British Airways has unveiled details of its plan to redesign Terminal 7 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, US.

With more than $65m investment, the redesigned terminal will offer an enhanced airport experience for the several passengers who travel through it each week.

The project will see the development of an upgraded, spacious check-in area to ensure fast and smooth passenger journey, an exclusive new premium check-in zone with a fast-track security lane, and redesigned and modernised lounges accommodating additional space to relax, dine and work.

New gate seating areas equipped with additional power outlets will also be built in Terminal 7 at JFK to provide customer satisfaction and convenience.

The investment will also involve the launch of an authentic New York culinary experience, in addition to an enhanced retail experience for duty-free shopping and concessions.

"The new environment at Terminal 7 is designed for our customers to enjoy a smoother, faster and more relaxed airport experience."

British Airways Customer head Abigail Comber said: “We are currently working behind-the-scenes with top architects and designers to create a beautiful new space for our customers to relax, dine and work in before they take off.

“The new environment at Terminal 7 is designed for our customers to enjoy a smoother, faster and more relaxed airport experience. This will involve significantly increasing the number of people we can seat for in-flight dining, re-styling the space and adding new lighting, bars and furniture.”

Customers in all cabins will be provided with a wide range of cuisine and refreshment options, while Business class, First customers, and Gold and Silver Executive Club card holders will benefit from completely redeveloped lounges with more space and restaurant-style pre-flight dining.

The redesign at JFK is slated to be complete at the end of next year.
