One of the most luxurious lounge networks is adding a new location. In early 2019, The Centurion Lounge network opens its 10th location at New York-John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport. This location will also be the largest Centurion Lounge to date.

Where is the JFK Centurion Lounge

The JFK lounge will be the second Centurion location in New York with the other lounge located at La Guardia (LGA).

At one of the busiest airports in the world, the new lounge will be located on the 4th-floor Departures level in Terminal 4 shortly after the security gate.

If you fly out of or connect through JFK, you most likely pass through Terminal 4 at some point because it handles 1/3 of the airport’s total passenger traffic and handles 21 million passengers every year! Over half of these passengers are international travelers flying on some of the largest international airlines:

  • AerLingus
  • Emirates
  • Etihad
  • JetBlue
  • Singapore Airlines
  • Virgin Atlantic

In addition to relaxing at a posh lounge, you can also use transfer your Membership Rewards points to one of the Membership Rewards travel partners to get a free award flight as well!

JFK Centurion Lounge Amenities

Below is only a partial list of the total amenities available as more details will be released as the grand opening approaches.

This Centurion Lounge will feature:

  • 15,000 square feet across two levels
  • Spectacular airfield views
  • Complimentary custom food and bar menu
  • Premium restrooms and shower suites
  • Noise-buffering workspaces with high-speed WI-FI

Additional amenities will be announced closer to the grand opening of The Centurion Lounge.

If you have ever visited a Centurion Lounge, you know how they raise the bar of expectations compared to the airline lounge networks. With another location in the portfolio, making the effort to visit a Centurion Lounge is well worth it.
