If you’ve been to the John F. Kennedy International Airport you will know it is one of US’s most busiest and crowded. You will also know what a pain it can be getting to and from the airport. Worry not though for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced a $10 billion plan to overhaul the airport. Among this is a plan to update and expand the terminals and improve road and rail access at JFK. Not just that, the airport will see bigger parking lots, more fine dining options, duty-free shopping and retail, and conference and meeting room facilities. Security is not far behind as technology, such as facial recognition and video tracking software, will also be incorporated as part of the development.
Here’s what Cuomo has to say ‘Our vision plan calls for the creation of a unified, interconnected airport that changes the passenger experience and makes the airport much easier to access and navigate. We are New York, and we remember the bravado that built this state in the first place, and that is the attitude that will take JFK and turn it into the 21st century airport that we deserve.’
