More than 750,000 passengers have used British Airways’ First Wing channel at Heathrow Terminal 5 since opening a year ago.
The exclusive check-in area for First, Gold Executive Club and Oneworld Emerald passengers enables travellers to pass through a dedicated security channel leading directly into the First lounge.
The initiative has also reduced the number of passengers travelling through the normal security search areas.
BA is re-designing its Terminal 7 in New York to create a new and improved First check-in area, drawing inspiration from The First Wing at Heathrow.
Brand and customer experience director Carolina Martinoli said: “Since we opened The First Wing last year the feedback from customers has been incredibly positive.
“They really value the smooth and swift experience from check-in through security and into the lounge.”
