First Delta One Lounge debuts at New York JFK

Delta's largest lounge for Delta One guests-only has opened at T4

The Delta One Lounge at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport opened this week, setting a new standard of elevated service.

Located between Concourses A and B in Terminal 4, adjacent to the main security checkpoint, this first-of-its-kind Delta One Lounge is larger than any Delta Sky Club and offers a variety of experiences and amenities for the premium traveller, from fine dining to spa-like wellness treatments to valet services and more.

“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. “It’s a new era for Delta – this Lounge is raising the bar across the board, from the amenities to the food and beverage offerings to the level of personalised 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.”

The Lounge features nods to other noted locations throughout New York City: the premium bar features a standout Art Deco-inspired lighting fixture; the Bar Lounge ceiling and fluted glass nod to the gold leaf ceiling and chandeliers of Radio City Music Hall, while the white-marble counter Market and Bakery, is inspired by retro delicatessen food counters.

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

Just as JFK is a portal to the world, the Delta One Lounge features art that reflects the airport’s global reach. Take a stroll through the Lounge gallery, featuring artists from Europe, South Africa, India, Japan, Cuba and more.

A touch of high fashion

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 signature zigzag design of the Italian fashion house.

This new partnership with Missoni elevates Delta One like never before, weaving superior craftsmanship and high-end design into the finest details of your journey – both in flight and on the ground, with a host of opportunities ahead for the brands to continue this collaboration.

The Lounge features a 140-seat Brasserie restaurant delivering a three-course meal service, with dishes such as Hamachi crudo, steak tartare and lasagna Bolognese. Meanwhile, The Market and Bakery features seasonal culinary offerings plated for walk-up service.

Beverage cart service enables guests to enjoy premium hospitality without leaving their seat.

Guests wanting some R&R will find nine reservable relaxation pods with full-body massage chairs and nap chairs, treatments from Grown-Alchemist certified therapists, and more.

Adjacent to the wellness area, the Serenity Lounge provides a quiet, tranquil space designed for pre-flight peace of mind. Specialty lamp lighting in the Serenity Lounge mimics the light colours affecting the body’s circadian rhythms, helping their body get acclimated to the time zone to which you will be flying.

A Rejuvenation Bar offers refreshing, non-alcoholic beverages and fruit and herb-infused waters and juices.

For guests who have just landed there are also eight well-appointed shower suites, featuring towels, bathrobes and slippers, Grown Alchemist products, and more. Plus a valet attendant will steam and/or shine your shoes and return them while you shower.

Guests in do-not-disturb mode can take care of business in one of eight individual soundproof booths located in the Lounge, or borrow a second monitor to complete any last-minute work.

Enjoy views of the airfield from the Terrace, replete with regional, seasonally updated plants. This lush outdoor oasis with a retractable roof is designed to stimulate the senses (while calming the nervous system); enjoy it 365 days out of the year.

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

Other Delta One Lounges are in the works at Los Angeles and Boston Logan International will open later this year, expanding the end-to-end premium experience to more customers in more hubs.
