British Airways terminal at New York JFK airport to close

British Airways is to leave its own terminal at New York’s JFK airport and move in with its alliance partner, American Airlines. The move from Terminal 7 to 8 will take place in 2022. BA is the only non-US airline to have a terminal at New York’s premier airport. It has occupied Terminal 7 for decades, including through the Concorde era. It is the main tenant but shares the terminal with its sister airline, Iberia, and eight other airlines.  The move to Terminal 8 will allow Terminal 7 to be demolished to accommodate a much-expanded presence for the “home town” airline, jetBlue.
