It’s been about three years since we first heard about Delta Air Lines opening a new Sky Club in the far reaches of the “G” concourse at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The lounge was originally supposed to open in 2021. Then 2022. (I assume these were COVID-related delays.)
But we now have an official opening date!
A Delta spokesperson confirmed to us that the new Sky Club at MSP officially opens for business on Wednesday, April 19!
During a vist to MSP’s F/G Sky Club, I asked a Sky Club agent about the new lounge. Her eyes lit up as a big smile raised her face mask. “It’s going to be very nice,” she said.
We originally heard the new lounge would be 18,000 square feet.
That is incorrect.
The G Concourse Delta Sky Club will be 21,000 square feet! Delta notes that is “nearly twice the size of the current F/G Club.” (Thank goodness!)
There will be a year-round Sky Deck (I’m eager to see that!) and, from the sounds of it, an indoor/outdoor bar similar to the setup at the wonderful LAX T3 Sky Club.
I go through Minneapolis several times each year. My flights to/from Los Angeles (LAX) often depart from the high-G gates (G22, etc). I’m very excited this lounge is finally coming to fruition!

I think it’s 15K sq feet, not 18k 😉
The STrib article to which I linked said 18k. I guess we’ll find out within a couple of years. 🙂
Wow 2022 now!! Got to visit the New-Amex Centurion escape lounge yesterday in Providence,RI. It was opening day but it went well. There was table service only and the small bites were great. SO hopefully this is going to be everywhere that these re-newed lounges open…
I swear it was just the other day NWA had their Top Flight Club on the then Green concourse – at least it seems like just the other day…lol…The liquor I used to pour from those self-serve bottles prior to departure…for rides on those red tailed 727-51’s and 727-251’s and before the debacle with Republic, rides on the 757-251’s. Me and Free Flight Plan were best friends back then.
It bugs me that every time I drive by and see that skyway sign at LAX…why does DL insist on naming Terminal 2 and 3 the skyway?….The real/original Skyways are the ones connecting buildings within the downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul respectively.
The name picker of the LAX skyway must have been a former NWA’er who ended up at DL in ATL, and is homesick of their native Minnesota…probably doesn’t like peaches, peach pie, peach fizz or fuzz…lol They miss hot dish, ice fishing and the upcoming Great Minnesota Get-Together.
Long Live Dayton’s!…and Applebaum’s — oops family plug
