United Airlines just debuted a new United Club lounge at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Monday. The 5,000 square foot lounge is conveniently located close to Gate C1. While United doesn't have a hub at Fort Lauderdale, it offers flights to plenty of destinations in the United States.
The new lounge is the first of four new United Club locations that will open in 2019. United will offer new United Club network locations at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, New York's LaGuardia Airport as well as Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
The United Club in New Orleans will open in conjunction with the opening of the brand new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The new terminal is scheduled to open May 15. United is also moving it's operations to LaGuardia's Terminal B and will open its brand new club at New York's LaGuardia Airport. The airline will move to Terminal B and will aim to open the lounge in June of this year. United has not yet announced the opening day for its Raleigh-Durham International Airport lounge.
United Club lounges are designed with today's travelers in mind and are there to serve the unique needs of flyers. While lounge locations feature the standard offerings such as free Wi-Fi, places to work and plenty of food and beverages, they offer much more. Travelers can take advantage of personalized travel assistance, wellness rooms and private phone booths with speakerphones.
The United Club lounge network boasts over 50 clubs around the world. Annual membership fees start at $550 or 70,000 miles. In addition, the airline charges a $50, or 7,000 mile, initiation fee. One-time passes cost $59.
