Alaska Airlines announced on Monday the opening of its first Alaska Lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The new lounge features baristas trained by Starbucks as well as a variety of foods and snacks including oatmeal and yogurt bars in the morning and soup and salad later in the day. The bar offers beer, wine from the West Coast of the United States, and a signature cocktail.

Lounge access is complimentary for all first-class passengers on Alaska.  The airline also sells day passes and lounge memberships.

Alaska has lounges in Anchorage; Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle.

The Seattle-based carrier, which recently completed the merger of customer-facing operations of Virgin America, moved all JFK operations to the airport’s Terminal 7 last fall.

Terminal 7 was built for British Airways predecessor BOAC and Air Canada and opened in 1970. It is currently run by British Airways and is the only airport terminal in the United States operated by a foreign carrier.
