Delta Just Opened Its Only International Sky Club Lounge in Tokyo

The Atlanta-based airline’s highly anticipated new Sky Club at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) officially welcomed its first guests on Friday, some two years after its planned opening.

The lounge is located in Terminal 3 of Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, where construction was originally scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020 but was delayed by the pandemic.

The brand new lounge, the only one at the airport operated by a U.S. airline, represents Delta’s international lounge expansion.

“We’ve been looking forward to this day for years,” Claude Roussel, the managing director of Delta Sky Clubs, said in a statement. “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.”

Haneda is the third new lounge for Delta Sky Club this year. The two largest clubs, in Terminal C at LaGuardia Airport in New York and Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport, both opened this spring.

The completion of the premium area completes Delta’s service transition from Tokyo’s Narita Airport to Haneda Airport, which is more conveniently located and preferred by business travelers.

Delta Sky Club staff are ready to make the new lounge available to travelers from around the world as Japan gradually resumes accepting international flights.

Within the club’s more than 9,000 square feet, travelers will find a premium bar, a buffet of food influenced by both foreign and Asian cuisines, electrical outlets at nearly every seat, high-speed Wi-Fi and booths for private work. There are five showers for those who need to freshen up before a long flight.

Delta says the lounge also offers breathtaking views of the airport, the Tokyo skyline and, on a clear day, Mount Fuji itself.
