Miami’s much-improved Centurion Lounge is now open! Following a sizable 4,000-square-foot expansion, this latest refresh now offers a total of 12,300 square feet, making it one of the largest Amex lounges in the world.

By repurposing what was formally a section of the roof at Miami International Airport (MIA)’s Concourse D, Amex was able to keep its existing lounge location near gate D12. Following the refresh, guests will have access from 5am until 10pm each day, though agents may choose to extend the hours to accommodate flight delays.

MIA will be the first location to offer a dedicated cold buffet — in addition to the existing hot-item selection — with a mix of dishes created by Michelle Bernstein, a James Beard Award winner and local Miami chef. Options range from a Greek yogurt bar at breakfast to chilled soups, salads, sandwiches and more for lunch and dinner.

Travelers can access the lounge with two guests by flashing a valid Centurion CardThe Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express (enrollment required). As of March 22, 2019, Platinum cardmembers will only be able to enter the lounge with a boarding pass for a flight departing within three hours, though Centurion members will continue to have unrestricted access.
