Movers and shakers of Washington rejoice. The newly renovated Delta Sky Club at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) is officially open for business (or leisure) – now with an additional 1,800 square feet of space for guests to enjoy – and featuring fresh fare from chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley.
"We are looking forward to sharing the stunning Delta Sky Club at DCA with Washingtonians. From the cherry-blossom inspired chandelier to the sophisticated finishes, we've thoughtfully designed every detail of this Club for our guests," said Claude Roussel – Managing Director of Delta Sky Club. "The investments Delta is making in Delta Sky Clubs reflect our commitment to take the guest experience to the next level."
The 9,000 square feet space includes features for which Delta Sky Club is known, along with special touches inspired by Washington, D.C.
Some highlights include:
- Striking lighting features, modern finishes and leather furnishings
- Open seating plan to maximize views of the runway and the Potomac River
- Menu crafted by local chef and former Top Chef finalist Marjorie Meek-Bradley, which will be rotated seasonally
- A full-service bar, now with additional seating, that features seasonal cocktails, an exclusive all-American whiskey menu with 15 choices and wine selected by Delta's Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson
- Beltway-themed artwork from up-and-coming artists from across the country, as a part of THE GALLERY program
- Comfortable seating, Wi-Fi and easily accessible power outlets at nearly every seat
"In addition to the new elements of the redesigned Club, we're partnering with chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley, who has extensive experience at some of the leading restaurants in D.C. She's bringing her expertise, flare and creative style to the Club menu," continued Roussel.
"I am very excited to partner with Delta at the Delta Sky Club at DCA. I look forward to bringing my passion for local, seasonal ingredients to travelers, whether they are heading out of town or just passing through our awesome city," said Marjorie Meek-Bradley, chef and partner at Smoked and Stacked, and executive chef at St. Anselm.
Over the past two years Delta has focused on enhancing the customer experience at Delta Sky Clubs across the network — Delta announced a new Delta Sky Club coming to Austin- Bergstrom International Airport in 2019 and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in late 2018, debuted renovated Delta Sky Clubs at Newark Liberty International Airport and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, expanded the Delta Sky Club at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and opened new flagship Delta Sky Clubs at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which features local fare from renowned chef Ethan Stowell. In the past year, Delta Sky Club at SEA took home three industry awards, including the coveted International Yacht and Aviation Award in the Airport Lounge category for excellence in design.
The renovated Delta Sky Club is Delta's most recent investment for Washingtonians. Delta offers 56 peak-day flights to 12 destinations from DCA, including nonstop service to LAX, where it's the only airline to feature flat-bed seats alongside a range of other amenities in its premium Delta One cabin. Delta also offers convenient shuttle service to New York, where customers enjoy check-in as close as 15 minutes prior to departure and enjoy complimentary beer, wine and snacks once on board. In addition to being the official airline of the Washington Nationals and Kennedy Center Honors, Delta is also a lead sponsor in the transformation of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum "America by Air" gallery. Delta is committed to being a strong partner in the community, contributing one percent of its net income to charitable organizations each year — many of which are in the Washington, D.C., area, including Delta's longest-standing nonprofit partner, the American Red Cross.
