Construction May Make Getting to JFK Airport a Nightmare for 3 Years: What to Know

By andrew siff • published april 25, 2023 • updated on april 26, 2023 at 7:05 am.

Good news: There are plans to get the makeover at JFK Airport back on track and completed in a timely manner.

Bad news: It will make getting to the airport a bit of a nightmare for at least the next three years, as much of it will be a construction site.

Port Authority officials are warning travelers to be prepared for gridlock near the airport, as the $19 billion renovation project picks up steam — promising a transformation decades in the making at the tri-state's busiest international airport.

JFK Airport's New Terminal 1 Breaks Ground Following Years-Long Pause on Project

Get Tri-state area news and weather forecasts to your inbox. Sign up for NBC New York newsletters.

"This is a massive undertaking," said Rick Cotton, the executive director at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The new details were outlined Monday. They include:

  • $9.5 billion for Terminal 1, which will be the most extensive part of the project, as it becomes a the new international terminal.
  • $1.5 billion Terminal 4 for Delta, which is already done.
  • $4.2 billion for Terminal 6, with investors like JetBlue.
  • $425 million Terminal 8 for American Airlines, which is now finished.

Phase one is expected to be completed in 2026. Construction is already underway, but will get started in earnest on May 1.

When they begin, executives are hoping to avoid a repeat of what happened at LaGuardia Airport not long ago. It was just five years ago that passengers could sometimes be seen walking next to the car traffic on the Grand Central Parkway to beat the LaGuardia gridlock.

"We don’t expect things to get that bad. We expect we have learned our lesson," said Cotton.

In an effort to ensure the same conditions don't spring up at, Port Authority has opened an airport operations center at JFK Airport, where traffic engineers can monitor conditions around the clock.

"We might proactively mitigate and push all the traffic down from the departures to the arrivals level," said JFK Redevelopment Manager Jessica Forse.

There may be other challenges as well. The Air Train won’t stop at Terminal 1 for the next seven months, so workers can build a steel frame over it. A taxi stand at Terminal 5 will also be moved, creating a 10-minute walk for a cab.

Forse doesn't believe the changes will create too many headaches for travelers.

"I don’t think so. Passengers will walk up that bridge and they’re in and out of the airport," she said.

The goal of course is eventually that passengers deliver rave reviews — something that was once unimaginable but now happens at the other Queens airport, after the $8 billion renovation did the trick. 

Airport executives seem confident a modernization twice that size will work similar wonders at JFK Airport.  But New Yorkers might need double the patience to endure it until then.

MyFlight Forecast™ gives you, the passenger, and access to Flying Weather Forecast data that pilots will review prior to every flight. While a pilot will review much more data, data that they've spent years learning to interpret, this site breaks down the most relevant data for the passenger to determine flight conditions, potential flight and airport delays, and most importantly, flight turbulence forecast.

Weather Radar

Reference Weather Radar to determine the location of precipitation (Snow, Rain) and where it is located relative to your flight path. Pilot Tip - Just because you see areas of precipitation, does not mean that you will necesarily be flying through it! You might be miles above it!

Satellite Imagery

Reference the Satellite page to locate clouds, or areas of decreased visibility. While clouds can generally increase the likelihood of turbulence while flying through them, keep in mind, clouds are just moisture, or water. Water is generally not that scary. Not all clouds that appear on the satellite imagery can guarantee areas of turbulence, it greatly depends on the stability of the atmosphere.

Balloons over JFK airport being investigated by FBI amid anti-Israel protests

“If anyone is flying out of JFK Airport today, please plan to travel to the airport ahead of time. There are planned protests today and will cause delays,” Philip Rivera, the NYPD chief of transportation,   wrote   around 1 p.m. on Jan. 1. “We don’t want anyone to miss their flights! Safe travels and Happy New Year.”

The post received angry responses demanding that the police do its job and remove the protesters. Many asked if the protesters had obtained a permit for the disruption, which ended up   delaying   60 flights at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, N.Y.

“If the protesters can plan, so can the people who are paid to keep transportation arteries open,” wrote   Matt Welch , editor at large at   Reason   magazine.

  • U.S. confirms downed large airborne object that passed over Canada was Chinese spy balloon

Melissa Weiss, executive editor of   Jewish Insider   who lives in Israel,   wrote : “Ironic that the people who tell me to ‘go back to Brooklyn’ are the ones making it impossible to get there.”

Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. secretary of transportation who has often   commented   on airline delays, did not post about the anti-Israel protesters delaying air travel.

