Centurion Lounge for London

American Express is opening the 13th location within its signature Centurion airport lounge network in Heathrow’s Terminal 3 next year. It will be the first in Europe, and second outside the US.

Company officials say the development will offer “an exceptional level of luxury” including premium facilities and services for Platinum and Centurion Card holders plus “a bespoke offering specific to the UK”.

American Express senior vice-president for global loyalty and benefits Chris Cracchiolo said: “Both in business and their personal lives, our premium card members are living more globally, and we are committed to meeting their needs wherever they go.

“London has long been a top destination for our Platinum and Centurion Card holders so it made perfect sense to open our first Centurion Lounge in Europe at Heathrow.”

The 7,000sq ft lounge will feature amenities found across other locations including free food and drink, premium showers, access to high-speed wi-fi and private noise-buffering work stations.

Heathrow head of property John Arbuckle said: “We are proud to welcome Europe’s first Centurion Lounge, which will offer a unique and premium experience for Amex customers and a comfortable haven featuring the best of modern British hospitality.”

Access to the lounge will be free and exclusive for holders of Platinum cards and Centurion members.
