Moving under the same roof will allow American Airlines and British Airways to offer enhanced service between New York and London, further strengthening the airlines’ Atlantic Joint Business partnership.
American Airlines and British Airways will invest USD344 million in Terminal 8 over the next three years to prepare for the co-location in 2022.
British Airways moving from its current operation in Terminal 7 will allow the two airlines to offer even better service between New York and London — and beyond.
This USD344 million investment in Terminal 8 will include improvements in the overall customer experience, including the addition of five widebody gates and four adjacent widebody hard stands, enhanced baggage systems, new lounges, premium check-in space and upgraded concessions and retail options.
Additionally, customers arriving in New York will enjoy the ability to more conveniently connect onto other American Airlines flights and customers departing New York will gain the flexibility of 14 daily flights to London all departing from the same terminal.
