A revision to the agreement the Port Authority of New York and New has with JFK Millennium Partners has been made. This will culminate in the building of a top of the line new international Terminal 6, anchoring the airport’s northside.
While the project was meant to begin last year, due to COVID-19 air travel restrictions it was postponed. Since then there has been some restructuring which is a positive step in the ambitious JFK transformation.
Governor Cuomo explained:
“The transformation of JFK Airport into a world-class gateway is another distinct testament to New York’s comeback and to our determination to build back better. This historic private investment will not only fortify New York’s reputation as our nation’s front door to the world, but also sets an example for how this country can tackle bold infrastructure projects that will jumpstart our economy with thousands of good-paying jobs even amid profound challenges like the pandemic.”
The terminal will connect to Terminal 5 and be able to hold 10 new gates, check-in halls, arrival spaces and more, all designed to enhance customer experience.
