Delta Air Lines is offering a first glimpse into the US$1.2 billion expansion of Terminal 4 at New York’s JFK airport.
The carrier has released a video rendering of the experience passengers can expect when it begins operating flights out of the newly refurbished terminal in May 2013.
Terminal 4 is slated to become one of the largest terminals in North America and Delta is promising its passengers a “spectacular state-of-the-art hub.”
The airline says the revamped, expanded Terminal 4 will feature covered check-in areas at the curbside, nine new international gates, more space at check-in, extra security lanes and more shopping and dining options.
Passengers will have access to power and USB ports in the terminal, while a new Delta Sky Club will offer members amenities including a full-service bar with complimentary drinks and snacks, free wi-fi, and showers.
Delta currently serves most domestic flights out of JFK’s Terminal 2 and the majority of international services from Terminal 3.
Delta will switch from Terminal 3 over to Terminal 4 when renovation work finishes in just under two years time.
Terminal 3 will then be demolished and the space used for aircraft parking.
Delta currently handles more than 11 million passengers through JFK every year.
