Earlier this month, Air France unveiled a La Prairie beauty treatment center within its international lounge at JFK Airport’s Terminal 1. La Prairie, a luxury skincare company, will work with the airline as its new wellness partner.
“As one of the leaders in luxury skincare, La Prairie was the natural choice for Air France’s new spa partner in the JFK lounge," said Stephane Ormand, vice president and general manager of Air France KLM. "We are committed to enhancing the airport experience for our customers, and by partnering with luxury brands like La Prairie we continue to elevate the lounge offering.”
The 323 square foot spa, located within the Air France lounge at JFK, features two private treatment rooms and sitting areas. It is also furnished with two private beauty booths with a massage table for extended treatments. In addition, there is an area intended for quick beauty treatments available for customers.

The JFK Terminal 1 lounge is open to Air France’s La Première and Business customers, as well as, Flying Blue Platinum and Gold members. Air France passengers must schedule treatments with the airline's agents after arriving at the lounge. These services are free for eligible travelers.
The spa offers three treatments choices. The "Art of Rejuvenation" treatment, which lasts 30 minutes, is intended solely for La Première customers. The other options include the "Art of Illumination" treatment and the "Art of Indulgence" treatment, both of which are available for 20 or 30 minutes.
Air France debuted a completely renovated dining area in its New York-JFK lounge in December. In the area , located on the mezzanine, the airline has added new furniture and imitation leather couches, inspired by a Parisian brasserie. The furniture, as well as blue and grey tones and atmospheric lighting , has been updated to provide a pleasant and more intimate atmosphere.
The mezzanine floor has also been redesigned, incorporating light and anthracite grey shades. The area is equipped with 34 tables for 2, a high table with 6 seats for dining opposite the runways and a round table seating 6.
The new dining area has been designed to offer customers the Night Service, which provides Business customers with a good night’s sleep on flights between New York and Paris. Rather than waiting to board to have dinner, passengers can enjoy a gourmet French meal in the airport lounge and then get a good night’s sleep in a quiet, private cabin, with a seat that transforms into a lie-flat bed. When they awake, they will be greeted with breakfast before landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
