New Lounge in New York

Today we cut the green ribbon at our new business lounge at JetBlue’s state-of-the-art Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. The business lounge epitomises our traditional Irish roots while providing modern convenience, functionality and relaxation to guests.


The lounge provides an oasis of calm within a busy terminal. With natural-stone wall accents, oak floors, raindrop-shaped light fixtures and pint glasses along the bar, Business Class and Gold Circle members will enjoy the warmth of Ireland before they begin their journey.

The lounge forms part of an overall re-launch of our Business Class service. The newly launched Business Class provides a unique space on board based on our guests’ needs – depending on whether they wish to sleep, work, dine or simply relax. The new business lounge at JFK seeks to replicate these features for guests before they depart.
