There’s some pretty exciting news for JetBlue flyers that frequently travel out of JFK. Today, Friday, July 19, the first lounge will open at JFK terminal five, which will be operated by Airspace Lounge.
It will be open daily from 5AM till 11PM, and can be accessed the following ways:
- American Express Platinum card members and two guests or immediate family can access the lounge
- Aer Lingus premium passengers can access the lounge
- Access can be purchased for $25-35 depending on how “peak” the period is
The lounge has complimentary soft drinks, light snacks, coffee, wifi, printing, showers, etc., and then alcohol and more substantial food can be purchased in the lounge. Regardless of which method you use to enter, you’ll be given a $10 credit with your entry to purchase their premium products.
Anyway, I consider this to be exciting news. I really enjoy the JetBlue flying experience, though one reason I’ve avoided flying them out of NYC is because of the lack of practical lounge access. Given how frequent delays are out of NYC airports, having lounge access can be invaluable.
I look forward to checking the lounge out myself in the near future.
