Strong bonds between New York and Amsterdam
JFK Terminal 4 is one of North America's largest airport terminals with its annual passenger volume expected to reach 15 million in 2014. The new terminal extension includes seven renovated wide-body gates, expanded check-in areas, a centralised passenger security checkpoint, and a baggage screening and sorting system. It is used by Delta Airlines, KLM, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin America.
In a press statement Mr. Nijhuis commented: “This expanded terminal further consolidates the connection between our Amsterdam and New York hubs, which tremendously benefits travellers and entrepreneurs on both sides of the Atlantic.” You can watch a video of the opening here.
Schiphol Group also explained that they undertake international activities not only with a view to consolidating the competitive position of the Mainport (Amsterdam Airport Schiphol) at the strategic, operational and financial level, but to also strengthen its organisation and spread the commercial risks.
