Earlier in the month, American Airlines and British Airways kicked off construction on a $344 million project at John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 8. The project aims to improve the overall customer experience with the addition of five gates, enhanced baggage systems, new lounges, premium check-in space, upgraded concessions and retail and more. Construction is due to wrap up in 2022.
“Our investment will put the 14 daily flights from JFK to London that we offer in partnership with British Airways in the same terminal and give customers premium check-in space, new joint lounges and a larger variety of retail and dining options,” said Robert Isom, president, American Airlines. “We will be adding more than 70,000 square feet to customer and operational spaces to create a truly world-class experience at JFK.”
“As we progress with the JFK modernization project, we are giving Terminal 8 a new look and layout in line with the modern, world-class standards that will define the airport’s ultimate transformation,” added Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York. “When this work is completed, Terminal 8 will accommodate more passengers who will be able to enjoy a better travel experience and will make the work of airport staff more efficient and more seamless.”

Opened this past November, Osaka Excel Tokyu Hotel rethinks the classic Japanese business hotel format in a delightful way.

The lobby adds to that with a whimsical, but sophisticated mix of artwork and decorative ornaments, with a color palette and ornamentation that extends to 364 private rooms and suites throughout 17 floors.
