JetBlue on Tuesday broke ground on an extension to its facilities at John F. Kennedy's Terminal 5 to create an international arrivals hall.
Set to open in early 2015, the space includes six international arrivals gates - three new and three converted from Terminal 5 - and an International Arrivals Hall with full U.S. Custom and Federal Inspection Services (FIS).
Some highlights of the international arrivals terminal extension include:
An overall constructed area of 150,000 square feet;
Two additional baggage claim belts and a U.S. Custom and Border Protection, Federal Inspection Service (FIS) facility designed to accommodate up to 1,200 customers per hour; and
Circulation paths designed to move customers through gates and Customs in the most efficient way possible with walking time and travel minimized.
