Air France Lounge JFK is a 10,000 SF premier passenger lounge. The lounge is also utilized by Air Japan passengers and services approximately 700 passengers per day. The renovation consisted of custom millwork, food service equipment upgrades, upgrading the electrical service, new LED light fixtures, a custom curved high gloss solid surface reception desk and SPA rooms operated by Clarins USA.
Several existing areas of the lounge were refurbished on site including a 45’ long atrium wall approximately 20’ high which previously consisted of laminated panels. The wall received an MDF overlay and custom wall covering fabricated locally to match the Air France standard. The standard Air France specifications for carpet, tile, signage, and wall covering were matched by U.S. manufacturers and released during the pre-construction phase in anticipation of an aggressive schedule. In addition, Holt worked directly with Terminal 1 Management and TSA to convert the lounge to a pre-security status for the duration of the project.
