JAMAICA, Queens — A major renovation gets the green light at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Terminal 4 is set for a massive $3.8 billion renovation and expansion, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday.
"The Terminal 4 expansion will be another milestone in the transformation of JFK Airport, with upgrades that will give passengers the world-class experience they expect when flying into New York," Cuomo said.
Among the extensive changes, there will be a 500,000-square-foot expansion of Terminal 4, which will have 16 new domestic gates, according to officials.
That addition will allow Delta airlines to move in 2023 from the 58-year-old Terminal 2, which the Port Authority will then demolish. Right now, Delta’s operations are split between Terminals 2 and 4.
There are also plans to modernize the JFK AirTrain, expand the Van Wyck Expressway, and build two new terminals.
