delta takeoffDelta Air Lines, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and JFK International Air Terminal LLC unveiled the next phase of a Terminal 4 expansion at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The $175 million project adds 11 gates and 75,000 square feet to Terminal 4's Concourse B and continues Delta's $1.2 billion investment to enhance and expand the terminal.

"The newest enhancements at Terminal 4 underscore the significant investment Delta is making in New York City's airports—nearly $2 billion over the last six years," said Ed Bastian, Delta's president. "Our customers and employees are benefitting from substantial enhancements to our JFK operations, and we thank our partners at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and JFKIAT for working with Delta to create a world-class facility that meets—and, we believe, exceeds—the expectations of today's modern travelers."

Through this latest investment, Delta is significantly enhancing the customer experience at Terminal 4 and Terminal 2 by relocating a majority of its Delta Connection flights at JFK from Terminal 2 to the expanded Concourse B in Terminal 4. This will streamline travel for those with connecting flights at JFK and enhance access to amenities at both terminals.

The new gates at Terminal 4 will feature enclosed jet bridges and offer customers proximity to a flagship Sky Club and chef-driven restaurants. The expansion also facilitates intra-terminal connections with the addition of a new JFK Jitney bus stop at the end of Concourse B in Terminal 4 near the new gates. This will complement the existing stops located by gate B18 at the base of Concourse B in Terminal 4 and by gate C60 at Terminal 2.

As a result of the expansion at Terminal 4, Delta customers at Terminal 2 will also enjoy an improved experience, as all Delta flights that will continue to operate there will use climate-controlled jet bridges. Customers will also have access to a renovated Sky Club, convenient iPad stations and a chef-driven food and beverage program featuring seven food and beverage concepts, fresh markets, coffee shops and concierge services. In Q2 2015, the Terminal 2 bus stop will be refreshed, with escalators and elevators installed.
