New York JFK Int'l Airport: 24 hour operations; USD1.3 billion in infrastructure investment to 2018

New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport has been one of the world’s leading international airports for many decades.

JFK International is the major international gateway serving the city of New York and the greater tri-state metropolitan region – one of the world's most populous areas with a far flung urban population in the order of 23 million inhabitants, and a key financial centre.

Known more as an origin and destination (O&D) facility than as a hub (Newark Airport in New Jersey undertakes that role while La Guardia Airport is oriented towards domestic traffic) JFK is among the busiest airports in the United States but only the 17th busiest globally in 2014. Apart from services by JetBlue, Virgin America and the regional subsidiaries of the US majors, destinations served from JFK are almost exclusively intercontinental, with many major commercial centres across South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East served directly from JFK.

This report looks at present and future growth trends at JFK, local airport statistics, how it matches up to competition across a range of metrics, at construction activities and at its ownership.
