British Airways Released Planned Renovation and Modernization of New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport



British Airways has released some artists’ renderings and details on its planned renovation and modernization of Terminal 7 at its hub in New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The redesign, which will be completed at the end of 2018, is part of a $65 million investment in the airport and will include a new check-in area featuring an exclusive premium check-in zone, redesigned and updated lounges, along with new retail stores and restaurants.
In a statement, British Airways said the redesign “will transform the airport experience.”

Here’s a sneak peek at what it will include:
—BA is promising an “authentic New York culinary experience with local food and beverage concepts.” (That better include fresh bagels, knishes and Ray’s Pizza if they’re really talking authentic.)

—Sit-down restaurants, including the Brindle Room from former Food Network Chopped contestant Jeremy Spector; gourmet sandwiches at Boomwich; a NYC Burger Joint outlet; rolls, bowls, burgers and buns hot off the grill from Kobeyaki chef-led Japanese food, made to order; and FIKA, a world-class wine bar.

—A larger check-in area, as well as an exclusive premium check-in zone and waiting area, with access to fast track security.

—An immersive retail environment including duty-free shopping and concessions.

—New gate seating areas and workstations.

—Updated lounges with more space.

Once in the terminal at the retail and restaurant area, British Airways promises customers will never be more than five minutes away from their departure gate, where new seating will be installed.
