Your American Express Platinum card can unlock Lufthansa lounges
Packing an AMEX Platinum card in your wallert or purse? Now you can add these Lufthansa lounges to your access list.
One of the most valued frequent flyer perks of a top-tier credit card is lounge access – and the American Express Platinum card is already well ahead on that score, with its own network of Amex lounges plus access to Plaza Premium and Priority Pass lounges.
But there’s a lesser-known lounge partner in the mix, and that’s Lufthansa.
An American Express Platinum card provides access to selected Lufthansa lounges around the world.
That includes Lufthansa Business and Senator lounges in Germany, London Heathrow and New York JFK – although not all Lufthansa lounges are covered under the arrangement.
For example, Lufthansa’s Business lounges at Milan and Boston are part of the Amex access list, but not the Lufthansa lounge in Athens.
To make use of the AMEX Platinum lounge access perk, you’ll need to be flying on Lufthansa, Swiss or Austrian Airlines.
An economy ticket on those carriers gets you into the Lufthansa Business lounges when you also show your American Express Platinum card, while a business class ticket is your entree into the slightly upgraded Lufthansa Senator lounges.
Note that this applies only to Lufthansa lounges – not to the lounges of Austrian Airlines or Swiss, despite those being part of the Lufthansa Group.
And as flagged earlier, not all Lufthansa lounges make the cut: it varies from one airport to another, so consult the American Express Global Lounge Collection Programs & Partners website to check which lounge you can use at which airport.
But as you’d expect, Lufthansa lounges across Germany are all covered. This will include the two new Lufthansa Business and Lufthansa Senator lounges opening in March 2023 at Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
