Design-Build Project Delivery Team 
The $3.9 billion, 1.2 million SF new Terminal 6 managed by JFK Millennium Partners (JMP) is set to transform the JetBlue customer experience and deliver sustainable technologies. AECOM Hunt was selected as the design-build team to provide the planning, design, and construction services for the program. As a subconsultant to AECOM Hunt, Group PMX provides control document control services for the program.

The new terminal will be built on the sites of the former Terminal 6, which was demolished in 2011, and the aging Terminal 7, which will be torn down after British Airways relocates to Terminal 8.  The new Terminal 6 will connect to Terminal 5 and have the capacity for ten new gates, as well as bright and airy check-in halls and arrival spaces designed to enhance the customer experience. The passenger facilities at the new terminal will feature significantly larger waiting areas with high ceilings, natural light and modern architecture, interior green space, exhibits, and art featuring iconic New York landmarks and local artists. World-class retail, restaurants, and bars will include locally-based restaurateurs, craft beverage options, and Taste NY stores.

Transforming the Terminal with Cutting-edge Tech
State-of-the-art technology will further improve the customer experience and security in the new terminal and will include elements such as touchless passenger journey, digital passenger flow, and queue management, automated TSA security lanes, advanced video search analytics, biometric-based access control systems, and a flexible design to accommodate future technology and/or regulatory changes.

Sustainability enhancements will include various carbon emissions reductions through the use of renewable energy technologies such as a solar hot water system, aircraft de-icing and fluid recovery, and electric ground service equipment supporting the transition of its ground service fleet – such as baggage tractors and belt loaders – to electric power.
