British Airways remains committed to offering passengers an exceptional, world-class transatlantic experience each time they fly between New York and London. The carrier has just announced that it will shift to a new location in Terminal 8 at New York's John F. Kennedy airport in the near future. It is investing in a new and improved terminal alongside American Airlines - its Atlantic joint-business partner - as part of a considerable reinvestment by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
British Airways will, however, remain in Terminal 7 until 2022 rolls around. The airline is working hard to improving the customer experience at New York's John F. Kennedy airport, especially since thousands of passengers fly between New York and London each week. With an investment amounting to approximately $65 million (£52 million), First and Club World customers can look forward to brand new lounges while all customers will enjoy an upgraded experience in the main areas of the Terminal 7 building.
What has been planned so far regarding Terminal 8? British Airways revealed more than $344 million (£250 million) will be pumped in to recreate and customize the terminal over the next four years.
The carrier promises passengers an exciting, pleasant experience in time to come once all is said and done. Besides enhanced state-of the-art baggage systems, upgraded concessions and premium check-in areas, travelers can keep their eyes peeled for new lounges, additional stands and more. For those who are thrilled by British Airways' latest announcement, more details regarding the new Terminal 8 redevelopment will be released in due course.
