British Airways has opened its doors to the new Club lounge at New York’s JFK airport.
It completes a £50 million investment, following the unveiling of a plush new space for first class customers in autumn last year.
Customers at JFK Terminal 7 have also seen changes to the public areas and gate spaces to make them more appealing, welcoming and comfortable.
As British Airways’ flagship US lounge, the carefully curated space will play host to the hundreds of business and leisure customers that travel between New York and London on up to twelve trans-Atlantic flights a day.
Spread across 22,000 sq. ft. (spanning over half acre), the lounge is carefully laid out to offer designated areas that are designed to meet different customer needs.
The new space includes elegant, relaxed seating areas as well as ample work stations with power outlets to maximise time in the office.
Other spots include an entertainment room with state-of-the-art entertainment and sound from Sony, and the reopened Elemis Spa offers a range of treatments to help travellers relax and recharge ahead of their journey.
Carolina Martinoli, British Airways director of brand and customer experience said: “JFK airport is like a second home to Heathrow so it’s great to mark the final step in our significant customer investment with the opening of our new Club and First lounges.
“Every detail has been carefully designed and we’ve created a space to meet our customers’ needs – whether they want to relax and have a meal or enjoy a craft beer and catch up on the world news.”
This is the third lounge to feature our contemporary and luxurious design, following the lounge openings in Rome, Italy and Aberdeen, Scotland last year.
It is part of the airline’s five-year £6.5 billion customer investment programme.
