Back in December Air France unveiled its refurbished dining facility at is lounge in New York JFK Terminal one and it promised more upgrades to come in February this year.
True to its word Air France has just opened its new beauty treatment centre (I’m going to call it a spa from now on) at its JFK T1 lounge in conjunction with skincare specialist la Prairie.
The new spa facility is open to Air France’s La Première (First Class) and Business Class customers as well as to Flying Blue Platinum and Gold card holders.
The new spa covers a little over 320 square feet (30 square meters) and comes with:
- Two private beauty booths
- An area for “rapid beauty treatments”
- A massage table for longer treatments
Air France is offering flyers a “moment of relaxation and well-being” in the form of free facial treatments:
- Art of Rejuvenation treatment (30 minutes) reserved for La Première customers
- Art of Illumination treatment (20 or 30 minutes-option)
- Art of Indulgence treatment (20 or 30 minutes-option)
All of these treatments will need to be booked with lounge agents upon arrival at the lounge.
320 square feet isn’t a large space so, while its great that Air France is offering this to its lounge guests, the number of booths on offer suggests that only a small number of people will be able to use this in the time leading up to Air France’s departures.
Also, while Air France only mentions the three free facial treatments in its press release, the presence of an area for rapid beauty treatments would suggest that treatments other than just facials will be available…possibly for a fee(?)
Overall this is a nice touch from Air France but I recommend arriving early for your flight and attempting to reserve a treatment as soon as you enter the lounge if you’re to have any chance of trying out on of these treatments when you next visit.
