Aer Lingus to Move to Terminal 6 at New York-JFK in Early 2026

Aer Lingus will move to the new Terminal 6 at New York’s JFK Airport in early 2026, it has been announced.

The new $4.2bn state-of-the-art terminal is still under construction but will be up and running early in 2026.

Aer Lingus will also open a new signature lounge in the new Terminal 6 for its passengers, offering more space and seating capacity.

A new Aer Lingus check-in space will allow for a seamless check-in experience with self-service bag drop options for greater convenience. Aer Lingus customers can enjoy seamless connectivity within the same terminal with connecting partner JetBlue.   

Aer Lingus currently operates twice daily nonstop service from JFK Terminal 7 to Dublin, and daily to Shannon, Ireland, as well as daily service to Manchester, using Airbus A330 and A321LR aircraft. A dedicated Aer Lingus lounge is also currently available to premium passengers at JFK Terminal 7.  With US Pre Clearance facilities in Dublin and Shannon, Aer Lingus passengers using the Dublin-JFK and Shannon-JFK flights clear US immigration and customs inspections before boarding the flight to JFK, facilitating an easy exit from the airport on arrival.

“We’ve enjoyed a close partnership with Aer Lingus since they moved to JFK Terminal 7 in April 2023, and we’re thrilled to continue this partnership at the new T6 and welcome their passengers on our very first day of operations in early 2026,” said Steve Thody, CEO, JFK Millennium Partners.

‘’We are looking forward to our move to JFK Terminal 6 when construction is completed,’’ said Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer. ‘’The new terminal promises Aer Lingus customers a modern, light filled, tech enabled space, which will allow us to go above and beyond for our customers. The addition of a brand-new dedicated Aer Lingus lounge will further enhance our loyal customer’s experience providing them with a modern state of the art lounge.’’
