Background Information

Originally built over the marshy tidelands of a golf course, the initial plans called for a 1,000-acre airport, but by the end of construction it had grown to just under five times that size. Its first commercial flight was in 1948, and since then it has been at the forefront of aviation. In 1963, the airport was rededicated to John F. Kennedy, and the leading international gateway operates more than 80 airlines out of its gates. Its status as an international hub is so important, in fact, that it also houses a mile-long "international zone," which is run not by the U.S. government but by the United Nations.

JFK Airport operates six terminals altogether. Being the largest, most spacious terminal in the New York area, Terminal 4 is the major international gateway, and Terminal 5, a historic landmark for both its interior and exterior, has been rated the best terminal in the US. All terminals at the airport offer an outstanding selection of international restaurants and bars, high fashion boutiques and art galleries.
