On May 21, Delta's latest Sky Club lounge at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the first for the airport, opened for business. The new 9,000-square-foot lounge is located on the mezzanine level of the Barbara Jordan Terminal near the Delta gates.

Features of the Sky Club include a covered Sky Deck patio open year-round, seating areas, high-speed Wi-Fi and ample power outlets. The space is decorated in an "eclectic" style inspired by Austin, according to a release from Delta, with details such as walnut surfaces, metal finishes and plush fabrics, plus select work from local artists.

A full-service bar is also on-site, with wines curated by Delta's Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson, plus seasonal cocktails, an extensive collection of tequila and mezcal, and Texas-based brews such as Thirsty Planet's Thirsty Goat, Hi Sign Violet the Blueberry Blonde and Saint Arnold Fancy Lawnmower. Seasonal food offerings will also be rotated, with a focus on meals and ingredients inspired by the region.

Erik Snell, Delta's Senior Vice President — Operations & Customer Center, said in a statement from the airline: "Building on our unmatched operational excellence, award-winning customer service and the ability to easily connect to cities around the globe, the first Delta Sky Club at Austin will give business and leisure travelers yet another best-in-class offering to enjoy."

"We've put care into every detail — from the curated, local artwork to the Club design to the seasonal food and beverage offerings," Claude Roussel, Managing Director — Delta Sky Club, commented. "We look forward to welcoming guests traveling through Austin — they will be wowed by the experience and incredible service."
