WCN Editorial Team 4 Aug 2021 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and JFK Millennium Partners (JMP), a private consortium, have signed a revised agreement to construct a new $3.9bn international Terminal 6 at John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in New York City, New York, the US.

JMP consortium comprises JetBlue Airways, New York's Hometown Airline; American Triple I Partners; Vantage Airport Group; and RXR Realty.

The consortium will provide complete funding for the construction of the new 1.2 million ft2 terminal, which will be constructed on the former Terminal 6 site that was demolished in 2011.

The new Terminal 6 will connect to Terminal 5 and will be designed to feature ten new gates, check-in halls and arrival spaces.

It will also include over 100,000ft2 of commercial dining and retail amenities, lounges, and recreational spaces.

Work on the project will also include critical infrastructure improvements to the roadways at the airport, integrating latest technology advances in sustainability and security and to optimise traffic flow and transportation access.

Addition, the new terminal will include automated TSA security lanes, biometric-based access control systems, touchless passenger journey, digital passenger flow and queue management, advanced video search analytics, as well as flexible design to accommodate future technology and/or regulatory changes.

Construction work on the new terminal is planned to commence in mid-2022 with completion scheduled in 2025.

American Triple I CEO and chief information officer David Cibrian said” “The redevelopment of JFK comes at a critical time as we work to achieve economic recovery from the recent crisis.

“As a minority owned business, ATI understands the importance of this project to the local and diverse community.

“Governor Cuomo's and the Port Authority's requirement of 30% MWBE participation in all aspects of the project helped make it possible for ATI to be in this partnership.

“Requiring participation that is reflective of the community it serves has made New York the nation's gold standard for MWBE utilization, and other states have taken note.”
