JetBlue’s Terminal 5 at JFK

JetBlue Airways announced the opening of its new international arrivals hall extension at Terminal 5 of New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Wednesday.

The 175,000-square-foot (16,259-square-meter) T5 International, or T5i, has six international arrivals gates, including three new gates and three that were converted from the airport’s Terminal 5, as well as an International Arrivals Hall with full Federal Inspection Services.  T5i also houses 40 automated passport control kiosks (APCs), as well as 10 Global Entry kiosks, and can accommodate up to 1,400 passengers per hour.

The terminal is lighted by natural daylight, and has six new restaurants and food options, as well as two additional baggage claim belts.  In addition, an education-focused children’s area is scheduled to open later this year.

The terminal will handle all of JetBlue’s daily international flights at the airport, which can be as many 39.
