Delta Air Lines today announced a partnership with internationally renowned designer Thom Filicia and Architectural Digest to develop outdoor Sky Decks at Sky Clubs at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, as well as New York’s JFK International Airport.
“Amid the hustle and bustle of the airport experience, we seek to create a refuge, which represents Delta’s dedication to elevated design and pays homage to an elegant lifestyle of travel and the spirit of flight,” Filicia explains. “It is ideal when we can collaborate on a marketing program that taps into AD’s design expertise and trusted relationship with readers, and Delta has done so in order to create truly unique customer experiences,” said Giulio Capua, vice president and publisher of Architectural Digest. “Architectural Digest has unmatched access to the top design talent and experience with luxurious home furnishing brands, and we are thrilled to leverage both as part of this collaboration.”
While details are still somewhat spotty, the Sky Deck renderings look pretty awesome. Just imagine yourself relaxing before a long-haul flight, cocktail in hand, and the invigorating smell of Jet-A wafting through the lounge’s open air. Plus d’avion, n’importe qui?
Delta is investing plenty of money into its new Terminal 4 at JFK, and Jaunted’s Cynthia Drescher was on hand to take a look around the new facilities. The new Delta Sky Deck will be welcome addition to the terminal’s shiny splendor, and will be arriving as soon as May at T4. For those folks in Atlanta, a summer opening is planned for ATL’s Sky Deck.
