Last month I broke the news, based on an Austin city permit that Chase would be opening a space in the Austin airport. Then I shared further details that it would be an indoor-outdoor space next to the Delta Sky Club taking over the public outdoor deck, opening in March and likely offering grab and go food.
Chase is now offering more details on the space. The “Sapphire Terrace” will open March 20.
- Exclusive for Sapphire Reserve cardmembers departing from Austin (no access on arrival)
- Offering complimentary local beverages (“like cider from Austin Eastciders and beer from (512) Brewing Company as well as non-alcoholic beverages” and grab-and-go food items.
- Featuring “shuffleboard, a giveaway, and more” and “artwork from Austin artist and muralist Rex Hamilton that’s inspired by the vibrant colors and native flowers of Texas.”
Sapphire Reserve cardmembers will be eligible to bring two guests. The space will be open daily 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Here’s the current outdoor space near gate 1 that this ‘Sapphire Terrace’ is replacing.
This is in contrast to Sapphire lounges, that are being opened in conjunction with Airport Dimensions (which operates The Club lounges and is owned by the same company as Priority Pass) though I wouldn’t be surprised to see Chase open one of those into space that should become available in the airport over the next few years.
