American Express is closing all Centurion Lounge locations starting Saturday, March 21.
As the health and safety of our Card Members and colleagues is our top priority, in light of the spread of COVID-19 we are temporarily closing all The Centurion® Lounge locations, starting on Saturday, March 21, 2020. American Express will provide notice here and on the Amex Mobile App when locations reopen.
We look forward to reopening our lounges and welcoming our Card Members back as soon as we can. We appreciate your understanding during this time and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
All Centurion Lounge locations are included in this decision: Dallas Fort-Worth, Las Vegas, Miami, New York LaGuardia, San Francisco, Seattle, Houston, Philadelphia, Hong Kong, LAX, Phoenix and Charlotte. LAX only opened on March 9.
American Express Centurion Lounge Hong Kong
It actually seems odd to me to close Hong Kong at this point, when they didn’t do so at the start of the spread and only on March 5. While the primary place most people go to track the spread of coronavirus has started lumping Hong Kong in with mainland China recently, and while it was one of the places folks were initially worried about, the virus was largely contained there from the start. Indeed, people fled to Europe and have been trying to get back to avoid COVID-19.
