JFK TWA Terminal May Finally Become Hotel

This is kind of cool, for those of us who grew up in the area and used to go to JFK and actually use this TWA terminal. The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that Jet Blue has proposed turning it into a hotel.

JetBlue Wants to Turn Former TWA Terminal Into Hotel

New York-based airline would partner with developer to renovate jet age structure at JFK


JetBlue Airways Corp. is angling to get into the hotel business, joining the growing ranks of developers and investors looking for lodging opportunities inside major U.S. airports.
The low-cost airline and its partner, New York-based hotel developer MCR Development LLC, are in advanced negotiations with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the rights to turn the iconic Trans World Airlines terminal at Kennedy Airport into a modern hotel, according to people familiar with the matter.

  1. Always loved this structure. Glad it was not demolished. Wouldn't having a hotel so close to the other terminals be a security risk?
