Expanded terminal 4 opens in New York at John F. Kennedy International Airport
Schiphol Group undertakes international activities not only with a view to consolidating the competitive position of the Mainport at the strategic, operational and financial level, but also to strengthen its organization and spread the commercial risks.
The international character of aviation is reflected by the many cross-border alliances, mergers and acquisitions that have occurred in recent years. Likewise, airports are increasingly joining forces to stimulate their continuous development within the international context in which they operate.
Schiphol Group applies strict criteria to the development of international activities and only undertakes them if they contribute to the position of the Schiphol Mainport and the associated investments.
JFKIAT LLC manages Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport and is the first private, non-airline company to be selected by the Port Authority of NY & NJ to operate a terminal at JFK.
