More One Demolition For The New York History

JetBlue Signs Lease for a New Terminal

Now the lease agreement between B6 and Port Authority is signed the sad future of the Eero Saarinen Terminal is guaranteed.  worried 
Sooner, we will see its concourses ‘747 Gates’ and ‘Rotunga’ being demolished to give place for a superfluous new terminal.  weeping 
As it is common ground, JFK does not enable enough runways and slots for justify the construction of larger terminals. Furthermore, the JFK neighborhood would be discontented with the idea of bringing more flights.
It is unbelievable, but there is no objective reason for a new T5 be constructed in JFK.

The Saarinen Terminal is protected as a historical landmark and jetBlue's plans for the terminal must, and do, keep with Saarinen's intent. The terminal won't be demolished, merely added on to to make it easier to facilitate a higher amount of traffic

Questions for you:

Who are you saying would be "discontented"?

What "JFK neighborhood" are you referring to?

Why should there be a "objective" reason for anything new at JFK?

FYI- The old terminal has been an eyesore for years, anything added to or taken away from it would be more than welcome!

I think that T5 at JFK has had great history at JFK, but the fact is that the airport is changing and has been for a long time. The IAB was also a huge staple in its history, but that had to give way to the fact that the airport and that terminal needed a new structure to support all those airlines.

Its sad to see T5 go, but the landmark will not be destroyed.
The tubes and rotundas definetly hold history, but once again, the airport has got to change. T5 and T6 are old and they look worn down. A new terminal will bring a much better image to the airport.

I think 4 runways and the general area (size wise) of the airport fit quite well with the amount of traffic for one of the world's busiest airports. Ive been through JFKs phases for 20 years of being here, and i think that it deals pretty well with the amount of flights that it handles. Why would a larger terminal not be a good idea for JFK??

I will lay out the objective facts:

1. T5 has not been operational since TWA ceased existance in 2000.
2. T5 as it exists now is not usuable as a terminal given current requirements. In its later years in use it was certainly marginal.
3. T6 cannot be expanded or upgraded any further. The current B6 operation pushes it to the max.
4. JFK is the only PANYNJ airport that has room to expand or add flights.
5. The T5/T6 replacement terminal has been in the planning stage for ~5 years now. Certainly any needed studies that were required have been done, and the feasibility of the new facility has been proven. The new terminal is part of a larger renewal of the passengar facilities at JFK. Most of which were well over 40 years old and in need of major upgrades and/or replacements. Thus far T1, T4, and T8/9 have seen replacement in whole or part. T7 has seen a major refurbishment.
6. JFK has existed as a major airport for longer than most of the surrounding neighborhoods in Queens have existed. Furthermore existing flight paths already do a decent job of reducing the noise and pollution impact.

Can't the same be said for anyone living near any airport? I mean, look at the LGB NIMBYs, for example.

I moved to South Ozone Park, Queens knowing full well I live right underneath short final for 13L. It becomes a part of your life, and the rotate what runways they use for arrivals so the 13's aren't always being used.

As Kahala put it, JetBlue is almost maxed out at T6. T5 will bring a substantial amount of business to JFK and the community. The Saarnen building will remain, be renovated, and used once again. If anything, it'll be revived as the landmark and icon of JFK. I cannot wait to see it operational again.

As an-ex TWA employee myself, I am more than happy to see T5 redone and rehabilitated for Jetblue's operations.
Most of us have seen this terminal deteriorate so much that it really did hurt to take a look at it.

I've seen drawings in magazines of the new T5 after it is enhanced and expanded, and it looks fabulous! Now if only TWA was still here to use it....

What a BS post! JFK is the ONLY NYC area airport that has excess capacity. While there are slots in effect from 4-7 pm and it is crowded during the intl push, the rest of the day u could hold a track meet on the runways. JFK has the potential to handle 50+million passengers a year . . . and will.

The new terminal respects the landmark status of the old structure, incorporates the old structure, and gives JFK premier-hub airline, a hub terminal.

It's no different then T5 and LHR, is it??

Let me answer one by one of those objective facts you mentioned:  scratchchin 

1. T5 has not been operational since the end of 2001.
2. T5 as it exists now is not usable as a terminal for a very high passenger flow, if you consider current security requirements.
3. B6 does not need to centralize its operations in JFK and the T5 space supplies the B6 exceeding demand.
4. NYC airports do not have room for so many additions of flights, expansion will have to rely on wide-bodies. Look at London, which is served by 5 airport at least and two of them (LHR and LGW) are mostly operated with wide-bodies.
5. The plans for the replacement of any JFK terminal are very changeable and T5 have had other projects different of current B6`s. A very feasible project is the one that transforms the Eero Saarinen building into a baggage claim building and creates a new check-in building in front of the former, following a similar concept of T6. By this project the current whole T5 is maintained and used.
6. The quality of the lives that are in the surrounding areas of JFK is more important than an airport.

Nothing from Terminal 5 will be demolished; everything is being integrated into the new terminal, as pointed out in some posts above. In fact, most objects will most likely serve as a museum/lounge area.

JFK has 4 runways, which gives them an exceptional amount of flexibility (ATL has 4 runways and they're the busiest airport in the world!). Additionally, there are no slots except for 4-7pm, in which JetBlue doesn't operate many flights anyway (most West Coast night flights leave right after that). There is certainly space for an enlarged terminal as JFK takes up an amazing amount of space.

I, or most people on the board for that matter, have never heard of bitching residents. I don't know if you've ever been to JFK but most of the flight paths take you over the water, not the land until very short finals. Nevertheless, Idlewild has been an active, 24-hour airport for a very long time and any "uprisings" from surrounding neighborhoods would be amazingly ineffective.

