Admirals Club 70th Birthday

American Airlines Admirals Club Celebrates 70 Years of Service

Happy 70th Birthday Admirals Club
American Airlines is celebrating the 70th birthday of its Admirals Club lounges with 70 days of prizes and promotions, August 10 through October 19. 

In 1939, American Airlines opened the industry’s first VIP lounge at LaGuardia Airport in New York, forever changing travel at airports.  During the past 70 years, the Admirals Club has become synonymous with productivity, comfort and convenience at major airports through the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Today, American Airlines has more than 40 Admirals Club locations worldwide.  Membership provides the key to private surroundings where members can relax or work before, after or between flights, and enjoy personalized, professional service from club staff.   

We invite you to join us in celebrating 70 years of Admirals Club service by taking part in our 70-day birthday celebration.  Register to win one of seven amazing prizes, including a Lifetime Admirals Club Membership; a one-year Admirals Club membership and AAdvantage miles; a weeklong luxury vacation in Maui; a weekend getaway in historic Napa Valley; a three-day ski vacation in Vail, Colorado; one night at a Hollywood movie premiere; and one moment of magic for you and your family in Orlando, FL.

Reinvesting in Our Facilities

Admirals Club lounges are located at 38 airports worldwide (23 domestic; 15 international).  In an effort to enhance the travel experience for its customers, American continues to reinvest in its Admirals Club facilities. 

Since 2008, two, new Admirals Club facilities opened – one in Raleigh/Durham (opened October 2008); one in Washington Dulles (opened January 2009). 

This year American announced the completion of extensive renovations to its Chicago O’Hare H/K Admirals Club lounge (February 2009) and its Sao Paulo Admirals Club lounge (June 2009).  Also this year, American began extensive renovations to its Boston Admirals Club lounge and to its London Heathrow Admirals Club and Flagship Lounge, all scheduled for completion in 2010.
