On September 27, 2018, the American Express Centurion Lounge at DFW got a 3,000 square foot upgrade. But it’s not just an expansion a traveler flying through Dallas-Fort Worth can enjoy. There are plenty of upgraded amenities too.

What’s new at the upgraded DFW lounge?

There are private telephone rooms, three shower suites, and a mother’s room in the now 12,500 square-foot space. It also relocated to Terminal D, right next to gate D12. That’s in addition to all the other amenities AmEx customers have come to expect.

There’s still a full bar, fine dining, spa therapies, workspaces, a family room, and plenty of TVs. This lounge, in one of the most visited airports in the world, is the first of several new lounges opening in 2019 in JFK, Denver, and L.A. It’s open to Centurion and Platinum card members and is part of their Global Lounge Collection.

How can I get access to the American Express Centurion Lounge?

According to American Express, The Platinum Card® from American Express provides access to the most airport lounges in the world compared to other travel credit cards. Cardmembers can find a lounge in the 500+ cities available on the Global Lounge Collection Website.

The Platinum card comes with an annual fee of $550 (See Rates & Fees), but perks like $200 airline fee and Uber credits are included. New cardmembers can earn 75,000 bonus Membership Rewards® Points after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 6 months of account opening. Cardholders also earn 10x points on eligible purchases at U.S. gas stations and U.S. supermarkets, up to $15,000 in combined purchases, during your first 6 months of card membership.

If you don’t have a Centurion membership or American Express Platinum Card, you can’t purchase a day pass with programs like Priority Pass. However, if you are traveling with a member or cardholder, they can purchase a guest pass for $50. It will get you access to 1,200 lounges around the world including Delta Sky Clubs, Priority Pass Select, and Airspace Lounges, to name a few.

The new American Express Centurion Lounge is certainly an upgrade for those with the Platinum card in their pocket. Plus, it is a modern, welcome addition to DFW. Hopefully, the expanded space will help with the overcrowded, ever-popular Centurion lounges.
