A new taste of British Airways luxury at New York's JFK


The UK's leading carrier, British Airways has opened the 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 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.

This is one of British Airways' most used lounges, after London Heathrow and plays host to hundreds of business and leisure customers that travel between New York and London on the carriers most lucrative route.  

The lounge is spread across 22,000 square feet and is 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.

There will be a granite-topped Quaich Bar, created in partnership with the Quaich Bar at the Craigellachie Hotel in Speyside, Scotland.  An experienced bartender will be on-hand at peak times to serve a full range of fine wines and cocktails such as the Broadway Copper Cup made with Copper Dog whisky, orange bitters and berries.  An innovative new addition to the lounge is a BrewDog craft beer room, in partnership with the brand, a beer has been designed specifically for British Airways, named after its flight call sign – Speedbird 100. The beer is available on flights from May 1.

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.”
The lounge has a delicate touch, verging on the minimalist with a range of seating options and areas that have a different feel, with some comfy sofas and easy armchairs. The self-serve bars are well stocked with premium brands and a good array of food at available at various spots.
