A highly anticipated luxury terminal for travelers taking commercial flights is scheduled to open on September 6th at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International. Operated by luxury company PS, the terminal will be the second one of its kind as given that a similar one opened at LAX in Los Angeles since 2017. According to CNN, the private, VIP terminal concept can be found internationally in places such as Dubai, Frankfurt and London’s Heathrow.
PS ATL is expected to provide customers with privacy, security and luxury. A private respite away from the bustle of the airport. The experience includes designed spaces to unwind, transportation to and from the aircraft door, private TSA and customs screening, state-of-the-art amenities, and an extensive menu of cocktails and chef-prepared meals available for both departures and arrivals.
“Opening our second PS location in America’s busiest airport will bring the countless travelers that fly to and through Atlanta the convenience and luxury that has become synonymous with the PS brand,” said Amina Porter, CEO of PS. “The Atlanta Department of Aviation played a pivotal role in bringing this vision to life and we hope other airports will follow suit.”

The Salon lounge and Private Suite are both equipped with all of the complimentary “often-forgotten amenities you can think of (but didn’t),” according to PS. At boarding time, members and guests will then be driven to their commercial flights at any of ATL’s gates to board the plane directly from the tarmac in a BMW sedan. For those arriving to ATL, the full experience is reversed, from tarmac pick-up through airport departure, as well as private customs clearance on international arrivals.
PS ATL will pair global sophistication with local culture, showcasing a range of regional partners that shine a light on some of Atlanta’s most notable and noteworthy brands and artisans. The elegant space features an extensive collection of artworks by black artists, and antique and vintage furniture pieces sourced from local collectors.
The Private Suites provide travelers with complete privacy in their own spacious accommodation, while The Salon offers a sophisticated social lounge perfect for solo travelers or small groups. Beyond the respite spaces, guests can enjoy an extensive menu of cocktails and chef-prepared meals, as well as spa and beauty offerings such as massages, manicure and barber services.
Annual memberships are optional and bring the cost of services down. Customers may also buy one-time packages without an annual membership. There are packages for either one-way or round-trip services. According to CNN, the lowest cost option is $1,095 (roughly 995 euros) for a one-time use of the Salon without membership. The all-access membership package for a year would cost $4,850 (roughly 4,400 euros).
PS recently announced locations coming to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), set to open in spring 2024, and Miami International Airport (MIA), scheduled for a 2025 opening.
