Two months ago Chase announced its own airport lounge network just as Capital One begins opening its own airport lounges, following in the footsteps of American Express with its Centurion lounge network.
They shared at the time that they’d offer “a fresh approach to the lounge experience with locations to be announced in select markets over time” and that the first location would be 12,000 square feet in Boston in the Terminal B-C connector including showers, rest and wellness areas, and a family room.
Now we’re learning a little bit more. The first three locations of “Chase Sapphire Lounge® by The Club” will be,
- New York LaGuardia
- Hong Kong
The Club, New Orleans
This is a collaboration with Airport Dimensions, a Collinson company which brings us Priority Pass and The Club airport lounges already. So these may be branded versions of The Club, which are nice enough spaces (the newer ones anyway) but often light on the food. Perhaps the Chase element will lead to improvements.
However, as first reported by Dan’s Deals, the lounges will be accessible to Sapphire Reserve cardmembers as well as Priority Pass cardholders< so presumably American Express Platinum cardholders will ironically have access to Chase lounges, since they can opt into a Priority Pass card.
