6 of the most luxurious airport lounges every Platinum Card Member has unlimited access to

When you have an American Express Platinum Card, over 1,200 airport lounges around the world will welcome you as part of your Card Membership. It’s just one of the fantastic perks of Platinum Card® Membership1. Just remember to bring your Priority Pass membership card though, as Priority Pass lounges require guests to show them for entry. Enrollment in Priority Pass is required.

Plaza Premium Lounge

Heathrow Airport– Terminal 2

London, United Kingdom

 

Upon entering this lounge you immediately feel a calming welcome, as its soothing décor whisks you away from the noise and bustle of Britain’s busiest airport. Plush, Asian-inspired themes are the aesthetic for the interior and each of its five private resting suites too – with luxury showers nearby to freshen up. There’s also a spa offering nine pre-flight ‘power treatments’. Once you’re done relaxing, a superb (complimentary) food offering – including champagne and tapas bars – awaits. 

 

The clincher: Hire a resting suite for as little as $80 – perfect for long layovers.

Insider’s note: Run by Plaza Premium – Platinum Card Members have unlimited access.1

American Express Centurion Lounge

Dallas Fort Worth Airport– Terminal D

Dallas, Texas

 

American Express Centurion lounges all offer modern, chic spaces where you can unwind before your flight. This one, in Dallas, is particularly noteworthy as it offers complimentary spa treatments on arrival, alongside a luxury shower suite. Expect the usual perks too: high-speed Wi-Fi, a premium bar,2 dedicated workspaces and, of course, unlimited food which, by the way, is Tex-Mex cuisine designed by award-winning chef Dean Fearing.

 

The clincher: Free 15-minute spa treatments are the perfect pick-me-up.

Insider’s note: Platinum Card Members get complimentary entry, plus two free guests.1

American Express Centurion Lounge Dallas
Delta Skyclub Atlanta

Delta SkyClub

Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – Concourse F

Atlanta, Georgia  

 

Delta’s Atlanta hub plays host to its most impressive and most popular SkyClub. Open, modern and airy, it overlooks the runway inside and out. This lounge has a Sky Deck, and on a sunny day, it’s more hip hotel rooftop than airport lounge. There are eight showers, with towels, boutique toiletries and even shaving kits, upon request. And, of course, it has a large sleeping room too for long layovers, alongside all the standard complimentary bits you’d expect, from Wi-Fi to food and drink.

 

The clincher: Without a doubt, the Sky Deck. Watching aircraft land and depart from a beautiful, light-flooded space beats hunkering down in a coffee house.

Insider’s note: Run by Delta Airlines – free for Platinum Card Members. Guests may incur additional charges.1

American Express Centurion Lounge

Hong Kong International Airport – Terminal 1

Hong Kong, China  

 

The newest Centurion Lounge of our selection, this one is bold, modern and equipped with excellent perks. There’s a living plant wall at reception before you head into possibly the coolest (and most striking) premium bar in any airport lounge. With a cocktail menu designed by Jim Meehan (Landmark Mandarin Oriental, HK) to match, the space certainly has a hip hotel feel. There’s also locally inspired food, showers, the usual mags, papers and work facilities, plus a custom ‘scent’ designed to make the lounge smell of luxury, too. Yes, you read that right.

 

The clincher: The cocktail list is on point and perhaps the best we’ve seen of all the lounges available.

Insider’s note: Part of the Centurion lounge network – Platinum Card Members get unlimited entry, plus two complimentary guests.1

American Express Centurion Lounge Hong Kong
Aspire Lounge Zurich

Aspire Lounge

Zurich Airport – Midfield Terminal Zurich, Switzerland

 

Bright, fresh and flooded with light, the Aspire Lounge at Zurich embodies the design simplicity and rejuvenating beauty for which Switzerland is famous. Quiet and secluded, it’s an airport oasis that offers all the usual perks, from free food to high-speed Wi-Fi. Given that Switzerland tends to be quite expensive, this is a welcome haven to refresh and refuel while you wait to board.

 

The clincher: The food is excellent, and complimentary, with high standards maintained through the day. We understand that the grilled Swiss cheese sandwich is a must-do.

Insider’s note: Part of a Priority Pass membership (free enrolment for Platinum Card Members) – unlimited entry for Platinum Card Members, plus two complimentary guests.1

Almost@Home Lounge

Helsinki Airport – Terminal 2

Helsinki, Finland  

 

As you might have guessed, this lounge has been designed to make you feel at home – and it’s quite incredible. There’s a communal ‘kitchen’ with actual cutlery drawers and an island, plus a shared dining table nearby. There are a couple of computers and a PS4. There’s also a brilliantly designed ‘living room’ with a bookcase, armchairs and flat screen TV. Some of the furniture is actually second-hand, to contribute to that ‘lived-in’ feel. There are Scandi snacks and hot food on offer, plus a free beer pump (spirits are charged extra)2. It certainly lives up to its name which, in the middle of a bustling airport, is quite a feat.

 

The clincher: The design. Grab a paper, a drink and put your feet up in the living room.

Insider’s note: Part of a Priority Pass membership (free enrolment for Platinum Card Members) – unlimited entry for Platinum members, plus two complimentary guests.1
