Back in 2017, American Express began offering select cardmembers access to Lufthansa airport lounges within Germany — the benefit has been extended several times, and, now, Amex is adding another few months of access.

Through July 31, 2020, select cardmembers can access the Lufthansa lounges below. Note, however, that locations may be closed during certain periods, as the carrier deals with coronavirus-related service reductions.

The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express

  • Lufthansa Business Lounge at Munich Airport (MUC - T2 Satellite)
  • Lufthansa Business Lounge at Frankfurt Airport (FRA - T1 Concourse B)

Additionally, when traveling in business class, cardmembers will have access to Lufthansa's slightly superior Senator Lounges at the same locations.

The American Express Centurion Card

In addition to the two business and Senator lounges above, Centurion cardmembers can access the following:

In all cases, customers must present their eligible credit card, a government-issued ID and a same-day confirmed boarding pass for a flight operated by Lufthansa, Swiss or Austrian. Guests are not included, but certain locations may offer entry for a fee.

While the current iteration of this program does have a deadline — entry is only guaranteed through July 31, 2020 — hopefully Amex will expand this partnership with Lufthansa yet again once the current promo runs its course. Additionally, we may see new partnerships launch over the months and years to come, now that the LoungeBuddy team has joined forces with American Express.

In addition to Lufthansa lounges, customers with the Centurion Card, the Platinum Card® from American Express and the Business Platinum Card® from American Express can access Amex’s own Centurion Lounges around the world, in addition to 1,200+ Priority Pass lounges and restaurants, and Delta Sky Club locations (with a same-day Delta ticket). Enrollment required for select benefits.
