The Delta Sky Club network has opened the only carrier lounge at the recently transformed airport Kansas City International Airport (MCI).
MCI’s $1.5bn overhaul consolidated all airport operations into a state-of-the-art, 39-gate terminal. Customers at the new MCI will enjoy a completely revamped, fully accessible experience from kerb to gate, with a state-of-the-art lobby; a new, enlarged security checkpoint; local concession options; gates equipped with the most up-to-date technology; and more.
The Kansas City Club is the second in a string of lounge openings in the Midwest, with the new Chicago O’Hare Club opened in October 2022 and a third Minneapolis location planned for April 2023.
According to the airline, Kansas City’s airport transformation provided the perfect opportunity for Delta to grow its presence in the area, providing another touchpoint for Midwest customers and strengthening the airline’s relationship with the “City of Fountains.”
The 11,200 sq ft Delta Sky Club will hold nearly 200 guests, with seating options to accommodate travellers looking to work, socialise or relax pre-flight. The Kansas City lounge features two all-weather Sky Decks with views of the airfield. Customers can enjoy a premium bar, a full buffet, a curated art programme featuring regional artists and bathrooms stocked with Grown Alchemist products.
“The Delta Sky Club team is thrilled to welcome customers in Kansas City – our first new market in several years,” said Claude Roussel, managing director – Delta Sky Club. “We are proud to be a part of the new MCI, elevating this remarkable transformation with our signature lounge experience.”
Kansas City is a growing market for Delta Air Lines, the city’s largest premium global carrier. Delta operates daily service to all nine of its hubs from MCI. This spring and summer, Delta will add additional daily frequencies to Atlanta, Boston and Minneapolis.