The “Flood JFK for Gaza” protest—using the same language, “flood,” as Hamas did on Oct. 7—was organized by Within Our Lifetime and included the chant, “NYPD, KKK, IDF you’re all the same” and a sign “Israel has waged a war on the children in Palestine.”

Some of the flight delays were due to crews being unable to arrive on time because of the disruption.

Video footage showed   balloons   floating above the airport, which is a potential federal crime. A source in law enforcement confirmed the balloons to the   New York Post .

“The FBI is investigating who let the balloons go because they could cause a threat to aviation safety, the source said,” it reported. “It’s unclear if balloons were related to the protest. The Port Authority said it had no information on any balloons and Port Authority police made no arrests.”

“Victory! Port Authority has effectively shut down all entrances to JFK for people without a boarding pass. Airtrain service is closed, and cars cannot get into the terminal without proof of ticket,” Within Our Lifetime   posted . “Airport is swarming with law enforcement and organizers were removed from Terminal 4.”

“We are calling on everyone without a car to meet us at the offices of El Al, the Zionist entity’s largest airline, for a protest at 100 Wall Street in Manhattan,” the group added, before announcing a “car caravan” to   LaGuardia   Airport, also in Queens.

These were the most on-time airlines last year

The 2023 rankings are in from the airline schedule data firm oag.

If you flew Delta Air Lines last year, there’s a good chance your flight was on time. The carrier was the most punctual in the United States, according to new rankings from airline schedule data firm OAG. By this measure, 83.2 percent of Delta’s 1.6 million global flights arrived without a hitch.

And the airport with the most punctual flights? Few will be surprised that it was Minneapolis-St. Paul, a large Delta hub, where about 82.6 percent of flights left on schedule, despite its snow-packed location.

An on-time flight is defined as one that arrives within 15 minutes of its scheduled arrival. Airlines supplied OAG with the data for its rankings, which include only carriers that provide information on at least 80 percent of their flights.

The on-time performance came during a challenging year for airlines. It kicked off with the outage of a key Federal Aviation Administration notification system in January that prompted the first nationwide halt in air traffic since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. A national air traffic controller shortage forced airlines to prune schedules. And severe weather disrupted flights in New York and elsewhere over the summer.

What airlines did right in 2023

“Strong on-time performance results from Delta, American, United, and others point to a collective effort by the industry to overcome challenges,” OAG’s chief analyst, John Grant, said in a news release. He cited the operational issues airlines faced, as well as industry-wide maintenance and supply chain challenges.

After Delta, Alaska Airlines was the second most punctual among domestic carriers — and seventh worldwide — with 81 percent of flights arriving on time, OAG’s data shows. American Airlines flights were 79 percent on time, United Airlines nearly 79 percent and Southwest nearly 76 percent. Spirit Airlines and JetBlue Airways rounded out the list of U.S. airlines in OAG’s rankings, with 69.5 percent and 68.3 percent of flights, respectively, arriving on schedule.

Most U.S. airlines were more punctual last year than in 2022. Delta, Alaska and American improved by roughly two percentage points, while United performed about the same. Even laggard JetBlue improved by about four points.

Delta executives throughout the year praised the airline’s staff for its reliable operation. “Our people consistently deliver operational excellence with the relentless focus on raising the bar at every stage of the travel journey,” CEO Ed Bastian said earlier this month. The secret to on-time flights, however, runs deeper.

“The way you keep an airline on time is you schedule flights for a realistic amount of time, and have enough time on the ground between flights ,” said Atmosphere Research Group travel analyst Henry Harteveldt. Delta, he continued, does both, scheduling flights for an appropriate duration, then providing enough time on the ground for staff to fully prepare planes for the next flight.

It helps that Delta’s busiest airports are Atlanta, Detroit and Minneapolis-St. Paul, none of which faces the same level of congestion in the air or on the tarmac that plagues many airports in the northeast and Florida.

What hurt airline reliability last year

Most flight delays in 2023 were airlines’ fault, according to the Transportation Department — due to aircraft maintenance or a late crew, for example.

When a delay is the airline’s fault, it is responsible for accommodating travelers on another flight and, in some cases, offering meal or hotel vouchers, or even a refund. The DOT has a dashboard of travelers’ rights when airlines are responsible for the delay or cancellation.

But the shortage of air traffic controllers , coupled with severe weather last summer, played a significant role in punctuality in 2023.

