Air France brings a touch of luxury to JFK with new lounge

Air France has unveiled its fully renovated lounge at Terminal 1 in New York’s JFK airport.

Exclusively reserved for customers travelling in La Première and Business, and Flying Blue Elite Plus members, the lounge features a host of services, offering even greater comfort before a passenger’s trip.

Frédéric Gagey, chairman, Air France, said: “On our legendary New York-Paris route, our passengers are already enjoying our latest long-haul cabin classes which are gradually equipping our Boeing 777 and our superjumbo the A380.

“Today’s inauguration of this beautiful new lounge completes our offer for our Premium customers and is part of our strategy to upgrade all our products and service, both on the ground and on board.”

The new lounge welcomes customers into a relaxing environment and features white and wooden decor with touches of red - the company’s signature colour.


The large mezzanine offers impressive views of the runways, and the curved architectural lines have been created by design and branding agency, Brandimage.

On arriving in the lounge, customers can receive all the information they need about their trip from Air France agents at the reception desk.

The lounge has two buffets serving hot and cold snacks, as well as a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, including champagne and French wines.

The range of dishes on offer vary depending on the time of day, with customers able to choose to dine before boarding.

At the heart of the lounge is a relaxation area with subdued lighting and comfortable seats.

The lounge also features a Clarins well-being area offering complimentary beauty treatments, together with access to shower stalls complete with Clarins products.

Guests can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi access and choose to work in the quiet area, or enjoy the wide selection of local and international media, available in French and English.

La Première customers receive a personalised welcome on their arrival at New York-JFK airport and are accompanied to the lounge, where a VIP area is exclusively reserved for them.

Located in the reserved area on the mezzanine, guests can enjoy signature dishes created by Joel Robuchon, served by a Maitre d’Hôtel. 

With 40 lounges throughout the world, Air France offers its customers access to lounges for fast and easy access through the airport.
