John Arancio has been named Deputy General Manager at John F. Kennedy International Airport. John will fill this critical role and assist me in my new role as General Manager. John has been an essential asset since he came to fill the JFK Airport Operations Manager position three years ago.
John joined the Port Authority in May 2015 and brings 38 years of career experience in flight operations and airport management. In addition to his tenure at JFK, he has held several key positions at LaGuardia Airport including Manager of Aeronautical Services, Acting Manager of Airport Operations, Acting Manager of Airport Security, and Manager of Airport Certification and Safety.
John’s previous experience includes serving as an Assistant Airport Manager at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, as well as his military service as an Air Force pilot and commercial pilot with both TWA and Northwest Airlines. John holds an Accredited Airport Executive (AAE) credential from the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and a Project Management Professional Certification (PMP) from the Project Management Institute (PMI).
John is a trusted and loyal JFK employee and his institutional knowledge of the workings of JFK will be of immense help as we navigate JFK redevelopment.
