British Airways will be moving its operations to Terminal 8 at JFK on November 17th.

The move of British Airways to Terminal 7 is a bold statement about its relationship with the US. The Oneworld partners have invested $400 million into this major terminal upgrade since it was first announced.

The new home of British Airways will have five new gates for wide-bodied aircraft, three lounges that feature a new Champagne bar, and a co branded premium check-in area.

The first outbound flight from the new terminal will leave on Friday, November 18.


It wasn't built in a day. Even the grandest of airport extensions need a little time, and British Airways executives are laying out a two week transition period starting in November. The airline believes it will be in the new terminal by early December, but if you wander around the old terminal during that time, you'll know why.

By the middle of this decade, the entire $13 billion redevelopment of the airport will be completed. Terminal 7 will eventually be replaced by a new Terminal 6.

British Airways has a new subscription plan forAvios.

The new space of the airline will make it easier to connect to countries on the other side of the Atlantic.

Tom Stevens is the director of brand and customer experience for British Airways. They will be able to travel to more than 30 destinations across the US, Caribbean and Latin America with American Airlines.
