JetBlue and its development partners held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new $4.2-billion Terminal 6 at JFK International Airport

JetBlue Breaks Ground on $4.2B Terminal 6 at JFK Airport

New York City-based JetBlue, joined by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and other partners and leaders, held a groundbreaking ceremony for a $4.2-billion project to develop a new international Terminal 6 at JFK International Airport.  

The start of construction follows the financial close of the deal last November between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the JFK Millennium Partners consortium to build the 1.2-million-square-foot, terminal on the airport’s north side. The consortium includes JetBlue, Vantage Airport Group, American Triple I and RXR. 

The new terminal will be developed in two phases, with the first new gates opening in 2026 and completion slated for 2028. Terminal 6 will have capacity for 10 gates, including nine wide-body gates. 

“The team putting this project together is setting out to develop a terminal that New Yorkers, including our JetBlue crewmembers, can be proud of,” said JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes.
