Austin airport getting Delta Sky Club location


Delta Air Lines will open a Sky Club location at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in 2019.

The members-only club, accessible to Delta passengers who either pay an annual fee or fly a certain number of miles each year, will be located near Delta’s gates at the airport, the carrier said.

Spanning about 9,000 square feet, Austin’s Sky Club location will offer food and drinks from local providers, as well as a complimentary bar.

There will be free WiFi, artwork will be from regional artists and a covered outdoor patio will be open year-round.

“From our strong operational performance to adding new routes, Delta is committed to serving the residents and business community of Austin,” Erik Snell, Delta’s vice president for operations and customer center, said in a written statement. “As a part of the airline’s efforts to enhance customers’ experience in Austin, this club will give guests a new space where they can relax during their travel.”

Other cities where Delta Sky Clubs are located include Newark, N.J.; Minneapolis; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Atlanta; and Seattle.
