Chase Will Open Airport Lounges In San Diego, New York, Boston And Hong Kong

Earlier this year we learned that Chase is launching its own airport lounge network in collaboration with Airport Dimensions, a Collinson company which brings you Priority Pass and The Club lounges.

We now know about 4 lounges in the pipeline:

  • New York LaGuardia Airport Terminal B
  • Boston Terminal B-C Connector
  • San Diego Terminal 2 West
  • Hong Kong Gate 40

News about the San Diego lounge is new, first reported by Chris Dong at The Points Guy. Chase beat out American Express and Escape, Plaza Premium Group, and Aspire to build this lounge, expected to open in 2023 between gates 46 and 47.

Reportedly these lounges will be accessible via Priority Pass, which would suggest that premium cardmembers from American Express, Capital One and Citibank would have access as well. Odd.

While some The Club lounges are aesthetically appealing – such as the one in the new New Orleans terminal – Airport Dimensions isn’t known for high-end lounge experiences. It’ll be interesting to see how the partnership delivers an experience comparable to Centurion and Capital One lounges given such broad access policies that have been reported elsewhere. At the same time it’s also hard to imagine Chase being willing to deliver an inferior experience. Perhaps access rules will tighten before actual launch to make that sustainable.

  1. Chase is the credit card for United which coincidentally (or not) utilizes that part of the terminal in San Diego. Wondering if there will be a partnership of some sort with United ? Hmm

  2. Counting on Chase to make sure these lounges are safe spaces for all, especially the underrepresented groups in air travel. Remember, travel is a human activity and shouldn’t be dominated by a single race. Yet today’s lounges are, in the words of Ice Cube’s son in the movie “Long Shot,” very…bright.

  3. Have any of the credit card companies ever heard of O’Hare Int’l Airport? Why are we continually overlooked? I can only eat so much guac in the AAdmirals lounge.

  4. ” it’s also hard to imagine Chase being willing to deliver an inferior experience.”

    Really? That’s pretty easy for me to imagine. I’ve been in plenty of “The Club” and “Priority Pass” lounges that were not much better than hanging out at the gate.

    You need a better imagination.
