More than two years in the making, Delta announced its new International Sky Club is now open at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Haneda’s first and only club operated by a U.S. airline, this new addition spans more than 9,300 square feet and will offer business and leisure travelers a luxurious option on their next layover.
“We’ve been looking forward to this day for years,” Managing Director of Delta Sky Club Claude Roussel said in a statement around the news. “Bringing the signature Delta Sky Club experience to Haneda as we continue to grow our network of premium, one-of-a-kind lounges is a huge moment for our Asia-Pacific partners, and all future Haneda Club customers.”
Located on the fifth floor of Terminal 3, Sky Club members and guests of the club will have access to unlimited Wi-Fi along with a range of seating options from private booths and lounge chairs , almost all of which come with their own power outlets.
With elegant design touches that are said to celebrate Japanese culture, the curated collection of artwork and thoughtful interiors are reflective of traditional Japanese patterns and textures, Delta said.
As far as food and beverage options go, The Club features a premium bar serving seasonal cocktails along with an assortment of wines, beers, spirits and wide variety of Japanese sake all of which are complimentary. A specialty made-to-order noodle bar staffed by a dedicated chef will provide a taste of the Japanese cuisine and is sure to be a highlight here. Of course a buffet bar serving both international and Asian-inspired dishes will also be available.
As travel in and around Japan continues to roll-out in phases, Delta’s plans to open their new Sky Lounge was originally slated for the summer of 2020 ahead of the Olympic games. The opening in Haneda will mark Delta Sky Club’s third new lounge opening this year. The airline’s two largest clubs located at Terminal C at New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport opened this spring.
Five premium shower rooms will also be available via virtual queuing system, but the real piece de resistance here are the expansive floor to ceiling windows that provide panoramic views of the Tokyo’s famous city skyline and, on clear days, a very distant view of Mount Fuji.
