Plaza Premium Lounge, the world’s first common-use airport lounge concept, made its debut at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport on Sept. 1. This marked the 18th location in the Americas in the group’s lounge portfolio, but first in the United States. Other locations can be found in Edmonton, Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Rio de Janeiro.
Located near Gate E31, it is the only common-use lounge in Terminal E and a two-minute walk from DFW’s Skylink. The newly opened Plaza Premium Lounge implements heightened hygienic methods, and offers more than 1,400 square feet, WiFi, charging pods, an AeroBar and pre-portioned and pre-packaged food items.
Open 6 a.m.–1 p.m. daily in September, Plaza Premium Lounge DFW can be accessed with eligible American Express cards and select travel passes. Travelers can also book in advance or walk in for a three-hour use offer at $45. Through Nov. 30, all walk-ins and online reservations will receive a 30 percent discount.
“At DFW Airport, our focus on the customer continues to drive our business strategies, programmes, enhancements and partnerships,” said Ken Buchanan, executive vice president of customer experience and revenue management, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. “We welcome partnering with Plaza Premium Group because their hospitality services are highly respected. We are confident the Plaza Premium Lounge will be a popular destination in Terminal E.”

I had last stayed at the Halekulani years earlier, and I have a lot of fond memories. Halekulani is a mainstay on the edge of Waikiki, and I have always considered it a haven from all the bustle. You can walk almost anywhere and return for the serenity here.
