The Centurion Lounge Charlotte (CLT)

This new lounge is open from 5:30 am until 10 pm daily.

The Centurion Lounge Charlotte is conveniently located at the mezzanine level at the post-security intersection of Concourses D and E. Another exciting advantage of this lounge is that it’s accessible from every airport gate at CLT. After passing through security, you can head directly to the lounge before takeoff.

This is one of the largest Centurion Lounges to date and exceeds 13,000 square feet. That’s good news as Charlotte International Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports.

Key Features

The Charlotte location features several exciting amenities common to other Centurion Lounges:

  • Shower suites
  • Family room
  • High-speed WiFi
  • Personal workspaces
  • Bespoke cocktails by mixologist Jim Meehan

It’s possible to relax or finish a last-minute project before boarding time.

Like the other ten current locations, each Centurion Lounge has its own unique local traits. You can enjoy Southern-inspired cuisine from Charlotte-based chef Joe Kindred. Joe is known for his two award-winning restaurants in North Carolina.

This lounge also sports a custom mural from local artist Amanda Moody.
