The new redevelopment at JFK Airport will create thousands of new jobs for our region. Construction and operations will require numerous goods and services from local businesses. We want this economic activity to stay local, so we are asking businesses to come out and learn more about the new JFK.
For more information on this FREE event or to RSVP, please email our office a JFKREDEVELOPMENT@PANYNJ.GOV. Please note that space is limited.
John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is one of the busiest airports in the nation and is an indispensable part of global travel and the region’s economy. The airport handles nearly 62 million passengers a year, supports 280,000 jobs, and generates more than $51 billion in sales and $17.1 billion in wages. It is an essential component of the world’s air transportation system and a regional economic driver.
Vision For The Future
To accommodate the dramatic expected growth at JFK airport and to keep New York’s economy moving forward, Governor Cuomo’s Airport Advisory Panel developed a “Vision Plan” to transform JFK into a leading global airport.
The Vision Plan provides a strategic framework for the Port Authority and its partners to completely redevelop, modify and expand existing facilities and infrastructure. The aggressive, forward-facing master plan and the project, called the JFK Redevelopment Program, provides for staged redevelopment.
Once completed, the transformed JFK will provide an outstanding world-class experience to customers, optimized land and airspace use, expanded economic opportunities for the Borough of Queens and the region, and continued economic development for our neighbors through job creation, and environmental stewardship of local wildlife and preservation of recreation.
