Two New Escape Lounges Open at Sacramento International Airport!

Two New Escape Lounges by American Express Now Open at Sacramento International Airport!

Arrived a little early for your flight or your flight is delayed?  At Sacramento international Airport that meant hanging out in the terminal (the newer Terminal B is pretty nice already!), but now you have another great option at SMF!  Two new lounges, the Escape Lounge, an American Express Centurion Studio Partner, have opened at Sacramento International Airport, one in each of the airport’s two terminals, Terminal A and Terminal B.

The new Escape Lounges (American Express Centurion Studio Partner) at the Sacramento International Airport are not a part of the popular Priority Pass Lounge network, so to get in you'll either need to pay up or if you have an American Express Platinum card you get complimentary access for yourself and two guests!

The new Escape lounges, one at each terminal at SMF, are part of an effort by airport officials to make the flying experience – at least the airport part of it – more fun and a bit more upscale.  Food items here include a menu from the chef at Hawks Provisions + Public House.

The Escape Lounge offers high-quality food and refreshments, wifi and other business services - all in a relaxed, contemporary environment, allowing guests to separate themselves from the noise and crowds of the public terminal.

Walk-up admission to the Escape lounge will cost $45, but if you book ahead online you can save $5 for booking in advance online.  And as part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection, your admission is free with the American Express Platinum Card for yourself and two guests.

And in case you're wondering, the following airports also have Escape Lounges:

  • Bradley International Airport
  • Minneapolis Saint-Paul International Airport
  • Oakland International Airport
  • Reno-Tahoe International Airport
  • Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport
  • Ontario T2 International Airport
  • Ontario T4 International Airport
  • Providence International Airport

For airports without a Priority Pass Lounge, Amex Centurion Lounge or similar lounge, having access to an Escape lounge is a great alternative for travelers!!
