British Airways Reopens Concorde Rooms at JFK and Heathrow Airports
British Airways has today announced the reopening of its Concorde Room at JFK and Heathrow airports. The reopening of the airline’s two exclusive lounges follows the British Airways’ flagship US lounge at JFK’s Terminal 7 that started to welcome back eligible customers from the start of August. Both Concorde Room locations have remained closed since March 2020.
To coincide with both Concorde Rooms opening their doors once again, British Airways will be introducing a new exciting cocktail menu with an array of elegant cocktails for customers to enjoy depending on their individual tastes and preferences, ahead of their flight.
Customers in the Concorde Room will continue to receive table service across the whole lounge, but visitors to other lounges will also benefit from using the airline’s new digital ‘Your Menu’ service which allows them to order food from the menu directly to their seat in the lounge with the use of a QR code close to them.
Concorde Rooms are technically separate from British Airways standard first class lounges. Plus there are only two locations in the world. So as you would expect, access is quite limited.
There two options to enjoy the luxuries of Concorde Rooms. One is to fly on a scheduled British Airways flight in First Class. The other is to earn 5,000 tier points in the airline’s Executive Club frequent flyer program, which gets you Gold status and a Concorde Room card.
