The UK’s flagship carrier has reopened its Concorde Room at both Heathrow Terminal 5 and New York’s JFK airport as part of its lounge reopening plan.
The Concorde Rooms have been closed since March 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, however, reopened on 1st September as travel restrictions continue to lift.
As part of the reopening, BA has partnered with mixologist Mr Lyan to create a new cocktail menu featuring seven cocktails. Two of these are unique to the airline and celebrate BA’s heritage and colleagues.
British Airways also introduced the new ‘Forty Winks’ Sleep Pods to the Concorde Rooms earlier this year which will be available at both Heathrow and JFK.
Customers using the Concorde Room will also enjoy table service.
Tom Stevens, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said:
“As we start to gradually welcome back customers, we want to ensure that they have the best experience possible with British Airways. We are looking at every element of the customer experience, from sleep pods and signatures cocktails in our newly reopened lounges, to roast dinners onboard and additional benefits for our card holders - we want flying with British Airways to be memorable. Our teams will continue to innovate, and we look forward to sharing more exciting developments with our customers over the coming months.”
