Holidaymakers catching flights with British Airways to New York JFK airport will soon have access to a range of new facilities.
It is set to overhaul its terminal at JFK in a plan that will cost some $30 million (£15.1 million) and span a period of 18 months.
The new facilities will include a premium check-in pavilion with a dedicated drop-off area for First and Executive Gold Club customers.
Members of BA’s Club World and Executive Club Silver schemes will have access to an enhanced and dedicated check-in area at JFK.
The final major change will be the renovation of terraces, first class and Concorde lounges to match facilities currently on offer at Heathrow Terminal 5.
Robin Hayes, the airline’s executive vice-president in the Americas, said: "In a time of rapidly increasing and robust competition, British Airways will now raise the competitive bar far higher than any of its JFK competitors.
"No other airline at JFK will come close to the standard and quality of what we intend to offer our customers. The new enhancements will place British Airways in the most enviable position to provide the best possible premium ground experience at JFK international airport."
