Fans of the Amex Centurion Lounge network will soon have an all-new space to enjoy.

As part of the LaGuardia redevelopment project, the airport’s newest building — the Terminal B Arrivals and Departures Hall — opened Saturday, 13 June. The old terminal, home to the original Centurion Lounge at LGA, is not operational as of Saturday.

Though all Amex lounges are currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the new Terminal B has a new Centurion Lounge. There’s no firm opening date yet, but in an interview with TPG, Rick Cotton, the executive director of the Port Authority, mentioned that “there will be an American Express lounge in the new concourse”.

Indeed, if you take a look at the signage in the new concourse, you’ll find the listing and location for the new lounge. Based on the map, it seems significantly larger than the current space.

The entrance to the lounge is currently undetectable to travelers, as it’s covered with wallpaper and doesn’t yet feature the Centurion’s signature blue door. The best news about the new lounge? It’s going to be located after security (whereas the original lounge was pre-security).

The new LGA location joins three other lounges under construction in Denver (DEN), London Heathrow (LHR) and New York-JFK. The latter two were scheduled to open in the first half of 2020, but the coronavirus has delayed the opening until the second half of the year.

Additionally, Amex recently announced that it is renovating its first-ever Centurion Lounge in Las Vegas, expanding the space by 50%. That project should be complete in 2021.
