Redevelopment of Terminal 4 - a Schiphol Group affiliate - at JFK International Airport in New York announced
JFK International Air Terminal (JFKIAT), the operator of Terminal 4 at JFK International Airport in New York, reached an agreement on key terms with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Delta Air Lines to expand and redevelop Terminal 4. JFKIAT’s managing member is Schiphol USA Inc., a U.S. affiliate of Royal Schiphol Group.
Royal Schiphol Group is delighted to contribute to the redevelopment of Terminal 4. It fits in our international strategy and ambition as it strengthens the financial position and expertise of the Group. The involvement at Terminal 4 brings benefits across the Group and in the Netherlands. Locally, this expansion brings significant operational benefits to Delta Air Lines and their SkyTeam partners including KLM.
The project is part of a complete transformation of JFK International Airport that was announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo of New York in 2017. Delta Airlines will consolidate all of its operations at JFK Airport to Terminal 4, thereby allowing Delta and (SkyTeam) partners to offer connecting customers a seamless travel experience.
As part of the project, 16 domestic narrow-body gates will be added by extending Concourse A, the existing terminal will receive a state-of-the-art renovation, and the road frontage will be redesigned and improved. The 16-gate expansion will replace the 10 gates currently used by Delta at Terminal 2.
JFK International Air Terminal, LLC. (JFKIAT) is the operator of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, one of the most active air terminals in the New York area, serving 33 international and domestic airlines with an annual passenger volume of more than 21 million travelers in 2019.

The Terminal’s expansive Retail Lounge offers an unparalleled experience for travelers with a wide range of food and beverage and retail options, from chic to upscale and from convenience stores, to electronics, accessories and gifts.
