British Airways has announced its plans to invest $110 million in U.S. airports over the next five years.
Around $65 million of that will go directly towards New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal 7 where they have their home base, and the rest of it will be used to improve the existing airport lounges in Boston, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Houston, and Seattle.
Alex Cruz, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of British Airways released a statement about the move.
“We are excited to start work on a targeted investment plan to make improvements for our customers. We have already introduced the newest aircraft in our fleet onto many of our popular routes in the U.S. and we want to ensure the lounge facilities match that premium experience.
“Next year we will be flying to 25 cities in the U.S. It is a very important market for British Airways, which is why we have the most flights to Europe and fly to more cities in the U.S. than any other European airline.”
