Delta Sky Club Opens Only Airline Lounge in Revamped Kansas City Airport

The Delta Sky Club network is deepening its Midwest ties with the opening of its Kansas City International Airport (MCI) lounge on Tuesday. It is the only carrier lounge at the recently transformed airport. 

MCI’s $1.5 billion overhaul consolidated all airport operations into one 39-gate terminal. Customers at the new MCI will enjoy a completely revamped, fully accessible experience from curb to gate, with an upgraded lobby; a new, enlarged security checkpoint; local concession options; gates equipped with the most up-to-date technology; and more. 

The Kansas City Club is the second in a string of lounge openings in the Midwest, with the new Chicago O’Hare Club opened in October 2022 and a third Minneapolis location planned for April 2023. The remainder of 2023 will be ambitious for Delta Sky Club, with eight total planned Club openings and expansions. Kansas City’s airport transformation provided an opportunity for Delta to grow its presence in the area, offering another touchpoint for Midwest customers and strengthening the airline’s relationship with the “City of Fountains.” 

The 11,200-square-foot Delta Sky Club will hold nearly 200 guests, with seating options to accommodate travelers looking to work, socialize or simply relax pre-flight. The Kansas City lounge, additionally, has not one but two all-weather Sky Decks with views of the airfield. Customers can enjoy a premium bar, a full buffet, a curated art program featuring regional artists and bathrooms stocked with premium Grown Alchemist products.  

Kansas City is a growing market for Delta Air Lines, the city’s largest premium global carrier. Delta operates daily service to all nine of its hubs from MCI.  

This spring and summer, Delta will add additional daily frequencies to Atlanta, Boston and Minneapolis.
