Delta Air Lines has unveiled a new virtual tour (above) of its soon-to-be expanded terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport, slated for completion in 2013. The $1.2 billion project will add 491,000 square feet to the existing Terminal 4 structure at the airport — already one of the largest air terminals in North America, covering 1.5 million square feet and 165 acres. Delta currently occupies JFK’s Terminals 2 and 3, but the aging No. 3 will be phased out and replaced once Terminal 4 is finished. “This is a game-changing project for our customers and the entire regional aviation system,” Chris Ward, executive director of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, said in a statement. “It increases JFK’s capacity, vastly improves the customer experience for hundreds of thousands of Delta travelers and strengthens the economic competitiveness of the most important gateway in the country.” The new terminal will include a Delta Sky Club, larger shopping and dining areas and nine new international gates, bringing the airline’s total at the airport to 16. Gail Grimmett, Delta’s senior vice president for New York, said the project is expected to create 10,000 jobs and pour $1.6 billion into the local economy by 2014. — Sarabeth Sanders
