The redevelopment and expansion of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) will include two major phases, span multiple years, and cost an estimated $1.4 billion. The massive project will transition the facility from a fully common-use terminal to a common-use terminal with Delta Air Lines as its anchor airline tenant.

The $1.2 billion Phase 1 of the project, which was nearing completion in April, expands the terminal from 1.5 million to 2 million square feet, creates a centralized security checkpoint, reorganizes concessions post-security, and adds nine wide-body gates, a new inline baggage system, indoor taxi dispatching area, and baggage claim carousels. Phase 1 will also include the demolition of Terminal 3, Delta's previous home. Phase 2 will follow soon, adding 11 regional jet gates and 75,000 more square feet in Concourse B.
