American Airlines, British Airways and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) have announced plans to co-locate their operations in New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Terminal 8. The companies said moving under the same roof will allow American and British Airways to enhance their services between New York and London, further strengthening the airlines’ Atlantic Joint Business partnership. American and British Airways will invest $344 million in Terminal 8 over the next three years to prepare for the co-location in 2022.

British Airways will be relocating from its current operation in Terminal 7 in 2022.

American Airlines’ President, Robert Isom, said: “Investing in our terminal and welcoming our partners is a win-win for both customers and team members at American and British Airways. Co-locating with British Airways will allow our customers unprecedented convenience and flexibility between these two world-class cities.”

British Airways Chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said: “We’re excited to announce our move to Terminal 8 alongside American Airlines, our Atlantic Joint Business partner. “Offering the best customer experience at JFK now and in the future is a top priority. We look forward to working with the Port Authority and American Airlines to continue building a world-class trans-Atlantic travel experience in our new home from 2022.”
