American Express Platinum and Centurion Card Admirals Club Access

American Express and American Airlines have paired to offer Platinum Card and Centurion members access to the airline’s 44 Admiral Club lounges worldwide. This move expands the current American Express Airport Club Access Program for Platinum and Centurion Cards, which previously provided Card members with complimentary access to more than 125 participating partner clubs when traveling on the partner airline.

In addition to access to the American Airlines Admirals Club, The Airport Club Access Program allows Card members access to Continental Airlines Presidents Club, Delta Crown Room Club, and Northwest Airlines WorldClubs. That should pretty much cover the bulk of the major airports in the United States. To take advantage of this benefit, Card members should present the club representative with their Platinum or Centurion Card, a ticket valid for same-day travel on the corresponding airline that
is operating the flight, and a government-issued ID. So you do have to fly that particular airline to get access to the club. Up to two traveling companions may join you as guests in the lounges as well.

“Our Card members are passionate about travel and enjoy receiving access and benefits through their American Express(R) Cards that enhance their experiences, such as our popular Airport Club Access Program,” said Simon Kahn, vice president, Platinum and Centurion Product Management. “American Airlines is a wonderful addition to the program, adding yet another valuable reason to carry the Platinum or Centurion Cards.”

Admirals Club amenities include the following: Conference rooms, High-speed Wi-Fi access at all domestic locations through T-Mobile, Showers, Cyber cafe, Lenovo PCs with complimentary high-speed Internet access, Complimentary light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, Food for purchase and bar services, Children’s room, Music rooms at LAX, MIA D and DFW A locations and Complimentary Wi-Fi in most international lounges.
