Qatar Airways has switched its operations at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport from Terminal 4 to Terminal 8.

Twice the size of the city's Yankee Stadium, the new terminal - which has 29 gates and 36 jet bridges - will offer the airline better amenities and services for departing, arriving and transit passengers.

The carrier has pledged a "refined check-in process", offering a spacious check-in area in row five of the main hall and enhanced baggage facilities. All its flights depart daily from Gate 16.

Alongside dozens of retail and food outlets spanning 53,000sq ft is a US Customs and Bordern Protection facility that can process around 1,600 passengers an hour.

Business travellers, including Gold and Silver Privilege Club members, can receive free access to the 7,000sq ft American Airlines Lounge which offers complimentary wifi, premium beverages, a full buffet and shower facilities.

The airline currently operates daily scheduled flights between Doha and New York using B777ER aircraft in a two-class configuration with 42 seats in Business Class and 293 in Economy.
