American Airlines Federal Credit Union (AA Credit Union) recently celebrated the grand opening of a new branch facility at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). The celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception. John Tippets, CEO, Angie Owens, President, and Lori Hall, Senior Vice President - Marketing and Operations of AA Credit Union, presided at the event, which was attended by more than 500 guests and the media.
The new branch, located in International Terminal 8, provides a convenient facility to serve American Airlines, American Eagle and other air transportation employees working at the airport.
"We've come a long way since our humble beginnings in a tiny facility on the ramp level some 15 years ago," said Tippets. "This new facility stands as a testament to the dedication of this New York team to support our member-owners in reaching their financial goals."
"We are so pleased to provide this full service branch to meet the lending, new account and depository needs of our potential and existing members. This new branch provides a 24-hour ATM, a spacious lobby area, and improved handicap accessibility," said Owens. "Plus, having our branch next to the airport employee bus stop is especially convenient for our member-owners working at JFK."
