British Airways has opened its revamped Club Lounge at New York JFK’s Terminal 7, with new features including a bar in partnership with Brewdog.
The redesigned business class lounge follows the refurbishment of the carrier’s First lounge at the airport last year, and completes a $65 million investment at the terminal.
Facilities at the 2,000 sqm facility include an entertainment room with Sony technology, seating areas with “ample work stations with power outlets to maximize time in the office”, a separate brasserie-style dining room, and the reopened Elemis Spa.
There are now two bars for guests to choose from – the self-service Quaich Bar in partnership with the Craigellachie Hotel in Speyside, Scotland, which will have a bartender on hand at peak times – and a new Brewdog craft beer room, part of the carrier’s partnership with the Scottish brewer which has seen the launch of a bespoke Speedbird 100 ale and discounts at Brewdog bars for Executive Club members.
Commenting on the news Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience said:
“JFK airport is like a second home to Heathrow so it’s great to mark the final step in our significant customer investment with the opening of our new Club and First lounges.
Every detail has been carefully designed and we’ve created a space to meet our customers’ needs – whether they want to relax and have a meal or enjoy a craft beer and catch up on the world news.”
