(NEW YORK) -- Delta Air Lines has partnered with Architectural Digest to develop the airline’s first-ever outdoor airport terraces.
Called The Sky Deck at Delta Sky Club in Concourse F of Atlanta’s new international terminal and in New York’s redeveloped Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, the terraces were designed by Thom Filicia, who was selected by Architectural Digest for the project.
“Amid the hustle and bustle of the airport experience, we seek to create a refuge, which represents Delta’s dedication to elevated design and pays homage to an elegant lifestyle of travel and the spirit of flight,” Filicia said.
The terraces, Delta said, will offer “distinctive spaces with unprecedented outdoor runway views at two of the most globally significant airports in the world.”
But getting access to those terraces might be harder than you think. Delta recently announced it would change its frequent-flier program, SkyMiles, to require minimum money spent as well as miles flown.
The new space in Atlanta will be adjacent to the Delta Sky Club in Concourse F and will open this summer. At JFK, the space will be a rooftop terrace at the club in the airline’s new $1.2 billion expansion of Terminal 4, scheduled to open in May.
