Chase’s Sapphire Lounge at Boston Logan International Airport is now open. The doors to the first domestic airport lounge bearing the Chase Sapphire branding opened on Tuesday, May 16, follows on the successful launch of the Hong Kong International Airport late last year.
Chase Launches First US Lounge
The first Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club in the United States has finally opened. The Sapphire Lounge by The Club in Boston highlights the history and identity of Boston while providing the exceptional service that makes the Chase Sapphire brand so iconic.
The Chase lounges are similar to other airport lounges on your global travels. This means weary flyers can expect the following when they check-in:
|Chase Sapphire Lounge Amenities|
|Locally curated menus and art||Spaces for relaxing and working||Fresh and seasonal dining options||Signature cocktails, local beer, and a curated wine list|
|Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi||An in-lounge digital experience for food and beverage orders, as well as access to media and entertainment||Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free menu options and complimentary refreshments (soft drinks and alcoholic drinks)||Admission via a quick, contactless scan|
About Chase’s Boston Lounge
The 11,640 square foot lounge, located in the Terminal B to C Connector, between gates B40 and B39, provides distinct areas for recharging, including two wellness rooms that feature anti-gravity massage chairs and guided meditations from Master Well-Being Educator & Healer Devi Brown, a private nursing suite, two dual-head shower rooms, and all-gender restrooms stocked with Apotheke products.
Featuring a locally inspired dining experience that includes menu items from acclaimed Boston chef Douglass Williams (of Boston’s MIDA and APIZZA), a signature taproom offering local craft beer and coffee from Beverly, Massachusetts Atomic Coffee Roasters, at the Sapphire Lounge travelers are encouraged to refuel before takeoff while enjoying spaces designed to highlight and celebrate Boston culture.
The beautifully designed space, which offers direct views of the Boston Logan airfield and the iconic Boston Harbor, is accented by artwork, including work from Boston-based artist Silvia López Chavez and hand-selected pieces from the JPMorgan Chase & Co. private art collection, including work from emerging artists like Cig Harvey, Pelle Cass, Gohar Dashti and Daniel Gordon.
“Elevated Airport Lounges”
The Sapphire Lounges aims to provide an airport experience akin to the famed Centurion Louges operated by American Express. And it is this commitment to excellence that will ensure eligible travelers get the most out of their brief stay.
“Chase Sapphire is leading the charge when it comes to creating one-of-a-kind opportunities for its travelers, and our new lounge in Boston paves the way for Sapphire’s benefits to enhance our cardmembers’ airport experience,” said Dana Pouwels, Managing Director, Sapphire Lounge General Manager and Head of Chase Sapphire Partnerships. “Sapphire Reserve cardmembers are travelers by nature, so we’re upgrading their travel journey with elevated airport lounges that unlock new dining, wellness, and cultural experiences.”
“Our Sapphire Lounges are part of our commitment to elevate the travel journey for Chase cardmembers,” added Allison Beer, CEO of Card Services and Connected Commerce at JPMorgan Chase & Co. “Our goal for Chase Travel is to mirror our investment in high-tech travel platforms with the high-touch experience that you see in our Sapphire lounges today.”
Future Sapphire Lounge Locations
Chase has plans to open nearly ten airport lounges across the world. The bank launched its first Sapphire Lounge last October in Hong Kong. But while the Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) locations are the first, many are opening very soon. Here are all the planned Chase Sapphire Lounge locations:
|Hong Kong International Airport (HKG)||Terminal 1||Open|
|Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)||Terminal B/C connector||Open|
|Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS)||Terminal 1||Coming soon|
|New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA)||Terminal B||Coming soon|
|Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)||Terminal D/E connector||Coming soon|
|Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)||Terminal 4 South||Coming soon|
|San Diego International Airport (SAN)||Terminal 2 West||Coming soon|
|Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)||Terminal A||Coming soon|
While the Boston-Logan Sapphire Lounge is the first in the country, it isn’t the only Chase airport amenity in the United States. Chase also operates a Chase Sapphire Terrace at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS). That location opened a few months ago and offers a combined indoor-outdoor space covering approximately 5,000 square feet, with 80% of that being an outdoor terrace.
Lounge Access Rules
Access to the Chase Sapphire Lounges is complimentary for eligible JP Morgan Chase customers. Chase Sapphire Reserve, J.P.
