Following the temporary closure at DFW, now the American Express Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport will be closing for at least two weeks in January 2019.
The exact date hasn’t been published on the Amex website yet but apparently the reason for the closure is once again quoted as “upgrading and expansion”.
You can access the reference page for American Express Centurion Lounge in Miami here.
The notice on the Amex website reads:
The Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport will be temporarily closed for a short period in January as we work to upgrade and expand the space. Please visit one of our partner lounges including Delta Sky Club® when flying Delta, or a Priority Pass™ Select lounge once enrolled.
In Miami the Centurion Lounge is located in Concourse D, near Gate D12. It is accessible via the SkyTrain within the D Concourse. If you are coming from another terminal, you must re-enter through security with either a connecting or onward boarding pass.
Alternatively there is a Priority Pass restaurant available at the D gates, the Corona Beach House which offers a US$30 F&B credit per person. This might be a decent option if you frequent that particular gate area.
I have previously written about the extremely crowded Centurion lounges and what Amex should about that so I can’t knock them for at least trying to expand the space but I certainly hope the closure will be quick and efficient because Miami is terrible if you don’t have the lounge access there.
Delta fliers can at least avail themselves to the SkyClub but other than that… Priority Pass isn’t much to write home about even though the $30 credit are night and certainly enough for a quick snack and drink.
