Oases of wellness at the airport. The world's best airport lounges.

Before a long trip, relax with an ice-cold drink or take care of business: airport lounges offer the comfort needed. We reveal some of the best airport lounges around the world and what they offer.

Protection against sensory overload: Airport lounges

Who hasn’t experienced it? People rushing, loud phone calls, and bad internet reception. Waiting at an airport can be quite stressful. But not so in an airport lounge. They are oases of wellness away from the airport hustle and bustle and turn the time spent waiting into an exclusive experience. Without a first- or business-class flight, lounge access can cost a pretty penny. However, anyone with a credit card may well have the benefit of a free visit to a lounge. Allow us to present the airport lounges that you can visit free of charge with the American Express® Platinum Card and where you can enjoy special conveniences in a relaxed setting.
