British Airways has rolled out charging stations at their Galleries Lounge in Terminal 7 at JFK Airport in New York.
The charging stations are from New York based Brightbox.
British Airways has been offering the Brightbox amenity to fliers in their Executive Lounge since 2013 and is now adding more stations to areas in Terminal 7.
Placement of the British Airways branded Brightbox® Mark3 charging stations throughout the state-of-the-art Galleries Lounge in JFKs Terminal 7 is providing British Airways First and Club World customers, as well as Gold and Silver Executive Club members, with a secure charging amenity that lets them continue to communicate, navigate, search, shop, share, snack, dine, pay, play, and relax before or between their flights, resting assured that their phones are being safely and optimally charged in a station that delivers both physical security and data privacy.
Smart phone users simply swipe a credit/debit or complimentary card to open an available station chamber, plug in their mobile device or accessory to one of three industry standard charging cords, close the chamber and return later to swipe the same card to retrieve their charged phone.
The ability to safely charge improves the passenger experience, helping to competitively differentiate an airline and its offerings. It simplifies life for passengers en route, enabling them to stay connected to work, family, friends, and social apps, knowing they can securely charge their phones at the airport terminal before or after their flight.

Don Rossi, Senior VP of Sales for Brightbox:
It’s all about connectivity, communication and satisfaction, said . Travelers require a trusted recharging solution when they’re on the go. They need to connect with business or family and being without charge can be a real problem. Brightbox ensures that they will always make those connections when they are at the airport and it gives airlines another route to customer satisfaction.
