Delta Sky Club at DCA gets upgraded

The Delta Sky Club at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport now features a season menu crafted by local chef and former “Top Chef” finalist Marjorie Meek-Bradley.

The renovated Delta Sky Club at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) officially reopened today – now with an additional 1,800 sq. ft. of space and an overhauled food and beverage program for guests to enjoy.

“We are looking forward to sharing the stunning Delta Sky Club at DCA with Washingtonians. From the cherry-blossom inspired chandelier to the sophisticated finishes, we’ve thoughtfully designed every detail of this Club for our guests,” said Claude Roussel – managing director of Delta Sky Club. “The investments Delta is making in Delta Sky Clubs reflect our commitment to take the guest experience to the next level.”

The 9,000 sq. ft. space includes features for which Delta Sky Club is known, along with special touches inspired by Washington, D.C. Some highlights include:

  • Striking lighting features, modern finishes and leather furnishings
  • Open seating plan to maximize views of the runway and the Potomac River
  • Rotating seasonal menu crafted by local chef and former Top Chef finalist Marjorie Meek-Bradley
  •  Full-service bar, now with additional seating, that features seasonal cocktails, an exclusive all-American whiskey menu with 15 choices and wine selected by Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson
  • Beltway-themed artwork from up-and-coming artists from across the country, as a part of THE GALLERY program
  • Comfortable seating, Wi-Fi and easily accessible power outlets at nearly every seat

“I am very excited to partner with Delta at the Delta Sky Club at DCA. I look forward to bringing my passion for local, seasonal ingredients to travelers, whether they are heading out of town or just passing through our awesome city,” said Marjorie Meek-Bradley, chef and partner at Smoked and Stacked, and executive chef at St. Anselm.

Over the past two years Delta has focused on enhancing the customer experience at Delta Sky Clubs across the network – Delta announced a new Delta Sky Club coming to Austin- Bergstrom International Airport in 2019 and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in late 2018, debuted renovated Delta Sky Clubs at Newark Liberty International Airport and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, expanded the Delta Sky Club at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and opened new flagship Delta Sky Clubs at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which features local fare from renowned chef Ethan Stowell. So guests can rest and recharge during travel, Delta also unveiled Asanda Spa Lounges at ATL, SEA and JFK.

In the past year, Delta Sky Club at SEA took home three industry awards, including the coveted International Yacht and Aviation Award in the Airport Lounge category for excellence in design.

The renovated Delta Sky Club is Delta’s most recent investment in the national capital area. Delta offers 56 peak-day flights to 12 destinations from DCA, including nonstop service to LAX, where it’s the only airline to feature flat-bed seats alongside a range of other amenities in its premium Delta One cabin. Delta also offers convenient shuttle service to New York, where customers enjoy check-in as close as 15 minutes prior to departure and enjoy complimentary beer, wine and snacks once on board. In addition to being the official airline of the Washington Nationals and Kennedy Center Honors, Delta is also a lead sponsor in the transformation of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum “America by Air” gallery.

Access to the more than 50 Delta Sky Club lounges around the world is available by purchasing a single visit pass or an annual lounge membership, traveling in first or business class on select Delta or partner airlines and routes, as a benefit of various credit cards, or through Delta’s frequent flyer program. Complete rules are available on Delta’s website.
