American Express has partnered with Escape lounges to offer ‘Centurion Studio’ lounges which are smaller spaces with quality food and beverage offerings. Currently they are 12 Centurion Studios in 10 airports and a new one is coming to the Fort Lauderdale airport in terminal 3.
Terminal 3 (the ‘Purple Terminal’) is home to American Airlines and JetBlue along with Avelo, Azul, and Air Transat and is connected to Terminal 4 via moving walkway.
