American Triple I and its consortium partners in JFK Millennium Partners (JMP) have announced financial close of the US$4.2 billion deal to develop new international Terminal 6 anchoring JFK International Airport’s north side. JMP is a private company composed of Vantage Airport Group, American Triple I, RXR, and JetBlue.
Approved in August 2021 by the Port Authority Board of Commissioners, the new Terminal 6 development will feature a 1.2 million square foot terminal, 10 new gates, and bright and airy check-in halls and arrival spaces designed to enhance the customer experience.
