Delta Air Lines Opens New JFK Delta One Lounge

DALLAS — Delta Air Lines (DL) opened its new Delta One Lounge at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) this week. 

The lounge is the first of its kind and is larger than any Delta Sky Club. According to the airline, it offers a variety of experiences and amenities for the premium traveler.

The Delta One Lounge is Delta’s attempt to deliver an end-to-end premium experience, from curb to claim.

The experience starts at check-in. Located on the right-hand side of the main arrivals level on Terminal 4, Delta One customers are greeted by a team of Elite Service agents providing white-glove service, with warm towels and light refreshments on offer. The check-in area will feature a private TSA screening lane for added exclusivity this fall.

The Delta One Lounge is located between Concourses A and B in Terminal 4, adjacent to the main security checkpoint. The 39,000-plus-square-foot lounge offers a variety of experiences and amenities for the premium traveler, including fine dining, spa-like wellness treatments, and valet services.

The lounge enables Delta One ticketholders to curate their lounge experience based on their travel day.

A Memorable Experience

"Our teams have spared no detail to ensure Delta One Lounge guests receive a truly memorable experience," said Claude Roussel, Vice President – Delta Sky Clubs and Lounge Experience. 

"This Lounge is raising the bar across the board, from the amenities to the food and beverage offerings to the level of personalized service. We want our guests to feel the difference here; moreover, we want them to feel welcomed and valued from the moment they step through the door."

An NYC Experience

The Lounge features nods to other noted locations throughout the Big Apple, with curated surprises for New Yorkers and design enthusiasts alike.

The premium bar serves elevated takes on classic cocktails and features a standout Art Deco-inspired lighting fixture: the Bar Lounge ceiling and fluted glass nod to the gold leaf ceiling and Radio City Music Hall chandeliers.

The white marble counter in Market and Bakery is inspired by retro delicatessen food counters.

The iconic overlapping strands of the Brooklyn Bridge inspired the suspended lighting fixture in the dining room. Fan-shaped marble mosaic tiles in the Market dining area pay tribute to famed New York brasseries, while the penny-round ceiling over the food counter is a hat-tip to the original JFK terminal.

Other Amenities

Exhibits in the Lounge gallery feature artists from Europe, South Africa, India, Japan, Cuba, and more.

The attempt is to include unique design touches to create a space like no other: one that is modern while rooted in the city's past.

Delta’s recently announced onboard partnership with Missoni is also reflected in the Lounge, with design touches like accent pillows, vases, and coffee table books bearing the Italian fashion house's signature zigzag design.
