Air France opens new lounge at New York JFK

Air France has unveiled its fully renovated lounge at Terminal 1 in New York’s JFK International Airport.

Exclusively reserved for customers travelling in la première and business, and flying blue elite plus members, the lounge features a host of services, offering even greater comfort before a passenger’s trip.

The new lounge welcomes customers into a relaxing environment and features white and wooden decor with touches of red - the company's signature colour.

The large mezzanine offers impressive views of the runways, and the curved architectural lines have been created by design and branding agency, Brandimage.

On arriving in the lounge, customers can receive all the information they need about their trip from Air France agents at the reception desk.

The lounge has two buffets serving hot and cold snacks, as well as a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, including champagne and French wines, where a range of dishes vary depending on the time of day, with customers able to choose to dine before boarding.

At the heart is a relaxation area with subdued lighting and comfortable seats, and it also features a Clarins well-being area offering complimentary beauty treatments, together with access to shower stalls complete with Clarins products.


Guests can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi access and choose to work in the quiet area, or enjoy the wide selection of local and international media, available in French and English.

La Première customers receive a personalised welcome on their arrival at New York-JFK airport and are accompanied to the lounge, where a VIP area is exclusively reserved for them.

Located in the reserved area on the mezzanine, guests can enjoy signature dishes created by Joel Robuchon, served by a Maitred'Hôtel.

FrédéricGagey, chairman and CEO of Air France, says: "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."
