American Express to open Centurion Lounges at Hong Kong and Philadelphia airports

Financial services firm American Express has unveiled its plans to open two of its signature airport lounges in new locations at Hong Kong and Philadelphia international airports. The Hong Kong lounge will mark the first Centurion Lounge in Asia, and Philadelphia, opening in late October, marks the eighth US location.

The Centurion Lounge is part of American Express’s Global Lounge Collection, which provides Platinum Card and Centurion Members with access to more than 1,100 lounges across 120 countries.

The Centurion Lounge in Hong Kong International Airport is located in Terminal 1 and covers approximately 8,000ft². Amenities include a premium buffet, a complimentary full bar with custom cocktails, a meeting room, a workspace outfitted with a computer bar, a private shower suite, and an à la carte menu designed by Michelin star chef Lau Yiu Fai of Yan Toh Heen at the InterContinental Hong Kong.

Chef Lau’s menu will offer travelers Cantonese dishes such as baked pork in puff pastry, crispy spring rolls with kimchi and pork, crispy fresh prawns with black truffles, braised wagyu beef cheek and turnip, barbecued pork with honey and steamed rice, and baked egg tartlettes with bird’s nest, among others.

In the coming weeks, American Express will also open a new 6,300ft² Centurion Lounge located in Terminal A West at Philadelphia International Airport in Pennsylvania. The lounge will boast an Israeli-inspired food menu designed by four-time James Beard Award winner, chef Michael Solomonov. It will also feature dedicated workspaces, power outlets, private phone areas, comfortable seating and access to high-speed wi-fi.

Solomonov said, “We are extremely honored to be a part of the American Express Centurion Lounge family and excited to help make their newest lounge an oasis of hospitality for Philadelphia travelers. It’s such an exciting time to be a Philadelphian, and I am grateful for the opportunity to show visitors to our historic town what the City of Brotherly Love is all about.”
