From yoga at Burlington Airport in Vermont to Delta’s upcoming Sky Decks in Atlanta and JFK, airports are becoming destinations in their own right. But we’ve said that already.

Delta is developing outdoor terraces at its Sky Clubs in Atlanta (rendering above) and at JFK.


The next time you fly Delta at JFK or Atlanta, how about catching some rays and a drink al fresco while you are killing time and waiting for your next flight?

That should be possible in a few months as Delta is opening its first outdoor airport terraces at the Delta Sky Clubs in Concourse F of Atlanta Hartsfield’s new international terminal, and at Terminal 4 at JFK.

Delta is developing the new Sky Decks in partnership with Architectural Digest and designer Filicia, as the airline continues its media-happy partnership trend.

Earlier this month Delta announced a media partnership with AD owner Conde Nast, which will sell advertising on Delta websites and other properties.

The Sky Decks are geared to emphasize relaxation, elegance, and a chance to be outdoors in vacation mode with a chance to take advantage of the views.

The Sky Deck at JFK is slated to be the first to open in May.
