Sydney Airport's American Express lounge is on the move, with the boutique space relocating to the other end of the T1 international terminal in mid-October
Currently nestled across from Gate 24, the invitation-only lounge will shift to spacious new digs near Gate 50, across from The House lounge in the terminal's Pier C.
The American Express lounge is generally well regarded by travellers for its contemporary decor, tasty spread of food and barista-pulled coffee.
However, since first opening in December 2014 the lounge's increasing popularity has seen it become over-crowded, especially in the mornings.
American Express says the new location will be "more than triple the size of the current lounge," adding that it will offer "a refreshing expansive space for its eligible Card Members to retreat."
The Sydney AMEX lounge was the first lounge at Sydney Airport not to be affiliated with an airline or alliance, although unlike The House there's no pay-in access, nor is the Priority Pass card accepted – the American Express lounge is exclusively for eligible American Express card-holders and their guests.
The next few months will also see the opening of a long-awaited American Express Centurion Lounge at LAX's Tom Bradley International Terminal, with a massive 1,300m² footprint boasting a day spa alongside a cocktail bar, showers and "private noise-buffering work stations."
