Travelers flying through Miami International Airport (MIA) now have even more reason to celebrate. Delta Air Lines recently unveiled a stunning expansion of its Sky Club at the airport.

The newly renovated space boasts nearly 4,000 square feet of additional floor area. It will accommodate over 100 more guests, bringing the total capacity to a comfortable 300.

This translates to a capacity increase of more than 50%, ensuring a more relaxed and enjoyable pre-flight experience for Delta passengers.

“Miami is a vital global transportation hub,” explains Claude Roussel, Delta’s Vice President of Sky Clubs and Lounge Experience.

“Its prominence within the Delta network continues to grow. This expansion and renovation project at the MIA Club directly addresses this market growth, elevating the lounge experience to perfectly match the vibrant character of this city.”

Miami Inspiration Takes Center Stage

The design of the expanded space draws inspiration from Miami’s renowned energy. A vibrant mosaic pays homage to the city’s iconic Art Deco architecture.

The overall color palette chosen reflects the turquoise waters, clear blue skies, and the white and gold accents that are synonymous with South Florida design.

To cater to the increased guest volume, the expansion features a new service buffet and additional beverage stations.

Recognizing the needs of business travelers, the expanded seating area offers a variety of options, including single-seat dining tables, a communal table with a central charging station, and conveniently placed power outlets at nearly every seat.

Existing seating throughout the Club has also been refurbished to seamlessly blend with the elevated aesthetic of the new space. Guests can further enjoy panoramic views of the H Concourse below from the newly expanded area.

Expansion Marks Year of Growth for Delta Lounges

The Miami expansion signifies the beginning of an exciting year for Delta lounges. Two brand new Delta Sky Clubs are slated to open in Charlotte and Seattle.

These will sit alongside three highly anticipated Delta One Lounges planned for JFK, LAX, and BOS airports.

Connecting Miami to the World

This summer, Delta will offer an impressive 34 peak-day flights from Miami to 12 destinations, including international service to Havana, Cuba.

All flights will be operated on Delta mainline aircraft, featuring premium cabin options for an enhanced travel experience.

With the addition of daily service to SEA starting in December, Delta’s domestic network from Miami will encompass all nine of its domestic U.S. hubs (ATL, BOS, LGA, JFK, MSP, DTW, LAX, SLC, and SEA), along with connections to Raleigh, Orlando, and Washington D.C.

Community Involvement

Delta is deeply committed to the Miami and South Florida community. The airline serves as a corporate sponsor for various youth organizations like the YMCA of South Florida, KIPP Miami, Junior

Achievement chapters across Greater Miami and South Florida, and Covenant House Florida.

Additional partnerships with Clean Miami Beach, Miami Beach Pride, and Feeding South Florida demonstrate Delta’s regional dedication. It encompasses environmental initiatives, cultural arts/LGBTQ+ rights, and overall well-being within the region.

The airline also holds the distinction of being the Official Airline of the Miami Marlins baseball team.

Last year, Delta made a noteworthy debut at Miami Art Week, showcasing the works of six local artists through captivating art projections on a chartered flight to the event.

Additionally, Delta commissioned pieces from these artists for a Delta-sponsored open-air gallery.

Earlier this year, Delta partnered with joint venture partner LATAM Airlines Group and Junior Achievement to offer 25 students from the New World School of the Arts a unique opportunity to gain real-world exposure to the aviation industry.

Delta and LATAM volunteers provided students with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the workings and operations of Miami International Airport, potentially sparking a passion for future careers in aviation.

With a significant workforce of over 7,500 Delta employees based in Florida, the airline further strengthens its connection to the state through profit-sharing payouts totaling $31.5 million for state-based employees this year.
