AA Client Manager Alison Taylor commented:
“American is looking forward to welcoming British Airways to its new home at JFK. Their move to Terminal 8 further deepens our longstanding partnership and makes it easier than ever for customers traveling between New York and London or beyond on our global networks.
Tom Stevens, Director of Brand and Customer Experience at British Airways, added:
“New York holds a special place in our hearts as one of our most beloved and important destinations. Our move to the revamped and expanded Terminal 8 will bring a series of benefits to our customers, including an improved transfer experience, allowing them to travel to more than 30 destinations in the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America with American Airlines. .
Note that American’s Flagship First Check-in at JFK will close from February 1 for renovations and premium customers will be directed to temporary check-in counters located nearby. However, all lounges will remain open during the redevelopment project.
BA says that, in the meantime, it will “continue to deliver a world-class experience” at JFK’s Terminal 7.
British Airways and American Airlines are expected to offer up to 14 peak daily departures between JFK and London Heathrow Airport this summer.
