Delta T4 Expands Yet Again

Today Delta Air Lines continued its  $1.2 billion investment to enhance and expand Concourse B in Terminal 4 at JFK with the opening of Phase two.  The $175 million project adds 11 new gates and 75,000 square feet to the terminal.

The new gates will replace the Delta Connection operation in Terminal 2 and provides passengers with significant enhancements and access to amenities such as the Sky Club and restaurants. Previously, customers would have to go outside to access aircraft.  The new gate space will fully enclosed, climate-controlled jetways.

The new addition brings an additional 11 gates to the terminal, giving what Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) calls more area that will further enhance visitor’s first impressions of New York City.

“The newest enhancements at Terminal 4 underscore the significant investment Delta is making in New York City’s airports—nearly $2 billion over the last six years,” said Delta President Ed Bastian. “Our customers and employees are benefitting from substantial enhancements to our JFK operations, and we thank our partners at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and JFKIAT for working with Delta to create a world-class facility that meets—and, we believe, exceeds—the expectations of today’s modern travelers.”

The expanded Terminal 4 improves the customer experience of the 12 million passengers that Delta handles through JFK each year. It builds on the redevelopment of the terminal, which opened in 2013, that included nine new and seven renovated international gates.

“Delta’s investments at JFK will increase capacity and improve the experience of millions of visitors–both which will positively impact the city’s economy, said President of New York City Economic Development Corporation Kyle Kimball. “We congratulate Delta, JFKIAT and the Port Authority on today’s expansion and look forward to their continued progress at the cities airports.”

Delta has invested nearly $2 billion in NYC area airports, leading the way in installing state-of-the-art technology, all aimed at creating a better passenger experience.
