Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the proud home of Delta Airlines, one of the major airlines in the United States. Since 1998, this airport has been the world’s busiest airport for passenger traffic. At any given time, you can find thousands of passengers waiting at around 200 gates in all seven terminals.
Delta is the major presence in the Atlanta International Airport, and you can find Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta in every concourse.
Atlanta Airport has several other lounge options if you are not qualified to access Delta Sky Club. The Club at ATL, for example, is in the International Terminal and you can access it if you have a Priority Pass. Once you pass through security in the Domestic terminal, you can take the plane train to Terminal F.
How to Get To Delta Sky Club Atlanta Lounges
There are seven main concourses at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, serving both domestic and international flights. There are nine Delta Sky Clubs at the airport:
- Concourse T: The Delta Airport Lounge is located next to Gate T6.
- Concourse A: There are two Delta Sky Clubs in Concourse A. The main one is located on the mezzanine level as soon as you get to the main level from the train. The other one, which is considerably smaller than the main Concourse A Delta Sky Club, is located across from Gate A17, next to P.F. Chang’s.
- Concourse B: When the newly renovated Concourse B Delta Sky Club opened in September 2016, it created a major buzz for airport lounge enthusiasts. It holds the title of second largest Delta Sky Club in the world, with the largest still in New York JFK’s Terminal 4. This lounge puts the “Sky” in Sky Club – the floor to ceiling windows open to a panoramic skyline view of Downtown Atlanta in the distance. It is located near Gate B18.
- Concourse C: You can find a Delta Sky Club near Gate C37
- Concourse D: Just like Concourse A, there are two Delta Sky Clubs in this concourse. They are located near Gate D12 and Gate D27.
- Concourse E: Across from Gate E15. Delta also has a Military Lounge in Concourse E near the same area.
- Concourse F: At the Mezzanine Level. It is the only one of the Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta Airport that has a Sky Deck.

How to Get Into the Delta Sky Club
As frequent flyers, we prefer to fly Delta Airlines and have frequent flyer status. We also use the American Express Delta Reserve card, which includes complimentary membership to all Delta Sky Club Lounges around the world. Several Amex cards, like the American Express Platinum, allow card holder to access the Delta Sky Club as well.
Check your Amex membership agreement and benefits to clarify.
Another approach is to get a Delta Sky Club membership. There are two options for the membership: Executive Membership and Individual Membership. Annual costs are $745 and $495 respectively. You can pay in full or in monthly installments of $65/$45 for the year. If you prefer to do so, you can use SkyMiles to pay the fee: 70,000/47,000 miles will do it.
You can find the exact rules to sign up at the official Delta Sky Club page here.
Certain Delta Elite Medallion members can receive a complimentary access to the lounge as a benefit. Anyone who flies Delta in a business class, either departing internationally or making a connection through Atlanta Airport may access the Delta Lounge.n
In addition, if you are Gold, Platinum, or Diamond Medallion, and are flying internationally (Caribbean not included), you can access Delta Sky Clubs for free and bring one guest with you
If you own the American Express Platinum card, you are also welcome to use this lounge as long as you have a same-day Delta boarding pass.
Food and Drink at Delta Sky Club
Meals change throughout the day. Typically, all Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta offer the same type of food throughout the Airport. Delta Sky Club at Concourse B seems to offer slightly more than the rest.
For breakfast, you’ll find many options, like bagels, toasts, cereals, and hard-boiled eggs. There are options for small pastries and sweets as well.
Lunch may include some small sandwiches and vegetable trays. Limited amount of soup and meat are available. Mac & cheese seems to be popular lately and it is very good (and probably very bad!) Dinner typically includes some sort of pasta dish. Usually there are plenty of desserts, including cookies and small brownies.
Vegetarians can usually find plenty of options at Delta Sky Clubs. Hummus and fresh vegetables are usually available, and there is almost always a vegetarian soup or pasta dish in the Sky Club with fresh rolls.
The hot beverage bar offers freshly brewed Starbucks coffee. There is also a single-serve coffee machine for a cup of latte or cappuccino. Decaf coffee is also available, and there are plenty of tea options as well.
The regular bar – or “The Bar” – offers everything from bottled water, flavored water in big glass jugs, and complimentary alcoholic beverages, such as locally-brewed Sweetwater craft beer. You can get almost any alcoholic drink for free, but for top shelf drinks at Delta Sky Clubs, expect to pay.
Even though the majority of your drinks are free, don’t forget to tip your bartender!
Delta Military Lounge at ATL
Delta operates a Military lounge in Concourse as well. It’s open during the Holiday season. This lounge is specifically for service members and their families.
The Delta Military Lounge is staffed by Delta volunteers and snacks and drinks are offered similar to those you’ll find in other clubs.
Amenities at Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta
Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta offer other amenities as well:
This comes standard in any of the airport lounges we have visited. It is reliable and fast in all of the Delta Sky Club lounges. Ask for the day’s password as you check in at the front desk.
There are plenty of televisions inside Delta Sky Club lounges. Many are set to 24 hour cable news. Usually, the televisions behind the bar are set to sports channels. It’s a foregone conclusion that you’ll be able to watch the Atlanta Falcons or Braves game when they are playing!
Only two Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta offer showers – in Concourse E and F. If you’re lucky enough to visit one of them, you’ll get towels and boutique shampoos, conditioners, and body lotions provided. They are all Malin + Goetz brand. We love them!
You may also ask for toothbrushes, toothpaste, or even a shaving kit if you need one.

We have several memberships and airline status that allow us to access airport lounges all around the world.

Delta doesn’t accept Priority Pass
We love Delta Sky Clubs. But when we travel outside the US (or in airports where Delta is not a major presence in the US) we use our Priority Pass for airport lounge access.
Delta Sky Clubs don’t accept Priority Pass; however, we recommend getting one. Priority Pass is accepted in more than 1200 airport lounges around the world!
Whenever we’re at Atlanta Airport, you’ll almost certainly find us in one of the Sky Club lounges. Have you used the Delta Sky Clubs in Atlanta? What did you think?
