JFK International Arrivals Terminal

Fluor was the program manager for the $1.4-billion International Arrivals Terminal (IAT) and associated facilities at the John F. Kennedy International Airport. The client was JFK IAT LLC, a New York limited liability company composed of Schiphol USA, LCOR, and Lehman Brothers. JFK IAT entered into a 25-year master lease agreement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) to redevelop and operate the IAT.

Fluor was selected by JFK IAT to perform overall management of the planning, design, procurement, construction, and commissioning efforts, as well as coordination with PANYNJ and the air carriers.

The old terminal was demolished and a three-level terminal with a two-level, two-wing concourse and 16 contact gates was constructed. The minimum of 10 fully operational contact gates was maintained 24 hours a day to meet the needs of the 40 airlines and several thousand passengers arriving hourly. The capacity of the terminal is 3,200 passengers per hour for arrivals and 2,600 passengers per hour for departures.

The new terminal was built in phases—over, around, and through the existing facility—to shorten the schedule. This was accomplished while meeting FAA security requirements, accommodating airline flight schedules, minimizing passenger inconvenience, and maintaining the project construction schedule.

Public access roadways were also improved, including a new two level departures and arrivals roadway, auxiliary roads, and parking areas.
