British Airways and American Airlines are promising seamless travel connections when the two carriers co-locate operations to newly renovated Terminal 8 at New York JFK International Airport.

Terminal 8 will open on 1 December, following a $400 million investment. It marks the completion of the first phase of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s redevelopment of the airport.

BA previously operated from Terminal 7.

American Airlines CEO Robert Isom said: “We are thrilled to welcome our long-standing joint business partner, British Airways, as it joins American and other oneworld partners at Terminal 8.

“As part of our investment to transform JFK into a leading global airport, we are excited to offer customers expanded terminal space, new check-in areas and elegant lounges.”

BA Chairman and CEO Sean Doyle added: “We announced our joint investment early in 2019 so it is an honour to reach this significant milestone with our business partner, American Airlines.

“From December 1, our customers and colleagues will be able to enjoy all the benefits that Terminal 8 has to offer.”
