American Express announced plans this week to open its 12th Centurion Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in 2019.

While details are limited about the opening of the upscale airport lounge, American Express said that it will be located after security in the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX and can be accessed through Terminals Four, Five, Six, Seven, and Eight.

In addition to amenities like high-speed Wi-Fi and complimentary food, wine, and cocktails that are available at other Centurion Lounges, the 13,900-square-foot lounge at LAX will also feature a spa, family room, “custom, visual wall installations,” and a tranquility area that will offer both brightly lit and dimly lit quiet areas to help travelers adjust to new time zones between flights.

As with other American Express Centurion Lounges, access will be complimentary for Platinum Card Members and Centurion Members. While Platinum Card Members can bring up to two companions into the lounge for free, Centurion Members can bring their immediate family or up to two guests into the lounge with them. Additional guests can join both Platinum Card and Centurion Members for an extra $50 each.

Travelers have sung the praises of other Centurion Lounge locations, which are not associated with any specific airline.

The LAX lounge is the third Centurion Lounge slated to open in 2019, after American Express announced plans earlier this year to open locations at both New York’s JFK and Denver International Airport.

The three new lounges will join an expanding network that already operate out of New York’s LaGuardia Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Miami International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Las Vegas’s McCarran Airport, Hong Kong International Airport, Philadelphia International Airport, Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
