History of JFK Airport

John F. Kennedy Airport started under a different name in the earlier years. It started as Idlewild (IDL). This airfield was built after LaGuardia became too crowded in 1939. Final construction began in 1943 with limited territory. This was expanded during construction. The owner has since been Port Authority of New York to this day. The final opening of the airport was in 1948 and began with the name New York International Airport as its official name. The first flights were carried out directly in the same year. All international flights were moved from LaGuardia to this airport. Within a year there was already a significant expansion of the terminal from 80 to 215 square feet. The expansions continued in the following years, including a control tower and taxiways.

The final opening of the airport was in 1948 and began with the name New York International Airport as its official name. The first flights were carried out directly in the same year. All international flights were moved from LaGuardia to this airport. Within a year there was already a significant expansion of the terminal from 80 to 215 square feet. The expansions continued in the following years, including a control tower and taxiways.

In 1954 the airport, still popularly known as ‘Idlewild’, had the most international traffic in the world. This meant that additional terminals had to be built. An idea came up to give every major airline its own terminal, excluding a general and international terminal. The international terminal was first completed to welcome JFK arrivals in 1957. This terminal was later demolished in the 1990’s and replaced by the current terminal 4. Some airlines that got their own or combined terminal were United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Eastern Airlines, and American Airlines. All these terminals were eventually replaced to some current terminals at John F. Kennedy Airport.

The airport didn’t get its current name, John F. Kennedy International Airport, until 1963 after the assassination of the president. The airport continued to grow with more than 400,000 airline operations per year. It thus became the second-busiest airport in the US. In the years before 2003 there was a direct train connection. The AirTrain people mover system took over that year.

In recent decades there have not been many adjustments at the airport. However, international plane routes were busy with JFK airport arrivals from Europe with the Airbus A380 with Lufthansa, Air France and Singapore Airlines. Etihad and Emirates also flew this large type of aircraft to JFK airport.

Reconstructions for the airfield are planned. It doesn’t rank that high in the best airports in the world. The experience had to increase along with the amount of flights and passengers. There were plans to replace or renew terminals. The first renovations started in 2020 and it is expected to be completed in 2026.
