TWA Terminal Update

Back in March of this year, we reported that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) had announced that the former TWA Terminal at Kennedy Airport would reopen this fall, allowing JetBlue passengers to pass through the landmark structure on their way to the new JetBlue Airlines terminal that is also due to open shortly. But, while the latter will open ahead of schedule next month, the reopening of the former has now been delayed at least until mid-2009.

Currently, the TWA Terminal is undergoing internal asbestos abatement and restoration to its exterior. Interior restoration will begin shortly, and it is hoped that passengers will be able to pass though the historic terminal by June and the iconic central space will be fully open by August.

In the meantime, JetBlue passengers can be dropped-off by buses and taxis directly at the new terminal, and those arriving by AirTrain can access it via the new elevated AirTrain connector.
