New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal 8 has completed remodeling and expansion, Iberia will become the next Oneworld carrier after British Airways to move into this new Terminal.
Iberia Moves From JFK’s Terminal 7 To Terminal 8
Starting December 1, 2022, Spanish carrier Iberia will be moving from New York JFK’s Terminal 7 to the newly renovated Terminal 8. With the move, the airline will be joining American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and a few other Oneworld partners.
With a $400 million investment in the remodeling, expansion, and improvement of the terminal, this move will bring the Oneworld partners closer together. Both Iberia and Level will be located in zones 6 and 7 of the Terminal 8 check-in area. Iberia will have four check-in counters for Economy travelers and two additional ones exclusively for business and elite customers.
New York JFK’s Renovated Terminal 8
The new Terminal 8 will provide easier and faster connections between Iberia and American Airlines to domestic or international routes. Previously, in order to make a domestic connection in the US, passengers flying on Iberia had to transfer terminals but this has improved greatly now.
The newly renovated terminal also features three brand-new lounges:
- British Airways Greenwich Lounge
- British Airways Soho Lounge
- British Airways Chelsea Lounge
Each lounge has been designed with original high-end finishes, evoking a unique feeling of space, to enhance the customer experience. In addition, business customers and Iberia Plus elites will enjoy a priority security lane too. I will be going over the new lounges and facilities on a different post.
Starting December 1, 2022, Iberia along with British Airways will be moving from New York John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal 7 to Terminal 8. With the move, Iberia will share the terminal with the majority of Oneworld partners, offering seamless connections and experiences.
