B6 JFK Terminal 5i?

Thu Sep 19, 2013 1:55 am

Hello Everybody!

Does anybody know what the basic plans are for the international concourse of terminal five that is being built for B6 at JFK? How many gates are planned for the new concourse and how many of those gates (if any) will be able to accommodate wide body aircraft should B6 decide to pursue them in the future. Also does anybody have any model images of what the new concourse will look like when it is finished? Thanks in advance for your input!

3 more gates

3 existing gates become swing gates to handle domestic or intl arrivals

Decent sized arrival facility for border patrol

Expandable further in future

Wide bodies are possible by blocking 2 gates

Quoting m11stephen (Reply 3):

It won't be spectacular. Just new, spacious, and modern. For their customers, it will move international arrivals from the overcrowded T4 to a JetBlue specific T5.

That alone is priceless for JetBlue. They really don't care about a 50 year old terminal "that needed air conditioner and heat on year round because we were afraid if we turned either off...it wouldn't come back on again" -David Neeleman.
