Turkish Airlines recently opened a new lounge in Terminal 1 of New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The airline operates three flights per day from the airport and now premium passengers have luxurious, comfortable and hospitable lounge amenities to enjoy in a renovated, rebranded space.

“We’re committed to expanding our footprint across more U.S. gateways and the opening of the new lounge at JFK is yet another exciting accomplishment on this mission,” said Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, chairman of the board and executive committee, Turkish Airlines. “John F. Kennedy International Airport is an important and iconic gateway for North America and we’re proud to now offer our passengers transiting through the New York area an elevated lounge true to the Turkish Airlines experience.”

The new lounge, past the security checkpoint between Gates 2 and 3 in Terminal 1, measures about 4,600 square feet, accommodating up to 140 people and boasting a variety of table and lounge seating. Additional features include dark wood finishes, Mid Century-inspired décor, large windows facing the runway, touches of greenery and a prayer room.

When it comes to dining, passengers enjoy the flavors of Turkish cuisine with three meals per day including breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offering hot meal options, cold foods and appetizers, a variety of desserts, and hot and cold soft drink alternatives. Meals are prepared according to halal standards, with kosher options available.

The new lounge joins facilities in Miami (MIA) and Washington, D.C. (IAD). Available to Turkish Airlines’ business-class guests and Elite/Elite Plus members and Star Alliance first, business and Gold travelers, the lounge is open 9 a.m.–11:45 p.m.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
