American Express expands Airport Club access program to include US Airways lounges

American Express has expanded it’s Platinum Card® Airport Club Access benefit program to include access to 17 US Airways Clubs across 13 cities.

The most interesting part of this tie-up is that unlike the program’s existing arrangements with American Airline’s Admirals Club®, Continental Airline’s Presidents Club, Delta Sky ClubTM, which require card-holders to be flying that particular airline, cardholders can access US Airways Clubs regardless of the airline the card holder is flying.

The lounge access does require the card holder to present their American Express Platinum Card® along with a government issued identification.

The card-holder’s spouse and children or up to two travelling companions can also gain access to the airport lounges.

Full details are available from the American Express website.
