RALEIGH - Delta has officially unveiled its latest Club renovation at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). The enhanced facilities have nearly doubled the seating capacity and added more accessible power charging stations and a new food and beverage area.
For more than two years, the airline has been actively reinventing, renovating and revitalizing the Delta Sky Club experience, making it another reason to choose Delta. RDU’s Club represents the latest in the airline’s premium customer experience and features local touches designed to provide a meaningful, inviting environment for members and guests — from modern décor and spacious seating to locally inspired food and premium drink offerings at THE BAR.
“We are constantly striving to go above and beyond for our guests, and this time, we’re showcasing the best of what the Tarheel State has to offer,” said Claude Roussel, Managing Director — Delta Sky Clubs. “This reopening marks the continuation of Delta’s investments to improve the overall travel experience, giving our guests another reason to fly Delta.”
