Air India has appointed acclaimed design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates to refurbish its lounges at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and New York’s John F Kennedy Airport.

The refurbishment and rebuilding is planned to begin shortly.

“The lounges will be designed to reflect the rich cultural heritage of India with world-class state-of-the-art amenities embodying the vibrant spirit of the new Air India – a global airline with an Indian heart,” the airline said in a statement.

Apart from a revamp of the two lounges, Air India is also working to expand its lounge network to other major airports in India and abroad for its firs, business class, and eligible members of its frequent flying programme and Star Alliance.

 The design partner, HBA, is known for signature projects for leading global brands like the Taj Group, Marriott, InterContinental, Hilton and Singapore Airlines.
