British Airways and American Airlines have announced plans of their shared terminal at JFK Airport’s Terminal 8, which will open to passengers in December.
The redevelopment and expansion of the terminal, which is now home to American Airlines, is expected to cost $400 million.
The plans were unveiled in 2019, and on 1st December 2022, the airlines will begin joint operations under one roof.
BA’s brand and customer experience director, Tom Stevens, said: “Our move to the redeveloped and expanded Terminal 8 will bring a range of benefits for our customers, including a better transfer experience, enabling them to travel to more than 30 destinations across the US, Caribbean, and Latin America with American Airlines.
“British Airways will remain in Terminal 7 until December 1, 2022, and we have continued to invest in the experience for our customers, including our check-in area, concessions and lounges.”
American’s chief customer officer, Alison Taylor, added: “American is eager to welcome British Airways to their 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 onward across our global networks.”
For top-tier travelers, there will be a co-branded premium check-in facility. Following security, three lounges will provide travelers with a pre-flight experience based on their cabin of travel and reward program status.
Around 1,000 people will be seated in the expanded premium lounges.
