Alaska Airlines opens new airport lounge at New York’s JFK


The JFK Lounge in Terminal 7 is the first Alaska Lounge on the East Coast

Alaska Airlines today announces the debut of its first Alaska Lounge on the East Coast, opening at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). The new, reimagined lounge brings to life the company’s West Coast vibe with a cool, comfortable space to work or relax while traveling through JFK.

We included a fireplace to give more of a West Coast vibe, as well as some fun lighting fixtures and a custom sofa with power at every seat.

Alaska’s newest lounge features a living room-esque design with multiple seating areas designed with business and leisure travelers in mind. The lounge includes Starbucks-trained baristas who will create custom handcrafted espresso beverages and full-leaf tea beverages for guests. Travelers will have access to complimentary fresh foods including oatmeal and yogurt bars in the morning and salad and soup in the afternoon and evening. Guests can also enjoy a wide-selection of microbrews, West Coast wines or a signature cocktail from the lounge’s welcoming bar.

“We’re always looking to create warm, welcoming experiences for our guests,” said Brett Catlin, managing director of guest products at Alaska Airlines. “Our newest Alaska Lounge at JFK reflects the future of our lounge offering – a signature West Coast vibe, unique beverage selections and a focus on fresh, healthy food options. We’re also thrilled to be the first domestic lounge to introduce a full menu of barista-pulled handcrafted espresso beverages.”

With the top quality, complimentary food and beverage options, and the amazing view, guests will arrive to the plane refreshed and ready to go.

The Alaska Lounge is located on the mezzanine level of Terminal 7 at JFK. It is accessible to Alaska guests traveling through or out of Terminal 7 who have purchased a day pass or lounge membership or are flying First Class. All paid First Class guests receive complimentary access to the lounge, a benefit only offered by Alaska compared to other domestic carriers. In addition to the new JFK lounge, Alaska has lounges in Anchorage, Los Angeles, Portland, Oregon and three in Seattle, the airline’s largest hub.

In addition to the new lounge at JFK, Alaska Lounge membership provides access to over 90 airport lounges worldwide in cities like Chicago, London, Tokyo, Sydney, and Paris. This includes access to select Admirals Club locations when arriving or departing that day on a purchased or redeemed-mileage ticket on Alaska Airlines or American Airlines.

The Alaska Lounge offers our West Coast hospitality and a place to get away from the terminal.