In March, the FAA said national air traffic controller staffing was at 81 percent of target levels and, in the center that manages flights in and around New York City, at only 54 percent. As a result, it allowed airlines to cut flights by 10 percent at New York’s three main airports — John F. Kennedy International, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty — over the summer to minimize disruptions. Still, JetBlue faced 68 days of “significant operational disruption” in New York during the three months ending in September, airline President Joanna Geraghty said in an earnings call.

“Far worse September weather” and “unprecedented [air traffic control] restrictions” caused the disruptions, Geraghty said. Add to that the fact that a greater percentage of JetBlue’s flights than any other airline is in congested New York airspace, and the delays multiplied.

“If you are always driving on a congested highway, you are more prone to adverse conditions that might affect performance,” said Ahmed Abdelghany, associate dean in the David B. O’Maley College of Business at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida. This means airlines flying in congested areas — like JetBlue in the northeast — are more susceptible to flight delays and cancellations.

Airports are all about capacity

Airport on-time rankings are largely outside of their direct control. Ones with plenty of capacity — runways, gates and other facilities to accommodate their full allotment of scheduled flights — are less likely to see delays than congested airports that operate near or at capacity, Abdelghany said.

Lack of congestion in the skies above is also important. For example, in New York, the FAA has very specific — and separate — routes for flights into and out of JFK, LaGuardia and Newark. If a direction is blocked by storms, one airport can see flight delays and cancellations spike while another continues to operate smoothly.

Then there is the simple fact that if an airport’s main airline is reliable, that airport probably is, too. The three airports with the most on-time departures in the United States last year — Minneapolis-St. Paul, Seattle-Tacoma and Atlanta — are all Delta hubs. Charlotte and Reagan National Airport rounded out the Top 5.

How we travel now: More people are taking booze-free trips — and airlines and hotels are taking note. Some couples are ditching the traditional honeymoon for a “buddymoon” with their pals. Interested? Here are the best tools for making a group trip work.

Bad behavior: Entitled tourists are running amok, defacing the Colosseum , getting rowdy in Bali and messing with wild animals in national parks. Some destinations are fighting back with public awareness campaigns — or just by telling out-of-control visitors to stay away .

Safety concerns: A door blew off an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 Max 9 jet, leaving passengers traumatized — but without serious injuries. The ordeal led to widespread flight cancellations after the jet was grounded, and some travelers have taken steps to avoid the plane in the future. The incident has also sparked a fresh discussion about whether it’s safe to fly with a baby on your lap .

Boeing Co  said on Sunday it will have to do more work on about 50 undelivered 737 Max airplanes, potentially delaying near-term deliveries, after its supplier Spirit AeroSystems  discovered two mis-drilled holes on some fuselages.

Boeing confirmed the findings in response to a Reuters query after industry sources said a spacing problem had been discovered in holes drilled on a window frame, but the jetmaker said safety was unaffected and existing 737s could keep flying.

"This past Thursday, a supplier notified us of a non-conformance in some 737 fuselages. I want to thank an employee at the supplier who flagged to his manager that two holes may not have been drilled exactly to our requirements," Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Stan Deal said in a letter to staff.

"While this potential condition is not an immediate flight safety issue and all 737s can continue operating safely, we currently believe we will have to perform rework on about 50 undelivered airplanes," Deal said.

The checks focus on potentially incorrect positioning of two holes on a window frame assembly supplied by Spirit, a condition known as "short edge margin," the sources said.

As of Friday, the "non-conformance" or quality defect had been found in 22 fuselages - nearly half of the 47 inspected up that point in production systems spread between Boeing and Spirit - and may exist in some 737s in service, they added.

The figures Deal supplied to employees on Sunday suggest that the inspections proceeded rapidly and that the problem affects a minority of the hundreds of fuselages in the pipeline.

"As part of our 360-degree quality management program, a member of our team identified an issue that does not conform to engineering standards," a Spirit AeroSystems spokesperson said.

The findings came to light in a routine notification known as a Notice of Escapement, in which suppliers notify Boeing of any known or suspected quality slip, the sources said.

Such quality reports are common in aerospace but the discovery comes as Boeing and its best-selling jet face intense scrutiny after the mid-air blowout of a door plug on an Alaska Airlines jet on Jan 5.

HOUSTON — Traffic flow headed to Bush Intercontinental Airport terminals returned to normal Saturday afternoon after a protest on JFK Boulevard.

Cars covered with flags and messages for Palestine slowed down traffic at about 2 p.m. Saturday. Travelers were encouraged to use Will Clayton Parkway as an alternate route.

The Houston Police Department was on-site to monitor the protest. A KHOU 11 photographer who was on scene saw police handing out tickets to people blocking traffic.
