New York JFK Terminal 8 continues to enhance its retail line-up, offering new and diverse products while delivering exceptional service levels
 
More than a dozen high-end brands took center stage at New York JFK Terminal 8 on June 14 for an experiential event featuring live demonstrations and activations.
 
Airport partners from International Shoppes, American Airlines, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Westfield celebrated the success of the new luxury shops, which opened last year at T8.
 
Activations included a professional tie-knotter who provided easy-to-follow tutorials at Hugo Boss, while handwriting experts analyzed guests’ signatures to reveal interesting personality traits inside Montblanc. 
 
Meanwhile, floral designers at Salvatore Ferragamo created one-of-a-kind purses made completely out of flowers.
 
“Our travelers expect the very best from us every time they travel,” said Mike McKanna, Managing Director, American Airlines.
 
“Westfield and International Shoppes have brought an entirely new shopping experience that really caters to our modern, sophisticated customers, and they’re loving it.”
 
Luxury beauty brands such as Chanel feed into the center of a new 5,594 square feet duty free store

That includes five specialty stand-alone boutiques ranging from Salvatore Ferragamo and Bulgari to luxury beauty brands such as Dior and Chanel that feed into the center of a new 5,594 square feet duty free store.
 
“Our roots are in luxury and we are always looking to create the next level of retail excitement,” said Matthew Greenbaum, Vice President, International Shoppes.
 
“With Westfield and American Airlines we’ve redeveloped the whole retail landscape and almost doubled our footprint in Terminal 8. Consumers are really responding to the world-class brands.”
 
Dominic Lowe, Executive Vice President, Westfield Airports, added: “The results are spectacular. Terminal 8 continues to enhance its retail line-up, offering new and diverse products while delivering exceptional service levels.
