Delta unveils Great Lakes inspired Sky Club

Nature-inspired lounge debuts in Minneapolis-Saint Paul

Delta Air Lines has launched a new nature-inspired oasis on the upper level of the G Concourse at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) in the United States. While MSP may not be a major thoroughfare for Australian travellers, the new look Delta Sky Club certainly warrants a profile.

This is MSP’s third Club and adds a premium space to Delta’s lounge portfolio, making it the largest at Delta’s Minneapolis hub. The MSP-G Club is the second lounge opened this year, and the third successive new location in the Midwest (following Chicago and Kansas City).

With seating for more than 450, customers visiting MSP-G Club will have ample space whether they’re looking to work, socialise or absorb the views of the airfield.

Inspired by Minnesota’s designation as the “land of 10,000 lakes,” the MSP-G Club’s design concept features a rich colour palette evoking summer sunsets at the lake – earth tones like sage greens paired with warm copper and amber hues.

The Club includes a year-round, all-weather Sky Deck® with seating for 110 guests. This first-of-its kind Sky Deck is bookended by two completely open-air elements — one of which features a living plant wall—and is suffused with natural light streaming from the overhead skylight. Guests unwinding in this unique space can also enjoy a drink from one of the Club’s premium bars, located on the deck.

“We continue to raise the bar with every location we open, and the new MSP Club is no exception,” said Claude Roussel, Delta Sky Club – Managing Director. “Our goal was to create a space that reflects the natural beauty of the Great Lakes region, transporting and inspiring customers through the Club’s design, all while delivering a full suite of amenities and our signature hospitality.”

Additional amenities of the Club include:

  • Three kiosks for quick and easy self-check-in
  • A full buffet
  • Two premium bars
  • Three soundproof booths for quiet work.

Local flavours plated up

In addition to the regular menu rotation featuring fresh, locally sourced ingredients and a wide variety of cuisines, the MSP-G Club will highlight recipes from Bravo’s Top Chef alum Justin Sutherland as part of Delta Sky Club’s Local Flavour program. Local Flavour showcases hometown chefs on a quarterly rotating basis, highlighting some of their most popular recipes for visitors passing through.

Sutherland specialises in contemporary Southern cuisine and guests of the MSP-G Club will be able to enjoy his take on classics like chicken and andouille gumbo, shrimp and grits, pimento cheeseburger sliders and banana pudding through mid-July.

Delta Air Lines is MSP’s largest global carrier and this summer will operate over 330 peak-day flights to 120 destinations, with service across the globe to cities such as Amsterdam, Cancun, Paris, Keflavik, London, Montréal, Vancouver and more. Delta is also the only carrier providing nonstop service from MSP to Asia, with daily service to Seoul and Tokyo-Haneda.
