Cathay Pacific has announced that it will relocate its operations at New York JFK airport in the new year.

Effective from January 15, the move will see the Hong Kong-based carrier transfer from Terminal 7, which is currently operated by British Airways, to Terminal 8.

The move means that Cathay Pacific passengers will be able to connect with a number of Oneworld carriers, principally American Airlines for onwards flights, without transferring between terminals.

American Airlines’ lounges in terminal 8 are currently being refurbished – these are the Admirals Club and Flagship Lounge at Terminal 8. Early reports suggest the Flagship lounge has reopened – although it is now called the International First Class Lounge.

For more details see Lounge update.

Cathay Pacific recently reopened its first and business class lounges at Heathrow T3 following extensive renovation.

It also plans to boost frequencies from Gatwick and Manchester from summer 2017.
