"JFK" Airport: British Airways and American Airlines will invest 344 million dollars

Funds that will serve to have a fully dedicated terminal

It seems that American Airlines, British Airways and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have reached an agreement regarding the financing of 344 million dollars for the works of expansion and modernization of the "John F. Kennedy" International Airport. An agreement announced by the executive director of the Authority Rick Cotton speaking on the sidelines of a transport event carried out this morning in Manhattan, which will be formalized in the next few days and which will allow adding more boarding gates to Terminal 8, freeing up spaces at the Terminal 7 where the British air carrier will transfer its hub. Work that will start next year and which will cost a total of $ 13 billion -12 billion come from private investors and 1 billion from the Port Authority- and that will increase the capacity of the "JFK", in anticipation of the increase in demand for air connections they should almost double over the next 20 years. New terminals and the modernization of existing ones will ensure that there are two large airports located at the northern and southern extremities where the main airlines operating on intercontinental routes will have their bases.

Expansion of the structures of the "JFK" airport in New York, the managing authority that manages it also plans 8 billion jobs on the "La Guardia" -which will be completely modernized- and on that of Newark, for a total of 28 billion dollars invested most by individuals, or airlines operating on those airports.
