A newcomer to the airport VIP services sphere, VIP ONE aims at helping passengers who fly out of New York JFK’s Terminal 1, where long and slow security lines tend to be the norm. (JFK Terminal 1 does not offer CLEAR or TSA PRE Check.)
VIP ONE offers various escort and meet-and-greet packages, with the promise to whisk customers through security and deliver them to their preferred lounge or their departure gate.
VIP ONE also operates their own lounge. Situated landside (outside security), the club features a small but comfortable seating area which doubles as a private lobby for VIP ONE members. At the lounge, guests will find TSA bins for their electronics and liquids. Once they’re ready to go through security, an agent will take them straight to the metal detector.
Guests who wish to linger at the lounge will find a modest snack selection as well as alcoholic beverages.
Since November 2023, VIP ONE welcomes Priority Pass members, offering a convenient and cost effective to breeze through security. Select airlines (including Air France and Lufthansa) also offer complimentary VIP ONE service to First Class passengers.
Note: Terminal 1 is not connected airside to Terminals 2-8. VIP ONE is exclusively for passengers flying out of Terminal 1.
