We’re uniting much of the north side of JFK with an iconic architectural profile and modern amenities

In 2017, JetBlue—the operators of Terminal 5 at the JFK Airport in New York—selected Vantage Airport Group and RXR Realty to design a new terminal on the Terminal 6 site and replace the existing terminal on the Terminal 7 site. Our job? To design Terminals 6 and 7 and their associated airside and landside infrastructure in association with Corgan. Our scope includes architectural, civil, transportation, and other design services, and our ambition is to create an appropriately memorable welcoming experience to New York for international customers.

As part of the design, the terminal will include a new U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing facility and significant airside and landside expansions. The airside work will accommodate 12 wide-body contact gates (two of which will work with A380 aircraft, the world’s largest passenger airliner), and the landside expansion will include a multi-level roadway system with connections to the existing AirTrain.

With this new terminal in place, JetBlue will be able to better serve their travelers now and into the future. From the ground up, this terminal will be designed to provide flexibility in future terminal processing and support further expansions and emerging technologies.
