American Express announced the opening of a new Centurion Lounge at San Francisco International Airport.  Located in the airport’s Terminal 3, the lounge is the first Centurion lounge to open on the West Coast.

Centurion and Platinum Card members, as well as their immediate family or up to two travel companions, are offered complimentary access, while other American Express cardholders can purchase a one-day pass for $50.

The 8,200-square-foot (761-square-meter) lounge offers cuisine inspired by Napa Valley, as well as cocktails and a wine tasting area.  The lounge also features relaxation areas and shower suites.

Workspaces with Wi-Fi and power outlets are also located within the lounge, as well as a soundproof family room for travelers with children.

In celebration of the new lounge, American Express has partnered with Uber, an on-demand car service that uses an app to summon a vehicle, to provide cardholders with complimentary rides to San Francisco International all day on Thursday, November 6.  Card members with an American Express card as their preferred method of payment on the Uber app can enter the code CENTURIONSFO, and will receive a free Black Car ride from San Francisco to the airport.

The new Centurion Lounge at San Francisco is the fourth in the United States, after locations at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and New York’s LaGuardia.  In addition, American Express plans to open a new Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport next year.
