A Haven on the Go: American Express Opens THE CENTURION® Studio in Seattle-Tacoma International AirportAccess to The Centurion Studio is an exclusive benefit for Platinum Card® and Centurion® Members
NEW YORK,  June 30, 2015 -- 

Today, American Express (NYSE:AXP) announced the opening of The Centurion Studio in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), an extension of The Centurion Lounge network in a smaller setting, and its first location in the Pacific-Northwest region. Located in Concourse B opposite from Gate B3, The Centurion Studio in SEA provides an oasis for Platinum Card and Centurion Members to relax and recharge. 

Access to The Centurion Studio is the latest feature in a suite of travel benefits for Platinum Card Members. The Centurion Studio brings all the comfort, design, quality and convenience of The Centurion Lounge to a smaller, more intimate space, featuring the most essential amenities Card Members want while traveling.  These include comfortable seating, charging stations, and free high-speed Wi-Fi. Card Members can also enjoy Seattle-inspired light bites, wine, beer and artisanal beverages*.

“Many of our Platinum Card Members travel and enjoy the Lounges so often that we wanted to bring this unique Lounge experience to more places, including airports with smaller available spaces,” said Lisa Durocher, Senior Vice President of Charge Cards and Benefits, American Express. “Just like The Centurion Lounge, The Centurion Studio offers great food and beverages in a comfortable setting to relax and recharge.”

The Centurion Studio features a curated collection of locally-inspired light bites and beverages from premium Seattle-based brands locals know and love:

  • Build a breakfast parfait with Anna’s honey, Ellenos Yogurt and Marge Granola.
  • Snack on Macrina Bakery artisan baked breads, Theo artisanal chocolate and Tim’s Cascade Chips, as well as seasonal fresh fruit and crisp crudités with hummus.
  • Enjoy handcrafted Jones Soda, savor an aromatic IPA from Georgetown Brewing Company or sip on award-winning wines from the Columbia Valley. Of course, The Centurion Studio in SEA would not be complete without fresh-roasted coffee, so locally-brewed Caffe Vita is served.

The Centurion Studio is open daily from 5a.m. – 10p.m. Due to the smaller setting of The Centurion Studio, access** is complimentary and limited to Platinum Card and Centurion Members, and their immediate family (spouse or domestic partner and children under 18 years of age) or one travel companion. The Centurion Studio does not sell one-day passes. One-day passes purchased at The Centurion Lounge locations are not valid at The Centurion Studio.

The Centurion Studio in SEA is an extension of The Centurion  network, uniquely designed airport lounges aimed to enhance the travel journey for American Express Card Members. The Centurion Lounge locations include Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS), Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA), San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Miami International Airport (MIA).
