth, McCarran International in Las Vegas, and San Francisco International.

Each lounge is curated to perfection and designed with an overall hi-tech appeal that is as glamorous as it is functional. The creative force behind the project is none other than SUITE NY client Big Red Rooster; a Brand Strategy and Experience Design Firm that creates touch points, environments and services of tomorrow. The firm focused their efforts on rewarding members with five-star offerings that include high-speed WiFi, a computer bar, relaxation nooks, and Michelin ranked dining provided by the country’s top culinary talent. To complement such magnificent amenities, modern furnishings by top-tier designers occupy the space with pieces by BassamFellows, Hans J. Wegner, Jeff Vioski, and Lievore Altherr Molina. Contemporary, sophisticated, and undeniably chic, The Centurion Lounge puts the glamour back into air travel.
