Delta is planning a new lounge for Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) in 2020. In fact, construction has already started on the state-of-the-art space that will be welcoming guests by July of this year. The new Delta lounge will be located in what was the TIAT Lounge Annex. Travelers will soon be greeted by a Delta Sky Club spanning 9,000 square feet right next to Haneda's Delta gates.

While it will be a good five months before the new Delta lounge opens its doors, we do have some idea about what guests can expect. Delta is promising international and Japanese cuisine. The culinary highlight of the lounge will be a noodle bar. We also know that there will be a full-service bar that offers seasonal cocktails. Some of the lounge's practical features will include high-speed Wi-Fi, power outlets at every seat and shower suites. Delta is also designing comfortable seating that will be peppered throughout the lounge.

Delta currently operates flights to Tokyo from seven destinations within the United States. That means that travelers flying to Detroit, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Honolulu and Minneapolis–Saint Paul may be able to take advantage of the amenities and comforts offered by the new Delta Sky Club at Haneda in the near future.

While American and United both serve Haneda, Delta is the largest carrier in the United States to offer service to the Pacific hub. March of this year will bring Delta's full move from Narita International Airport (NRT) to its new home at Tokyo Haneda Airport.
