• Delta plans JFK expansion

    2010-08-11

    Delta has announced plans to expand New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, with a $1.2 billion construction plan recently being approved by the Port Authority.

    According to Bloomberg, the new plan will see Delta's existing Terminal 4 expanded by 418,000 square-feet. Delta also plans to link Terminal 4 with Terminal 2, which is also used by the airline. The company uses the airport as a major hub for international flights.

    The company also plans to give the existing facility a much-needed update. Terminal 4 has come under fire from passengers for being outdated compared to other modern airports.

    "Customers equate that to a third-world country, and I think they're right," Delta Treasurer Paul Jacobson said on April 26 at an airline-finance conference in New York. "We've got to improve facilities at JFK."

    As part of the plan, Delta will demolish Terminal 3, formerly known as the Pan-Am Worldport, an area which still retains it's 1960's look. Delta will use the area to park jets that will service the expanded Terminal 4.

    Once completed, the airline will gain nine more gates. The company hopes the project will be done by 2013.
