LSG Sky Chefs lounge company handles Lufthansa at JFK
LSG Sky Chefs Lounge GmbH (LLG) began managing the Lufthansa lounges at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport earlier this month.
The new contract has a four-year term and includes the Lufthansa Senator, Business and First Class lounges, which are also accessible to Star Alliance passengers.
The Lufthansa lounge area at JFK has three floors, and handles approximately 92,000 passengers a year. The LLG has a lounge concept that combines Lufthansa’s brand values with local trends and global passenger needs.
“Fresh, authentic handmade products played a vital role for us when we were developing our food and beverage concept,” explained Jörg Tüttelmann, Vice President of Culinary Excellence at LSG Sky Chefs. “The teams took to the streets of New York seeking inspiration in what and how people are currently eating and consuming there. These observations, and our many years of experience, were incorporated into our concept.”
Lufthansa First Class passengers can now enjoy short ribs braised sous vide, Maine lobster bisque, classic veal schnitzel and premium champagne and wine selection. The Senator lounge, a New York-style bar offers classic cocktails. Meals in the Business and Senator lounges are served buffet-style but also follow the general culinary concept.
“Our partnership with Lufthansa at JFK is a key milestone in our expansion plans. At the same time, it is an acknowledgement of the success of our collaboration at existing hubs in Europe,” Jens H. Kreutzer, Managing Director of LSG Sky Chefs Lounge GmbH. “The entire team has been looking forward to welcoming the first guests at the New York lounges.”
