JetBlue Airways Corporation
New Construction, Site Work
640,000 sq. ft.
The JetBlue Terminal 5 project at John F. Kennedy Airport is a 640,000 sq. ft., 26-gate terminal addition that incorporates the landmark TWA terminal, designed by Eero Saarinen in 1962. This project more than doubles the airline's JFK capacity to 250 daily flights with a capacity for 20,000,000 customers per year. The Terminal has ten-line explosion detection machines, a 20-lane TSA security check area, a baggage conveyor system, and a large expanse of ticket halls, marketplaces, and baggage halls. The plan also included a connecting bridge to the AirTrain station, a parking garage with 1,500 spaces, and the connecting tubes to Terminal 5, where JetBlue provides electronic ticket kiosks for passengers who want to walk-through the historic structure.
Turner was responsible for the Terminal structure and the civil works, including all arrival and departure roadways, storm drainage and retention systems, airside apron demolition and installation, site utility installation and relocation, and hydrant fuel and valve systems. This is a post-9/11 design that not only accommodates the latest security requirements but also creates an enjoyable and humane experience for passengers. Also included is a 70-acre tract to accommodate additional planes, increasing service into and out of New York. Turner completed all construction without disrupting the airline’s daily operations.
