NY Governor Ms Kathy Hochul announced that construction of a new, world-class Terminal 6 at JFK International Airport will move forward early next year now that financial investments have been made and approvals have been secured for the first phase of the privately financed project, expected to cost $4.2 billion. This project is the final piece of the JFK Vision plan to get underway, and it will complete the transformation of the airport into a 21st century global gateway. The new Terminal 6 is a public-private partnership between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and JFK Millennium Partners - a consortium that includes Vantage Airport Group, an industry leading investor, developer, and manager of award-winning global airport projects, including LaGuardia Terminal B; American Triple I, a certified minority-owned investor, owner, developer, and manager of infrastructure assets; New York real estate operating company RXR; and JetBlue Airways. The JMP consortium will develop the new terminal in two phases, with the first new gates opening in 2026 and project completion anticipated in 2028. Approved in August 2021 by the Port Authority Board of Commissioners, the 1.2 million-square-foot Terminal 6, with capacity for 10 gates -- including nine wide body gates -- will connect seamlessly to JetBlue's Terminal 5. Terminal 7's current primary tenant, British Airways will move to a modernized and expanded Terminal 8 later this year, and the 60-year-old Terminal 7 will be demolished after the first phase of Terminal 6 is completed. The connected terminals spanning the current T6 and T7 sites will create an anchor for passenger travel on JFK's north side.The new Terminal 6 arrivals and departures hall will feel spacious, bright and airy thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings throughout the new terminal. Inspiring public art by New York-based artists and architectural elements depicting New York landmarks will create a unique sense of place. Passengers will enjoy more than 100,000 square feet of world-class shopping and dining featuring locally-based restaurateurs, craft beverage options and Taste NY stores.
