About The New Terminal:
- Scheduled to be completed by 2022, this revamped terminal will house both American Airlines and British Airways, meaning British Airways will finally move from Terminal 7 to Terminal 8 to consolidate itself with its Transatlantic joint venture partner.
- Currently, the two airlines offer 14 daily flights between New York JFK and London Heathrow.
- New York to London is considered “the most important and lucrative route for business in the world," by the Business Traveller
- The new terminal will have 9 new gates - 5 widebody jetbridges and 4 stands using buses (yay for avgeeks)
