The largest passenger terminal at New York JFK, Terminal 8, which is twice the size of the city’s Madison Square Garden venue, welcomed its newest family member yesterday (Sunday) as Cathay Pacific began relocating operations from Terminal 7.
Hong Kong’s home carrier says the move gives passengers a more seamless journey when connecting to flights operated by Cathay’s oneworld alliance partner, American Airlines, which has a significant presence in Terminal 8.
Director service delivery James Ginns said: “Terminal 8 has first-rate facilities and amenities in addition to the significant connectivity advantages that the move brings and will further enhance the delivery of our brand promise of a ‘Life Well Travelled’.”
Cathay’s First and Business Class passengers, plus eligible Marco Polo Club members, will have the option of relaxing in American Airlines’ Admirals Club or the Flagship Lounge, which American says is set to be the most impressive on the airline’s network once extensive renovations are completed in April.
It will feature updated interiors, more space, additional privacy and a more personalised service as well as the introduction of Flagship First Dining, with a seasonal multi-course menu featuring fresh regionally-inspired dishes designed by an executive chef.
