If you enjoy kicking back in private airport lounges, then you’re going to have to kick in a little more to use Delta’s Sky Club Lounges. Beginning March 1, the annual membership for Delta’s Sky Club Lounge is going up by $50 and joint memberships are increasing by $100.
For flyers that don’t have elite status, the annual membership for lounge access will not change and will continue to be $450, but for joint access will increase to $700 from $650.
Depending on the Elite membership level frequent flyers belong to, the price increases are:
Silver Medallion: $450 from $400 / $700 from $600
Gold Medallion: $400 from $350 / $650 from $550
Platinum Medallion: $350 from $300 / $600 from $500
Diamond Medallion: $350 from $300 / $600 from $500
Frequent flyer award points can be used to pay for Sky Club membership that includes WiFi, cocktails and a place to relax or catch up on work before take off. Soon members will also be able to enjoy two new outdoor terrace lounges that Delta (The Points Guys covers more on that here) is investing in with Architectural Digest. The new “sky decks” will be unveiled in May at New York’s JFK airport as part of a $1.2 billion reconstruction of Delta’s new terminal and the second location will be revealed in Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport this summer.
