Now open! Sky Club and Admirals Club welcoming passengers again
Travelers now have two more options to help pass the time while they wait for their flight at Miami International Airport. Delta Air Lines and American Airlines have recently reopened their lounges, and with new features to help keep passengers and employees safe.
The Delta Sky Club at MIA’s South Terminal, located near gate H3 and accessible from concourses H and J, re-opened on July 22. Passengers can expect a “touchless” experience from the moment they step through the doors. American Express Card Members and existing Sky Club members can check-in using the MyWallet in the Fly Delta App.
Plexiglass partitions have been installed at check-in, in the bar area, and even between café tables – making it clear to see the steps they have taken to help stop the spread of germs. Hand sanitizer dispensers can be found throughout the lounge in high-traffic area and food style buffets now offer grab-and-go options.
The Sky Club has limited capacity and blocked seats to ensure passengers can practice safe social distancing. Families even have their own seating area, so they can stay together. Floor decal markings can also be found in common areas to remind guests about maintaining extra space.
The lounge’s high touchpoint areas are constantly being cleaned throughout the day, and all glassware is sanitized using high-temperature industrial dishwashers. In addition, the lounge is cleaned nightly with a high-grade electrostatic spray that seeks out and clings to all surfaces.
In June, American Airlines also reopened its Admirals Club lounge near gate D30 in MIA’s North Terminal. Before opening its door, the lounge received several to reinforce the well-being of customers and employees.
Health and well-being improvements can be seen throughout the lounge. Plexiglass shields now welcomes passengers at reception and service desks. Signage and floor decals remind customers to practice safe social distancing. Passengers can enjoy pre-packaged snacks and a full-service bar with complementary and premium beverages. AA has even added foot-operated door openers to enable touchless operation of restroom doors. Customers can also find hand sanitizer stations at the lounge.
With additional airlines scheduling their return to MIA in the coming months, more lounge re-openings may be on the horizon as well.
