Cuomo Announces Major Redevelopment of JFK Terminal


Terminal 4 at JFK Airport is set to undergo a major redevelopment.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the upgrade, which will add 16 new gates and expand the check-in and arrival areas. There will also be new retail and food options, upgraded ticketing, improved technology and new self-service bag check.

"When completed, our $13 billion project to modernize JFK will create a more unified airport and solidify New York's position as the premier entry point to our country," Governor Cuomo said in a statement.

The Port Authority board is expected to approve the plan this week.
