Delta Air Lines is in process of a $1.2billion expansion at John F Kennedy International Airport’s (JFK) Terminal 4 . The  1.5-million square foot Terminal 4 will replace the 50-year old Terminal 3 and is schedule to be opened in 2013.

The new terminal will house one of Delta’s largest Sky Clubs, a new automated baggage handling system, faster security and more shopping and dining options.

’œThis is a game-changing project for our customers and the entire regional aviation system,’ said Chris Ward, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. ’œIt 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.’

Delta is the largest airline in the state of New York serving 11 communities with 439 daily departures and employs more than 7,000 people in the State of New York.

Very cool video. Looking forward to Delta’s new digs. Someone pointed out the “zombie kid” at 2:38. Didn’t notice it the first time. Made me laugh the 2nd time. Thanks for posting.
