JFK Terminals In 1994, a consortium of airlines - Air France, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, and Lufthansa - spearheaded the era of dazzling new terminals with the construction of Terminal 1. The new Terminal 1, completed in May 1998, consists of 684,000 square feet, 11 aircraft gates, retail shops, restaurants, and a dual-level frontage. Delta Air Lines is located in Terminals 2and 3, built in 1962 and 1960 respectively. In May 2001, the new Terminal 4, formerly the International Arrivals Building (IAB) was opened. The $1.4 billion terminal dramatically improved passenger service through the use of separate levels for departing and arriving passengers; consolidated ticketing and baggage operations; improved customer facilities, duty free and retail shops, bistros and other eateries, all in a mall-like environment. Terminal 5, the former TransWorld Airways terminal, is currently unoccupied. Terminal 6, formerly operated by TWA and now by JetBlue Airways, opened in 1969. JetBlue and the Port Authority have committed more than $7.5 million worth of interim improvements to Terminal 6 including wider roads, new ticket counters and refurbished restrooms, new baggage systems, and enhanced shops and restaurants. Terminal 7(British Airways) opened in 1970. In April 1997, British Airways, together with the Port Authority, invested $250 million in the complex, which included an additional building expansion with new retail outlets and concessions, new access roadways and improved parking facilities. Construction of this project began in 1998. The expansion program added 140,000 square-feet to the original area, and the terminal now consists of 350,000 square- feet with three additional wide-body gates for a total of 12 gates. Substantial improvements were made to both the departure and arrivals roadways and the terminal frontage. The parking lot in front of the terminal was also expanded significantly through the construction of a new deck over the existing lot. Terminal 8 opened in 1960 and houses American Airlines' international flights. Terminal 9 was built in 1959 and serves American Airline's domestic destinations. American Airlines began construction in November 1999 of a new $1.4 billion terminal complex to replace Terminal 9 and eventually Terminal 8. The complex, scheduled to open in the summer of 2005, will serve both domestic and international passengers. The new complex will also include a customs and immigration facility, a huge retail and concession space, and a new 1,940-space parking garage in front of the building. The new terminal is the largest single airline terminal at the airport.
