Air France is now offering beauty treatments in its Terminal 1 lounge at New York’s JFK International Airport under an exclusive partnership with luxury beauty and skincare specialist, La Prairie. After revamping its dining area in December, the Air France lounge has now drawn its attention to customer wellbeing.
This new space, spanning 30 square metres and decorated in La Prairie’s emblematic style, is accessible to La Première and Business customers and Flying Blue Platinum and Gold members. It is equipped with two private beauty booths, with a massage table for longer treatments.
Prior to their flight, customers can now enjoy a moment of relaxation and wellbeing in the expert care of La Prairie beauty care professionals and the brand’s high-end products, free of charge. La Prairie beauty experts offer a selection of facial treatments:
- Art of Rejuvenation treatment (30 minutes), reserved for La Première customers
- Art of Illumination treatment (20- or 30-minute option)
- Art of Indulgence treatment (20- or 30-minute option)
Customers must reserve these treatments with the Air France agents on arrival in the lounge.
New dining area
In December 2018, Air France unveiled a completely renovated dining area in its New York-JFK lounge.
Business customers enjoy the Night Service offer in a brand-new setting, with a more contemporary feel dominated by white and wood tones.
New furniture and imitation-leather couches, inspired by a Parisian brasserie, have been custom-designed to offer a convivial atmosphere. Blue and grey tones along with atmospheric lighting have been added to create a more intimate feel. The mezzanine floor has also been redesigned, incorporating light and anthracite grey shades. In total, the area is equipped with close to 34 tables for two, a high table with six seats for dining opposite the runways and a round table seating six.
Night Service: dine in the lounge and sleep on board
This new dining area has been designed to offer customers the Night Service, a service anticipating Business customers’ need to enjoy a good night’s sleep on night flights between New York and Paris. They can enjoy, at no extra charge, the same gourmet French meal in the airport lounge as the one served on board, with their meal served at their table. The meal compromises a starter, hot dish, cheese, dessert and a wine and champagnes list.
During the flight, customers can enjoy a good night’s sleep in the comfort of the Business class cabin with a lie-flat bed; or, customers with a healthy appetite can choose to eat again during the flight. Breakfast is served before landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Since the launch of the Night Service in 2016 (AF009/AF011), close to 50% of customers travelling in Business class on night flights dine in the lounge.
Art at the heart of the lounge
To mark the new design of its lounge in New York, Air France offers its customers art exhibitions year-round. From January to June 2019, customers can discover the universe of Roger Bezombes through a collection of 16 lithographic posters created by the French artist for an Air France promotional campaign in the 1970s. The collection was also exhibited at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in 1981, and evokes the joy and art of travel. Artwork from the “La vie autour du monde” poster series is presented by Bezombes’ grandson, gallery owner Eric Mourlot.
