Delta’s expansion in Seattle over the past few years has been huge – the airline has added a ton of new flights, both domestic and international. Delta currently utilises the A, B, and S gates at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, with the Delta Sky Club lounge being located in the South Satellite.
While Delta’s international flights out of Seattle depart mainly from the South Satellite (S Gates), some international flights also depart from the very end of Concourse A… which is quite a walk (and a train ride) from the S Gates, where the current Sky Club is located. The airline temporarily solved this issue by allowing premium passengers to access The Club at SEA in Concourse A (which was previously a Delta lounge).
Delta’s expansion in Seattle isn’t over and therefore the airline announced late last year a plan to build a new, massive Delta Sky Club, located between Concourse A and Concourse B, essentially right next to the new American Express Centurion Studio. At 21k square feet, the new Sky Club will feature gorgeous views of Mount Rainier, showers, power outlets near most seating areas, a spa, and many more amenities.
It has been almost a year since the announcement of the new Sky Club and per much speculation, Delta has confirmed the new Sky Club in Seattle will open this upcoming Friday, 21 October 2016.
@DominikZmuda Hi, the grand opening will be next Friday, October 21st. *YC

Complimentary access to the Delta Sky Club is granted through a variety of ways, one of them being with the American Express Platinum Card. For those passengers that do not have either a qualifying ticket or qualifying card, Delta does sell a single visit pass (though keep in mind they may be limited due to capacity restrictions).
I’m excited for the opening of the new Delta Sky Club as it will be an improvement over the current Sky Club, and a great addition to the current Seattle Airport Lounges. I’m starting to fly Delta a lot more (due to the best SkyMiles award – which a lot of flights out of Seattle are eligible for), so I can see myself using the new Delta lounge in the future.
I plan on attending the grand opening of the lounge this upcoming Friday so hopefully I will have a review up by the following day. Are you excited about the new Delta Sky Club in Seattle?