In conclusion, there is an "objective" reason for the new Terminal 5 to be built. JetBlue has outgrown their current terminal and by doubling operations the state of New York and the tri-state area will profit handsomely. The city is locking in a long-term relationship with one of the most innovative airlines in the industry; what more could they possibly want?

I am 100% certain it is. Out of the 7 slot controlled commercial airports in the US. JFK has a short window of slotted hours at only 1500-1959. However slots apply to both departures and arrivals. Part of what made B6 so successful was their ability so secure a large amount of slot exemptions for JFK operations. Without these exemptions there schedule would have a hole in it late in the afternoon.

1. T5 has not been operational since the end of 2001.

Not to sound like a know-it-all, but T5's last day of operation was on or about October 8, 2001. I flew in for the day just for the occasion. Beautiful place indeed.  Smile

superfluous new terminal.

???? Last time I was at JFK the terminals were so overcrowded I couldn't call any terminal expansion "not needed" or superfluous.  Smile

Quoting AwysBSB (Thread starter):
It is unbelievable, but there is no objective reason for a new T5 be constructed in JFK.

As other's noted, Jetblue. We believe in competition, so let's have some at JFK.

No worries, I think we could all understand you. If clarification is required, we'll ask.

As an-ex TWA employee myself, I am more than happy to see T5 redone and rehabilitated for Jetblue's operations.
Most of us have seen this terminal deteriorate so much that it really did hurt to take a look at it.

I would agree, what architect wants a building to go idle? Incorporating the existing landmark into a new terminal is a tribute to the ol' building.

OK. This is one subject I feel very qualified to comment on. I grew up in Gibson, Valley Stream, 6 miles from JFK. As a kid I was there just about every weekend and could identify an airline by the time I was 6 - of course it was easy considering they were about 2 - 3,000 feet flying over our house.

Anyway, all this strum/drama around T5 is a joke. Yes, it's a landmark and isn't going anywhere for starters (Thank You NYC Council Members). As to the noise argument, that's a joke. I grew up with 707's, 727's then 747's, D10's, L1011's, you get my drift. The noise abatement laws were not in effective, nor were the smoke laws. I remember eating 707 fumes in my bedroom on low ceiling nights (loved it!)... anyway, JFK will do very well with an enhanced T5 and refurbished T6, if that's the plan. Jet Blue deserves a great hub for the service they've done for JFK and the NYC area.

My parents still live in their house and the noise is like nothing compared to the past. And will continue to only get quieter, no matter how many flights there are.

I have to agree, Blackhawk. If Kahala's internet persona carries over to his customer service... let's hope not, for the sake of reputable travel industry employees everywhere.

AwysBsB ......... your English is fine, and in my opinion anyone here can dispute your beliefs and statements as we are all free to do ...... but they shouldn't comment on your language skills. English is obviously at least your second language and that is probably a damn site better than the abilities of those who bash your efforts. My French and my Dutch are OK verbally but my writing skills in these languages leaves a lot to be desired. I wouldn't even want to try ...... but you have ..... and you deserve credit for doing so.

Keep posting my friend
BA all the way !!!

The comment about B6 being the only one interested in the terminal is true because they are the only reason for the terminals construction. The terminal will be, in its entirety, run by jetblue with roughly 250 flights a day. There is no need for anyone else to be there. The entire T5 area has a huge amount of unutilized land which is getting put to good use.

As stated before AC MFR have been put under more pressure to make quieter planes. The noise level does not compare to 20 years ago.

JFK is currently undergoing alot of construction which does not help in delays. One of the two taxiway bridges is being rebuilt , runway holdpoint extended, entrances to T5 rebuilt and a few things over by American which im not sure of.

Just remmber jetblue brought over what southwest has been providing everyone else for years and the consumers reactions so far are that they want more. And they are getting just that.

Oh, just AN ENTIRELY NEW TERMINAL!!!  biggrin 

BTW, does anyone know what they decided to do with T5 with regard to the connectors? Will they actually go to the gates (i.e. have a view from the old T5 to the ramp) or just to the terminal (with a roadway between the two)? I haven't seen many renderings of the new terminal.

Good morning everyone!
The conclusion I am getting with this thread, and other threads of A.net, is that JFK should be among other airports to be under the UNESCO trust. Of course, the whole airport would not be under that protection, but terminals like Eero Saarinen and Worldport would have several limitations of refurbishment.
I think that if Port Authority had its job limited by UNESCO they would be planning more feasible changes to some of the areas they control.

I'm 100% sure that JFK is not slot-controlled. I'll go look for a link

New York area airports have a history of severe congestion. In 1968, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) adopted the High Density Rule (HDR or the Slot Rule)[1] as a temporary measure to deal with the problem of congestion and delays at LGA, JFK, Newark, Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Reagan National (DCA) airports. FAA stated that the rule would expire at the end of 1969 but then extended it to October 25, 1970. In 1973, it was extended indefinitely. Newark was exempted from the rule in the early 1970s

Once JetBlue Moves over to the new T5 what will happen to T6 ?

I am really excited about this new terminal, once this is open it will leave the Delta disaster as the only embarrassment at JFK.

This airport has come a long way in 10 years, Brand new Terminals 1,4,5 (soon) and 8. The AirTrain, new parking garages, new Tower.

Finely New York will have an airport to be proud of !!

From what I was told T6 will be kept also.... Possibly renovated completely while things go full swing at T5?...

"Oh, just AN ENTIRELY NEW TERMINAL!!!"... yes i know that Mir lol. Thats kind of obvious ( nice terminal I might add though.) What I was refering to is the adjustment of the taxiways and such around the terminal.
