British Airways has confirmed plans to switch operations to New York JFK’s Terminal 8 in the coming weeks.

As previously reported, BA is moving from Terminal 7 to Terminal 8 to join transatlantic joint business partner and fellow Oneworld carrier American Airlines.

The move is part of a $400 million investment in facilities at Terminal 8, which will feature five new gates for widebodied aircraft, a co-branded premium check-in area, and three lounges including a new Champagne Bar.

Business Traveller‘s US edition reports that BA’s first flight into Terminal 8 will take place on November 17, with the first outbound departure from the terminal following on November 18.

There will then be a two-week transitional period, during which the carrier will operate from both Terminal 7 and Terminal 8, before the relocation is completed at the start of December.

The eventual plan is for JFK’s Terminal 7 to be demolished and replaced by a new Terminal 6 later this decade.

Commenting on the news Tom Stevens, director of brand and customer experience at British Airways, said:

“Our move to the redeveloped and expanded Terminal 8 will bring a range of benefits for our customers. This includes a better transfer experience, enabling them to travel to more than 30 destinations across the United States, Caribbean, and Latin America with American Airlines.”
