Air France Shows Off a New Business Class Lounge at JFK
Air France inaugurated its fully renovated lounge yesterday at the heart of New York John F. Kennedy International Airport, located at terminal 1.
Exclusively reserved for customers traveling in La Première, Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus members, the lounge features a host of services in a warm and private atmosphere, offering customers an even greater comfortable and relaxing experience before their trip.
“On our legendary New York-Paris route, our passengers are already enjoying our latest long-haul cabin classes which are gradually equipping our Boeing 777 and our superjumbo the A380. Today’s inauguration of this beautiful new lounge completes our offer for our Premium customers and is part of our strategy to upgrade all our products and service, both on the ground and on board,” said Frédéric Gagey, Chairman and CEO of Air France.
The new light-filled lounge welcomes customers in a relaxing environment with white and wood tones enhanced by touches of red, Air France’s signature color. A large mezzanine offers an impressive view of the runways. The curved architectural lines are signed by design and branding agency, Brandimage.
On arriving in the lounge, customers can obtain all the information they need about their trip from Air France agents at the reception desk.
Two buffets featuring hot and cold snacks, as well as a wide range of Champagne, French wines and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, feature French cuisine with a selection of fresh produce and gourmet dishes.
At the heart of the lounge, a relaxation area with subdued lighting offers comfortable seats. Nearby, customers can relax on loungers. A Clarins well-being area offers beauty treatments free of charge. Customers also have access to shower stalls complete with Clarins products. It is also possible to work in quiet conditions thanks to free Wi-Fi access. Moreover, a wide selection of local and international press is available in French and English.
La Première customers receive a personalized welcome on their arrival at New York-JFK airport. They are accompanied to the lounge, where a VIP area is exclusively reserved for them. In this private area, located on the mezzanine, they can enjoy dishes signed by Joel Robuchon and served by a Maitre d’Hôtel.
