Terminal 1 Development

Project Highlights:

  • Improving the new global gateway to the new York metropolitan area
  • Received TSA approval of common use check-in

Project Description:

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) serves as the international gateway to the State of New York and to the nation, welcoming more international passengers to the United States than any other airport in the country. JFK Terminal One will be a world-class gateway, designed for the needs of the 21st century passenger, as well as one that serves and respects the needs of the neighboring communities in the Borough of Queens. Terminal One Group Association (TOGA) is a New York-based limited partnership of four international airlines: Air France, Japan Airlines, Korean Air and Lufthansa. TOGA was originally formed in 1994 and entered into a long-term Site Lease with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to finance, construct, maintain and operate a new passenger terminal facility at JFK, now known as Terminal One.

The baggage handling system is the key to the redevelopment of Terminal One, which is being funded by The Carlyle Group consortium, under the auspices of a Public-Private Partnership (P3). As a member of the BHS/CBIS Design-Build team, Studdiford Technical Solutions, LLC (STS) is providing BHS subject matter expertise and design oversight for the new Terminal, a brownfield site comprising inbound, outbound, FIS, and transfer BHS with early bag storage (EBS) capability.  The system will be only the third Individual Carrier System (ICS) in the United States, bringing state-of-the-art technology to the forefront of the new terminal development for outbound sortation.  STS’s role includes oversight of all BHS CBIS design for TSA compliance and TSA submittal preparation, as well as integration and commissioning support.
