"Delta is proud to collaborate with two of the most renowned names in design Architectural Digest and designer Thom Filicia on our first outdoor Delta Sky Club spaces," said Tim Mapes, Delta's senior vice president - Marketing. "Sky Deck represents our continuing effort to offer Delta customers exclusive experiences and amenities they value. The new outdoor terraces will do just that provide distinctive spaces with unprecedented outdoor runway views at two of the most globally significant airports in the world."
"It is ideal when we can collaborate on a marketing program that taps into AD's design expertise and trusted relationship with readers, and Delta has done so in order to create truly unique customer experiences," said Giulio Capua, vice president and publisher of Architectural Digest. "Architectural Digest has unmatched access to the top design talent and experience with luxurious home furnishing brands, and we are thrilled to leverage both as part of this collaboration."
The new space in Atlanta will be adjacent to the Delta Sky Club in Concourse F and will open this summer. At JFK, the space will be a rooftop terrace at the club in the airline's new $1.2 billion expansion of Terminal 4, scheduled to open in May. In addition to a unique viewing opportunity, the clubs will offer the comfort, convenience and relaxation customers expect from the award-winning Delta Sky Club experience.
"Amid the hustle and bustle of the airport experience, we seek to create a refuge, which represents Delta's dedication to elevated design and pays homage to an elegant lifestyle of travel and the spirit of flight," said designer Thom Filicia.
Over the last 24 months, Delta has opened or renovated 13 clubs across the Delta system in cities including Atlanta, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, Philadelphia and Seattle.
The Sky Decks are the latest in the airline's more than $3 billion investment in enhanced global products, services and airport facilities. In addition to investments in Delta Sky Clubs, Delta operates the largest Wi-Fi-enabled fleet in the world, is adding recharging stations at more airports, has added more First Class seats and in-flight entertainment to its domestic product; offers Economy Comfort on all two-class aircraft; is adding personal, in-seat entertainment for both BusinessElite and Economy class customers on all long-haul international flights; and is overhauling its terminal facility for international customers at its two largest global gateways the new international terminal in Atlanta now open and the expanded international terminal opening in May at New York-JFK.
