NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – John F. Kennedy International Airport‘s Terminal 4 will soon undergo a nearly $4 billion makeover.
The project, approved at a Port Authority board meeting Thursday, will focus on a 500,000 square foot expansion terminal, set to cost $3.8 billion.
The renovation will also include upgrades designed to improve passengers’ experience, including new retail and food options and upgraded ticketing and gate areas.
Delta’s move to Terminal 4 is expected to be completed in 2023. That’s when the Port Authority plans on demolishing Terminal 2.
The project is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $13 billion effort to modernize JFK Airport.
