Delta Sky Deck

A bygone era in air travel is returning.  Delta Air Lines is to open Sky Deck's, outdoor terraces at Atlanta and New York lounges.  In years past many airports offered this facility.  With the growth of international terrorism this was withdrawn.  The Delta feature is in a secure area.

“Sky Deck represents our continuing effort to offer Delta customers exclusive experiences and amenities they value.  The new outdoor terraces will do just that – provide distinctive spaces with unprecedented outdoor runway views at two of the most globally significant airports in the world”, said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President Marketing.

The new space in Atlanta will be adjacent to the Delta Sky Club in the international Concourse F and will be available this summer.  At New York JFK, the space will be a rooftop terrace at the club in the airline's new US$1.2bn expansion of Terminal 4, scheduled to open in late May. www.delta.com
