Located on the departures level between T2 and T3 of Los Angeles International Airport, the new Delta Sky Club at LAX features premium design and awe-inspiring views and an unparalleled lounge experience for customers with Club access.

Claude Roussel, Managing Director – Delta Sky Club says, “Whether guests visit the new Delta Sky Club to dine, work or simply enjoy the views, they’ll find much to love in this world-class lounge for a world-class airport.”
At over 2,785 square metres, the Delta Sky Club at LAX Sky Way is one of the largest in the Delta network, with ample space for guests to retreat, relax and recharge.
Guests can check themselves into the lounge at one of five self-service kiosk stations. The kiosks are designed for ease of use and will speed up Club access for guests. (The larger of the two Delta Sky Clubs on T2 will remain open; with both Clubs operational, approximately 800 guests will be able to enjoy the lounges simultaneously.)
Once checked in, guests will ascend a staircase or escalators, passing beneath dazzling ceiling fixtures modeled after ocean waves before arriving at the custom wood-screened area that marks the Club’s entrance.
The lounge is outfitted with seating options to accommodate a wide variety of travelers, including private phone booths for quiet work and theatre-style seating for viewing the media wall. Club restroom amenities have been optimised for guest comfort and privacy and include a nursing room, oversized family restrooms and eight spacious showers managed via a virtual queuing system.
Throughout the Club are hidden gems designed to delight. One such gem is the Coffee Grotto, a nook that offers a glamorous peek into the ambience of Hollywood’s Golden Age with an exquisite mosaic mural featuring glass tiles imported from Italy.
The Gallery at LAX features pieces curated through Delta Sky Club’s art program and include digital creations, sculpture and large-scale mixed media works featuring local L.A. artists.
The crown jewel of the Club is the Sky Deck, a year-round, all-weather terrace where guests can enjoy drinks from the premium bar and panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills.
Throughout the lounge, guests can enjoy multiple food buffet and beverage centers that feature a seasonally inspired selection of fresh items, with options for dining in and quick snacks for customers on the go.
In addition to the regular menu rotation, the Club will feature special food and beverage programming that shines a spotlight on local makers and restaurant talent. Through the Fresh Farm program, Delta partners with local artisans to highlight handcrafted, regionally made food and beverage products in a weekly activation similar to a farmer’s market pop-up.
Beginning 1 June, Delta Sky Club’s Local Flavor program will give customers a taste of regional cuisine through its partnership with emerging local chefs. Local Flavor showcases hometown chefs on a quarterly rotating basis, highlighting some of their most popular recipes for visitors passing through. The first featured Local Flavor chef at the new LAX Delta Sky Club is Akira Back, a Michelin Star chef known for his creative interpretations of Asian cuisine with an American influence.
