Delta Air Lines opened a Sky Club last fall inside the new Terminal A at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Even though the lounge debuted about seven months ago, many of us are only now starting to travel again and haven’t had the opportunity to visit the club. So as far as we’re concerned, this club is new. 🙂
And Delta really did a bang-up job with the addition.
I recently visited the SLC Sky Club and am excited to share the experience with you!
Where is the Delta Sky Club in Salt Lake City?
The Delta Sky Club SLC is located in the far east end of Terminal A. The final gate before it is A25.
Simply follow the signs to find your way there.
You’re very close when you reach the new canyon-themed departure hall.
The lounge will be on your left — whether you’re coming from the gates or the security checkpoint.
Keep in mind that Delta no longer sells day passes to its Sky Clubs. But there are a number of ways to gain entrance — such as your status level combined with an international itinerary, Sky Club membership, certain American Express cards, or if you’re a Delta One passenger.
Inside the New Delta Sky Club SLC
A couple of Sky Club ambassadors will greet you at the ground floor entrance. Check-in is “contactless” and you’ll scan your boarding pass at one of several kiosks.
After you’re given the OK, head up the escalators.
And there you’ll find a very impressive Delta Sky Club.
One of the first things you’ll see is some artwork. There are numerous paintings, sculptures, and other pieces of art throughout the club.
To your left, you’ll see a banner outlining Delta Sky Clubs’ COVID-19 policies:
That’s adjacent to a library offering periodicals.
There are also service reps to help you with any itinerary, seating, or other trip changes you want to request.
Delta Sky Club SLC Seating
Delta offers plenty of seating options in the new club. Everything from lounge chairs, to cafe-style setups, to sofas, and much more.
And there’s a Sky Deck! (I’m giving that its own section.)
If all of this is too fancy for you, don’t worry. The “standard” Sky Club seats are still around.
This is going to majorly trigger some people. There is reserved seating for families.
I try to be considerate when making phone calls in public places — especially indoor areas with other people. I either go somewhere where others aren’t or talk very quietly.
Not everyone employs the same practice.
So Delta implanted these handy-dandy, private phone booths!
I hope someone rips off their business suit in one of these sometime — and emerges wearing a Superman or Superwoman costume.
The phone booths feature USB-A, USB-C, and electrical outlets. So feel free to have your phone, FaceTime, or Zoom call in here!
The long bars next to picture windows are generally my favorite places to work in Sky Clubs. You’ll find one at the end of this room.
I don’t recall seeing any USB ports. So if you want to sit here while charging your tablet and phone, bring something like a travel power strip with you.
I used my AUKEY Omnia 100W four-port charger (which I absolutely love; review coming soon) to recharge my iPhone and MacBook Pro. The device fit just fine.
Sky Deck Patio at Delta Sky Club SLC
The Delta Sky Club SLC features a large Sky Deck with some absolutely stunning views. (Trust me: they’re better in person.)
The patio has fans and heaters — so it should be useable throughout most of the year.
I sat on the deck twice: once during my arrival in the late afternoon and again at sunset before flying home.
I’d gladly trade in the walls and TV for some more views of the mountains.
Now that you’ve taken the tour, how about grabbing food and something to drink?
Food and Beverage at the Delta Sky Club SLC
Delta has two full, staffed bars in the SLC Sky Club. You can see their entire drink menu here. That’s quite an upgrade from the old setup: which pretty much amounted to a glorified service window.
Here’s one of the new bars:
(Heads up for my fellow imbibers: don’t expect generous pours.)
There are also separate drink stations offering coffee, water, and soda.
The lounge features plenty of buffet space. Unfortunately, there’s that whole COVID pandemic thing going on. So most items are packaged for “grab-and-go” style dining.
There were a few hot food options the day I visited.
One was from the portable “chef’s table” that featured chicken teriyaki and basmati rice.
Interesting combination, isn’t it? I love chicken teriyaki; I also love basmati rice. Together? It was fine. Nothing amazing. But fine.
There were also a roasted red pepper gouda bisque and a vegetable broth.
Other than that, everything else is packaged.
Some desserts (i.e. packaged cookies) were also available.
Another Sky Club Coming to SLC?
Heavy construction is still in progress at SLC.
One Delta rep said there may be another Sky Club (with a Sky Deck!) in the plans for Terminal B.
I really like the new Delta Sky Club at SLC. I look forward to visiting again when Delta’s really able to show off its food options a little more (similar to my experience at the LAX Centurion Lounge).
Delta really created a great spot. I’d love to hear your thoughts if you’ve visited the Sky Club at SLC!
