American Express Centurion Lounge opens at London Heathrow Airport

American Express has opened a new Centurion Lounge at London Heathrow Airport in Terminal 3, the first of its kind in Europe. "We are thrilled to introduce the Centurion Lounge experience to our Card Members travelling through London’s Heathrow Airport and make their return to travel even more special,” said Pablo Rivero, Vice President & General Manager, Global Lounge Experiences. 

This new lounge takes up around 650 square metres and has been designed to embody London’s vibrancy and charm as well as hosting all the usual features of a first-class lounge. It is interesting to note that of all the Amex Centurion Lounges around the world,  this is the first to partially utilize renewable energy through newly installed solar panels, to partly go towards the firm's commitment to be net-zero emissions globally by 2035.
