Want to escape the busy terminal at New York JFK while setting your
boarding process into motion? Here’s a gift from JetBlue Airways! You
have every reason to be happy now. No drudgery or usual airport
commotion. Just escape into the JetBlue Airway’s flagship JFK Terminal
5. The airline has opened its first airport lounge at New York’s John F.
Kennedy International Airport. The recently inaugurated Airspace JFK
lounge is a big relief indeed. It’s undoubtedly an escape from the busy
terminal and a pleasant place to hang out.
Airspace JFK is located in Terminal 5 near gates 24 and 25. It is being
operated by Swissport subsidiary Airspace Lounge. You won’t have to
spend big bucks for seeking access to the lounge. Just pay $25 and have a
blissful stay prior to boarding your flights. It’s open for all
travelers. You don’t need to buy a first class ticket or travel in
business class to gain access here.
The 2,500 square feet lounge has a capacity to accommodate 60 people.
However, during the peak times the passengers will be charged $35. Amex
Platinum cardholders and Aer Lingus first and business class passengers
are the lucky ones. They can just walk in for free into the lounge.
Feeling hungry? Just don’t worry. You need to have a $10 credit toward
menu items and you can treat yourself to bar snacks, sweets, and a whole
range of cocktails, wines and craft beers. If you don’t want to spend
on your eats then get Peet’s coffees and teas and light snacks, which
are for free.
