Business Travel 101: Delta Sky Club

More than a place to relax while waiting for a flight, Delta Sky Club is a business traveler-friendly lounge offering a host of amenities.

Where’s the best place to hang out before a flight? An airport lounge, of course. A comfortable alternative to the gate, lounges like Delta Sky Club greet travelers with cocktails, snacks, and a reliable WiFi connection.

A lounge membership is no insignificant monetary commitment, and, as such, you want to make sure you’ve got one that fits your needs. Here, we’ll examine the Delta Air Lines lounge – Delta Sky Club – for business travel.

Benefits

In Delta Sky Club, members have access to a variety of benefits, many of which will pique the interest of road warriors. At a glance, business amenities include:

  • Free WiFi
  • Conference rooms
  • Printers and other tech equipment in some locations

For anyone who’s had to wrap up projects while traveling or take phone calls on the go, the above perks probably sound pretty good. Yet productivity isn’t all that business travelers strive for — health and wellness resources are equally important to frequent travelers. So you’ll also be delighted to find the following in Delta Sky Club:

  • Light foods
  • Refreshing beverages
  • Showers (including toiletries and towels) in some locations

Their menu is pretty impressive (and nutritional), with cereals, fruits and veggies, and soups and salads, dominating breakfast, lunch, and snack choices. Plus, if you’ve recently visited the airport gym, you’ll be grateful for shower access.

For those who find themselves in Delta Sky Club with no pressing matters haunting them, then take advantage of the remaining benefits:

  • Satellite TV
  • A bar
  • Customer service reps to assist with questions or bookings

Accessibility

From annual memberships to loyalty rewards, there are an array of ways to access Delta Sky Club:

  • Fare Types: If you’re flying first or business class with Delta One or Skyteam, you may have lounge access between flights when traveling internationally.
  • Loyalty Rewards: If you’ve reached Diamond Medallion status of the Delta SkyMiles loyalty program, you can opt for a Sky Club membership as one of your choice benefits. Or, if you qualify as a Skyteam Elite Plus member, you may also have lounge access on select flights.
  • Memberships: Simply purchase an Individual or Executive Delta Sky Club membership for annual access. The main difference between the two is guest access — Executive members get up to two guests for a heftier fee. Single Visit passes are also available for purchase.
  • Partner Lounges: Through your Delta Sky Club membership, you might have access to partner lounges like Virgin Australia.
  • Credit Cards: If you have a Delta Reserve card, Gold or Platinum Delta SkyMiles card, or Platinum or Centurion AMEX card, you may be able to enter Delta Sky Club on some flights.
