Primeclass Lounge at JFK

In 2019, Priemeclass Lounge at JFK started accepting Priority passes and many travelers have been enjoying everything this lounge has to offer.

If you’re looking for a luxurious airport lounge experience, Primeclass Lounge at JFK is the place to be. While I was able to find very few reviews online about this lounge, the few that I found gave me a good understanding of how passengers feel about it.

What is Primeclass Lounge?

The Primeclass Lounge at JFK is an airport lounge that offers passengers a comfortable place to relax or work before their flight. It is a 5,120-square-foot lounge in Terminal 1. During the Pandemic, the Terminal 1 location was temporarily closed but is now operational. There are some reports of a Primeclass lounge at Terminal 4 but wasn’t able to find up-to-date info on whether it is still operational.

Primeclass is a Swedish company that operates airport lounges around the world. This lounge is one of their flagship locations and it definitely lives up to the hype. It’s Zurich lounge is operated by Turkish-based TAV
