Iberia will move from Terminal 7 to the newly renovated Terminal 8 at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport on Thursday 1 December, where it will share operations with American Airlines, British Airways and Finnair. Thanks to a $400 million investment to refurbish, expand and upgrade the terminal, the move will bring oneworld’s partners closer together.

Terminal 8 is twice the size of New York’s Madison Square Garden and will accommodate around 10 million passengers a year.

T8 will offer five new boarding gates and four new parking positions for wide-body aircraft; an expanded baggage handling system, 130,000 square meters of additional terminal space, and an enhanced shopping experience for its customers.

Both Iberia and Level will be located in zones 6 and 7 of the Terminal 8 check-in area. Iberia will have four counters to serve customers traveling in Economy class and two additional counters for differentiated attention to Business and Top Tier customers.
